wow, sounds like you have a lot of things going wrong.

are you overweight? eating too much calories and drinking alcohol can cause excessive weight and this can cause estrogen levels to rise in your body, this can cause breast growth and loss of erections and shrinkage of your penis size and fatigue.

do you drink alcohol?

you need to cut your calories and not drink alcohol and exercise regularly to help improve your testosterone function

exercise will help your sleep as well.

get copies of your scan reports of your liver and lungs. I would be happy to review them for you.

you need to stop drinking alcohol.

alcohol causes you to gain weight and is empty calories and encourses your body to make more estrogen.

if you want more testosterone in your body, you need to stop alcohol.

alcohol inflames your stomach and causes you to have gastritis

alcohol causes you to have poor sleep.

are you exercising regularly?
