Avatar n tn Anyway, it has always crossed my mind that porn and even television in general has had a great impact on my erectile dysfunction. I'm 28 now and even still suffer from the problem. And yes, it's because I'm still addicted to porn. It's hard to stop, especially with the new free porn sites available. But don't get me wrong, I've had sexual encounters with plenty of women; and some of them, I've failed to plow my **** in their vagina unless I use viagra.
Avatar m tn Electro-Shock Wave Treatment (ESWT) Recently, there has been a lot of research into using ESWT in the treatment of ED. This treatment involves sending shockwaves into the base and shaft of the penis. This stimulates the penis to make new and healthy blood vessels thereby curing the ED. 5. Vacuum Devices Vacuum devices work by mechanically drawing blood into the penis. The blood is then kept in the penis with a constricting device at the base, usually a rubber band. 6.
739070 tn?1338607002 Ren I have ms and autonomic dysfunction. Its hell. Research baroreceptor failure. There's some interesting stuff in there. Might be helpful to you. I am told this is secondary to ms and the best we can do is try to control symptoms as best we can. My bp is all over the place. It can range from 200/110 to 80/40 all in one day. It's scary and frustrating. My thermastat is broken it seems. I get unexplained adrenaline dumps that are horrible. Mornings are worst for me.
Avatar n tn Due to the infection, I was in a coma for a little over a month during which I was catherized. As a result I have suffered erectile dysfunction and over-active bladder. After extensive testing the urologist believes that the root cause is prostatitis. Research is inconclusive on the efficacy of antibiotics for treatment of chronic prostatitis due to poor absorption by prostate tissue. Can you provide ANY suggestions regarding effective treatments for prostatitis?

Avatar m tn When compared with the other erectile dysfunction drugs, generic Viagra is found to be the best treatment for the erectile dysfunction. Generic Viagra like Kamagra, Zenegra, and Caverta are the favorite choice of the customers to get rid of the unwanted condition known as erectile dysfunction. Scientists conducted lot of research to find out the reason behind the impotency.
Avatar f tn I need some advice on what to do. My boyfriend is experiencing tremors, no sex drive + erectile dysfunction, he is tired a lot as well his eating habits are off plus I believe he is depressed. He finds his vision affected sometimes and he is very light sensitive. He had his eyes checked and they were fine. He had his blood tested and all were fine. At first I was thinking hyperthyroid. His heart, liver, kidney are in good shape. Plus his blood pressure is normal.
428185 tn?1203745389 Following this logic though, even without surgery or radiation, you also have some risk factors for erectile dysfunction. Perhaps you need to discuss the odds of your sex life worsening with your doctor even without curative treatment - if the odds are equivalent with surgery or radiation, you may need to reconsider your position.
Avatar m tn I don't have time to work on any more articles on my website, but I do run across some things that I believe are very interesting in cancer treatment/research that you may want to discuss with your physician (may still be too 'out there' for them, though). I hope to do this monthly, but work has me super busy...keep fighting everyone! 1) "Increase" Bloodflow to Tumors?
Avatar n tn In choosing between alternatives 1 and 2a, my concerns are firstly what is the difference in impotence, including erectile dysfunction and secondly, incontinence. I understand both treatment alternatives will result in impotence and incontinence, so I am just trying to get information on the resulting differences, if any, between the 2 treatments. Are there any other factors I should consider in choosing between these 2 alternatives ?
Avatar m tn Have any of the men had experience with testosterone replacement therapy on or evern off treatment? My med team has suggested TESTIM gel primarily because of significant weight/muscle loss as well as lethargy and weakness. For those not familiar, testosterone replacement as well as certain steroids are often used prescribed for cancer and aids patients to help stop wasting and build them back up. I started tx at my ideal weight of 176 and am currently trying to stablize it around 150.
Avatar n tn lung issues, neuropathy, arthritis, vision problems, thyroid dysfunction, erectile dysfunction etc. etc. are all due to depression. I think you are dead wrong! ALL of these are documented potential side effects of interferon, in the literature. Its just that the literature does not indicate that the problems might persist long term in a significant group of patients. How are you so certain that the interferon has nothing to do with these problems again????
253566 tn?1219683299 I developed joint and muscle pain, periods of extreme fatigue, skin reactions, sun sensitivity, my blood pressure became above normal for the first time in my life, I have developed metabolic syndrome, high blood sugar (as in pre-diabetes), erectile dysfunction, recurring welt-like mouth and cheek sores, lots of gum loss, and bone thinning! I struggle with energy and motivation issues, and I often feel like my lungs burn when I workout or do aerobic exercise.
Avatar m tn Many of us are experiencing the progression toward diabetes, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, erectile dysfunction, autoimmune effects, etc.all stemming from doing lengthy rounds of interferon. We need SOLUTIONS to these problems, not people or doctors who stick their heads in the sand and claim that none of these problems are (yet) proven to result from tx. Well now we are finally getting studies linking therapy to serious medical problems...
233616 tn?1312790796 A guy has a heart attack at 45 because he took treatment. doesn't mean the treatment caused it. could have been his genetics and a million gut bombs..or that he was a prison subject, still it will go down in the list of possible side effevts. there's no way to prove a drug causes evert reaction. Not when they are only around for a few years anyway.Part of the bad rap for GH comes from all the misuse, athletic and hollywood, but docs won't prescribe megadoses for people to become the hulk.

Avatar m tn Women are now become more cautious and are asking the men before the marriage about the erectile dysfunction. No woman wants her man to suffer from the erectile dysfunction. Men can get rid of the erectile dysfunction, improve their relationships with the partner, and save their marriage with the help of the erectile dysfunction drugs like Kamagra, Tadalis, or Zenegra. Men have to take the ED drugs 1 hour before the sexual activity.
Avatar n tn "In addition, the tx also has a very negative impact on erectile function. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Below is from the last link you included was an article written 10 years ago..and is very ambiguous and seems undecided whether or not INF. has any effect on ED,and that more studies needed to be done. Could you list and post those more current studies to support your statement above.

2106944 tn?1333960537 Well, I went to a urologist, today. He told me that I had three issues: 1) mild epididymitis, 2) varicose veins near the base of the penis and along the left side, and 3) poor blood flow out of the penis. For all three, he told me there was no treatment worthwhile. When I told him that the epididymitis was a chronic issue for me, and it was often very painful, he gave me a few tips. For example, he told me to avoid riding a bicycle, not sit down for long periods of time, etc.
Avatar m tn Fortunately the erectile dysfunction that you are having is mostly psychological. In many cases, it is a temporary condition that will go away with little or no treatment. If you have difficulty having or keeping an erection more than 25% of the time, it is considered a problem.
Avatar f tn In such cases, prescribing FDA-approved erectile dysfunction medications could be appropriate There has been far less research regarding opiate-induced endocrine deficiencies in women than in men. Hypothetically, androgen treatment would relieve clinical symptoms and reduce risks of osteoporosis in affected women. In younger women, oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) might have benefit; particularly an OCP with a relatively androgenic progestin component.

356518 tn?1322267242 The real symptoms of Parkinson's are anxiety, depression, sweating, erectile dysfunction and bladder problems. “I refer to them as invisible symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
