Has getting more agitated and irritated become a new issue? Do the smallest things spark anger without knowing why? Sometimes in life, things can get us upset for the strangest reasons and it may not be known why. Has it been considered that it could be the result of having low testosterone? Most men would never think that the cause of the their agitations and mood swings is a hormone issue. Why would they? With stresses of family, finances, work, life, and so many other things. It makes sense to feel stressed in life but it is also important to know oneself and recognize when it just feels like a little bit too much.
