If a young man's low testosterone is a problem for a couple trying to get pregnant , gonadotropin injections may be an option in some cases. These are hormones that signal the body to produce more testosterone. This may increase the sperm count. Hedges also describes implantable testosterone pellets, a relatively new form of treatment in which several pellets are placed under the skin of the buttocks, where they release testosterone over the course of about three to four months. Injections and nasal gels may be other options for some men.
I had fatigue, depression and weakness, and burning in my feet. Soon I had very bad back pain. Drs. Could not figure out what I had. I went misdiagnosed for almost four long months. During these months all my symptoms got worse. My legs were stiff and my saddle area was getting numb. They tested me for ms and came negative. I googled what mimics ms, and got to a site called b12 org. This saved my life. I got tested for b12 and even with supplementation 1000mcg a day I was 200. Which means before supplementation it could have been much lower. I got b12 injections twice a week. I got significantly better after the first injections, however Three years later I still have muscle weaknes, tingling and pain in my legs. I also had low vit D I took it for a time, but it bothers my stomach. I eat it with food. Any vitamin deficiency has to be corrected before serious damage ocurrs. I was almost vegetarian and this is a risk factor for b12. If there is b12 deficiency it needs to be corrected as this can demylianate your spinal cord and cause irreversible psychiatric and neurological damage. If they can't test you for b12. I would take it. It is water soluble and benign. I presently take 5000mcgs every week and have an injection every six months. Hope my experience helps.
