I have fibromyalgia, as well as sleep apnea, so maybe this is more complicated. I am 43. I was on testosterone shots, but felt like my chest was getting congested on them and I was gaining weight too much. The doctor also said that he thought injections causes heart attacks and switched me to Androgel. Since starting Androgen, my libido has went from about 30% of what it should be to about 1%, barely anything. I also am dizzy, have headaches, and extremely fatigued. Can Androgel cause that in some people? It's almost like a sinus infection but I'm not sure that it really is. My doctor suggested switching to axiron. It is possible for Androgel to cause bad fatigue and dizziness or lightheadedness?

Hello, Brett! How are you?

I'm not a doctor, but what I can tell you is that what you've described are the typical symptoms of hormonal withdrawal. It seems that you may not be absorbing as much of the testosterone as you were with the shots.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

Have you started the Axiron, yet? Did it help?
