It was about a year and I think the fact that I exercised regularly helped. If I stopped exercising the anxiety would start coming back but not nearly as bad as before. My sex drive came back from nothing but was still something I had to really work at. I had always had a "drive" on the high side before fin. Fast forward a few years I went back to school and gained a bunch of weight as I no longer had time to study and stayed up all night doing class and homework. Things start going back downhill again and kept getting worse and worse till I HAD to go to my Dr in order to function. I was so tired that it would take me hours to get out of my house on the weekend. I was late to work everyday. I woke up every morning in a stupor
My dr ran tests and says I have symptoms of mbs- which means you are close to having several serious medical problems if you don't get your act together real soon. Ironically 2 of the least serious symptoms are Low T and baldness. How they can happen at the same time I don't understand but that is what they say. I have been on a low dosage of T since last month and already feel much better. The stupor is gone, the anxiety/depression gone, energy has shot up and weight already dropping. Drive is high again, probably higher as I wake up feeling 18 in the morning.
Some people blame mbs on Fin but I think Fin may have made me vuneralable but the weight is what really triggered it.
Good luck and please don't procrastinate too long like I did...
