Hormone imbalance in young men

Common Questions and Answers about Hormone imbalance in young men


Avatar m tn During this time I was not eating well and sleeping very little I lost about 20 pounds in less than a month. I plan on retaking my hormone test after seeing a endocrinologist this time more detailed and indepth. I expect the results to be a little better as I have put the weight back on, been eating healthy and sleeping better. Blah blah blah blah I just want to fix what ever is wrong with me.
Avatar n tn Well, I'm in the middle of testing now but what I can tell you is that you are supposed to sleep less as you age. This is something you cannot ignore so please look into it even if it has nothing to do with the thyroid. One of the symptoms of hypothyroid that I know of is that your digestion slows down, this means you get more constipated and more time passes between bowel movements (which can lead to all sorts of problems by itself).
Avatar n tn I think I do have some sort of hormone imbalance because, despite not having been sexually active in over two years, I really never have any desire for it. Even when I was sexually active, it was only because I was in a long-term relationship... I felt like the middle-aged women in movies that are only doing anything because their partner persists. The low libido doesn't really *bother* me. I now have red, irritated eyes.
Avatar f tn Acne is more common in males than in females. It is especially common in males around puberty. Androgens (testosterone and others) are involved in acne. Sebum keeps our skin smooth and supple. Extra androgens stimulate excess sebum production; drying sebum blocks the gland outlet at the skin surface, causing retention of sebum. Vitamin A deficiency can aggravate acne and make it more difficult to heal. Vitamin A or beta-carotene and zinc aid the resolution of acne.
Avatar n tn Type 2 hypothyroidism or thyroid hormone resistance is caused by an intracellular calcium/potassium imbalance in all the cells of the body, caused by too much calcium and too little potassium inside these cells, neutralizing the effects of the thyroid hormones that are produced and making them ineffective in governing our bodies' metabolic functions.
Avatar f tn ( I'm not joking... in the past two years.. I've slowly developed it all...
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar m tn I have a feeling that the chronic masturbation has caused an imbalance of some kind of chemical or hormone in my brain. I have had a simple testosterone level check and they found my T to be in normal range but DHEA to be very high. Is the masturbation causing me the anxiety/panic episodes? if so, why and what can i do (other than quitting sex/masturbation) to stop it?
Avatar n tn further good news for him is that this isn't unheard of, far from it, it common in young men (they just dont like talking about it) i would not be to concerned by that if i were you. it is a serious dent to your ego i understand that, but infact you will find that your inexperience here is the problem, not some disfunctional penis.
393685 tn?1425816122 Take a look at the archives here on Med help at the hundreds of posts regarding women ( and men) in the same situtations she is in with her weight! In fact I just responded on one today that was posted days ago! Really it is our chance to maybe turn the table a bit for us as individuals as well as millions of others! She is a Global icon for many and if she is speaking publically about this as her problem - we should respond.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative. I sometimes wonder if it came from the boyfriend at that time.
Avatar f tn i was fine for awhile and now it is happening again. my period is due in 5 days. i think it might be hormone related especially since it is worse around the time i am to get or have my perioc. since most of use are women also. i dont know but my arms feel funny all the time afterwards. its like its always there in my arms. but i am very glad to hear i am not the only one going through this. i also am worried it is something else. i wish we had answers.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn I would try to see an Internist to measure all your hormones and see what's really going on in there. It wouldn't be wise to take (for example) growth hormone when the real issue is further up the food chain so to speak and needs to be dealt with. What you describe must have a definite cause, perhaps a pituitary issue. Who did the saliva tests? It seems that you've had the tests but that no one is addressing the results. What does your doc say about all this?
Avatar n tn I am in my early teens and have been masturbating since a very young age. For about a year now, when I get very aroused, my vagina begins to cramp and sore up and it feels very uncomfortable. When I masturbate with this pain, the contractions during orgasm are very painful as well. I don't know what's causing this problem or how I can fix it, but I would really like to fix it.
Avatar f tn If you are a man, and you have an excess of androgens, there are probably medications to bring your levels to normal level. If all the men in your family are hairy, then it's genetic. Personally, I like hairy men with lots of testosterone. I'm very feminine, and I like men very masculine. I realize, however, that young people today are into this hairless revolution I don't quite understand. If you're very hairy you can investigate laser removal of hair.
940642 tn?1336067111 or Maybe she is tired, does she work outside the home, if she does not is she depressed? Hormone imbalance? C where im going with this? Its anybodys guess, so talk to your wife! Then come back and let us know what she said!
Avatar n tn I also sleep on my right side with my arm up under my pillow to cradle my neck as i have severe neck arthritis from a car accident 6 or 7 years ago. i don't know if that is a factor in my numbness. i also notice that it goes numb more often on the days i do wear my bra. i would appreciate any advice or if you also have had a numb mid back, any suggestions.
Avatar n tn This type of migraine occurs mostly in adolescent and young women. It results from a spasm to the basilar artery, a major blood vessel at the base of the brain. Symptoms can include vertigo (dizziness), impaired vision, poor motor coordination, difficulty speaking or hearing, and altered consciousness. Benign exertional headache: This is a type of vascular headache triggered by physical exertion, such as running, bending and lifting, or even coughing, sneezing.
Avatar n tn Also, if you get on www.womentowomen.com you can find answers. Hormone imbalance also occurs in men. I got my hormones balanced out by Dr. Von Johnson in Provo, Utah. After years of struggling to find answers with many different doctors, I finally found relief. Bio-identical Hormones are awesome.
Avatar n tn for the past 6 months I have been experiencing a sore tightness in both of my calf muscles sporadically. It does not seem to be related to exercise since I can go for a run and feel nothing... but then I can be sitting and all of a sudden my calves (always both at the same time) start to ache and feel tight. Sometimes they feel so sore that I can almost not walk. Water seems to help on occasions. I can't understand why all of a sudden I may be becoming dehydrated so that doesn't seem logical...
Avatar f tn Gosh, AF is due tomorrow and I'm so hoping and praying hard that she doesn't arrive. I monitor my bbt very closely and AF always arrive on the same day of a bbt drop in the morning. I have been stressing every morning these few days waiting to take my thermometer reading. I even dream about taking my bbt and seeing it go down before I wake up!
Avatar m tn The symptoms of heart attack in women are not the same as for men. Listen to what your body is telling you and do not rely on the internet to heal you.
Avatar m tn However, I have had this same hairline since a child, its just becoming more and more of an issue. Could this be due to a hormone imbalance?
Avatar m tn My doctors would not test for my hormone levels because they said I am too young. This year the smell and frothiness just got worsened and it's starting to smell exactly like the roast chicken from Costco every single day, yet I only had it once awhile ago.
Avatar m tn In general chat, the one thing that almost all of these young men have in common, is that they all used Axe products regularly! Sorry for your hair loss, I can attest that there is help out there, and for the past 2.5 years I've been blessed to be able to help a lot of men and women, from all walks of life, and of all ages, with regrowth and to truly love their hair again!
