No prob, i'm really glad if it helped some!
Off course, it's not only about testosterone, there are also other hormones involved, such as prolactin, which totally kills the sex drive (for example, prolactin levels go way up immediately after orgasm/ejaculation, preventing you from having another round right away).
As i said, I'm pretty sure there are other hormones involved too, but i'm not that much into body chemistry, hope someone with more knowledge can chime in with some valuable info too!

Heh, funny, i mentioned prolactin...i just googled this out:
Source: Opiates, prolactin, and the dopamine receptor
The administration of a dopamine antagonist, chlorpromazine, and two opiates, morphine and methadone, resulted in a significant rise in serum PRL (prolactin) within 90-150 min. Prior administration of dopamine receptor agonists (apomorphine, levodopa, aand bromocriptine) blocked this effect. In contrast, cyproheptadine, a serotonin antagonist, did not. We suggest that the opiates induce hyperprolactinemia in man via dopamine receptor blockade.
So, there are other important things beside testosterone involved. According to this, if one would for example take bromocriptine before opiates, sex-drive would still be there. This seems quite interesting, well to me at least...
If i understood correctly, you have zero sex-drive even when you're clean for longer periods of time, and your testosterone levels are normal? Who knows, maybe you should test your prolactin levels too? Prolactinomas, benign (non-cancerous) tumors of the pituitary gland cause high prolactin levels. Stress can cause high prolactin levels too. But hey, i'm no doctor, who knows whats really going on...
Anyway, a visit to the specialist seems like the best possible thing you could do, no one should be completely without desire for sex, sounds so bloody scary to me!
Stay well man, i really hope you'll figure out whats going on!
