In 2007 I had crushing fatigue. Found out I had mild sleep apnea and low T. I fixed the apnea and my T level has been better (also with lifestyle changes)
Starting in June I got that awful fatigue again. Needed loads caffeine to get thru the day.  I could not figure out what was causing it, Did my T drop again and why.
Then I remembered reading on this site about painkillers causing T to crash. Then it hit me, back in May I had shoulder surgery and was told to take Percocet to minimize pain while stretching the shoulder. I was only taking one pill per day (for seven weeks). I stopped taking them three weeks ago and I now feel much better.

Could be that.
Fatigue, especially with those on TRT, can be complicated to treat.
Discounted labs has a fatigue panel that you could have run to get to the bottom of it.


Also, if you're experiencing low T like symptoms, I'd consider trusting your care to a TRT specialist (www.primebody.com).

Lots of things can cause that kind of fatigue.  Be sure to check out this page on the site:

And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
