Patient Comments: Low Testosterone (Low T) - Experience

Please describe your experience with low-T.

Comment from: RS, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: April 11

I am 42, my T level is 35, yeah nonexistent. I regularly see a pain specialist for chronic low back pain. I"m on the medication Duragesic and have been for 8 years. My family doctor did what any good doctor would do, blood test and then MRI to check the pituitary gland for adenomas. The MRI results were normal. His opinion is my pain medications are the problem.
