Avatar m tn For some people, outbreaks get fewer and shorter, but not everyone. After about 2 years, the outbreak frequency tends to level off.

It states that I have tested positive for steroids due to this elevated testosterone level and now being suspended. I have never taken any type of steroids or drug for that matter.

20003388 tn?1515166040 So, for years now I have suffered from extreme fatigue and brain fog/memory issues. I had my testosterone and thyroid checked, both were low. I on now on thyroid meds and testosterone replacement but it hasn't made a dent in my fatigue and brain fog despite my levels being optimal now.
