Can they test for a low testosterone level? I think that is what is wrong with me the symptoms I have a severe weakness. An average man is supposed to be able to bencpress 3-4 times his weight thats what I was told its hard for me to do 2.3 times my weight. The other symptom I don't know if it is really one at all but I am very small for my weight. I am 5-7 and 223 but I look about 150.

Yes they can. Something like 20% - 50% of men between ages of 50 and 70 have low testosterone. The solution is simple, a monthly shot.

You must see your doctor immediately! Do you have man breasts (a sure sign of low testosterone), by the way? You definitely should be able to bench at least 666 pounds. One solution is to set up a home gym and work out by yourself, you do not want to expose your weakness to others in public. Best of luck!
