    Low testosterone levels and headaches

    My husband has had chronic daily headaches (not classic migraines) for many years, with no success in finding a cause. We recently found out that he has a very low testosterone level. Does anyone know of a connection between the chronic headaches and low testosterone?

    Hiya and welcome,

    This is a good questions for his doctor. I'm sorry your husband is having to deal with this pain. You do need to check with the doctor about this and share your symptoms and concerns. He needs to seek a professionals opinion.
    Let us know how things are going please.
