In 1999, I joined the military weighing 160 lbs. I began TRT in September of 2000 at 400 mg every 2 weeks, which was a high dosage according to my blood tests, but STILL was prescribed the same dosage throughout the years to follow. From 2001 - 2002, I was having issues with depression
, which is common in my genes. I was also on high doses of TRT which i believe added to my dysthemic disorder as I recall it being named. In March 0f 2002 I witnessed a catastrophic event that caused me to have some issues with adjusting to normal everyday occurrences, for which i had minor problems with prior to that. After that, my pulse rate was recorded at high rates IAW my records. Ever since the catastrophic event which i witnessed, my quality of sleep started to decline in which I had issues with falling asleep at night, even after working intense long hours during the day. I had issues with snoring and continued to gain weight as the years progressed, which I believe was a result of the high doses of testosterone
. I began to have major respiratory issues in 2003, which included pneumonia
, and bronchitis
. As time further progressed, I was diagnosed with GERD in 2005, gastroenteritis
, and anxiety. Furthermore, in 2006 this led to me being treated for all of the previous issues mentioned,esophageal reflux,UTI, Sinusitus maxillary, insomnia and insomnia, plus issues with edema, which I felt I had the entire time anyways. At that time i was having issues with daytime sleepiness
. I would show up late for work because I was so exhausted in the morning, I could not drive to work, snoring, and daytime fatigue. When I was at work, I would sneak out to my truck and take long naps, until my co-workers would come wake me up when they needed me, when things got too busy. My supervisors made it clear to me that they had an issue with me going to the doctor for treatment, because they believed I was trying to get out of work, so I rarely sought treatment. In 2007, I decided to discharge from the military, because i was having issues with my supervisors about my tardiness to work and always being too tired to work. After May 2007 when i discharged from service, I was never treated, but had issues with snoring and would stop breathing in my sleep for years, before one day in 2011, my new girlfriend at the time, suggested I see a doctor for the symptoms which you have named, because she believed I had this issue with sleep apnea
, in which she was correct. She probably saved my life, because I would have never sought treatment, for my snoring being a health issue. When I discharged from service in 2007, I weighed approx, 280 lbs. That's 120 gain in 7.25 years from when I joined in December 1999 at 160 lbs. From about 2002 - now, I've had issues with concentration. It's gotten so bad, even with treatment, I have had to drop out of school because I have a hard time comprehending what is being taught and what I am reading in books. Is this the explanation you are seeking?
