My Erectile Dysfunction/Mental ProblemsHello,
I understand that forums can be a great resource and the more information given to you, the respondents, can help you make a more accurate recommendation... SO here goes.
I am 34 years old, unemployed, live with parents, Army veteran, in good shape and health (mostly), smoke 1-2 packs a day, do not drink and eat a mostly healthy diet with the occasional falling off the wagon (turning to soda and other sugary foods).
I used to be an extremely sexual person, always in the mood to the point where the urge would become uncontrollable. I have had about 7 different instances of gonorrhea infection in the last 17 years, with the most recent being in January of this year.
For the past 3 1/2 years I have had extremely watery emissions. For the first 2 years, I still had the ability to ejaculate multiple times (sometimes up to 6 or 7) per day. Sexual desire and performance had not diminished at all. I chalked up my watery emissions to advancing age/past drug usage.
For the past year and a half my erections have begun to suffer on an off until about 6 months ago when they seem to have become chronic. By suffer, I mean there was difficulty in achieving a fully hard erection and I began to ejaculate faster. Way faster than I wanted to, to the point of being premature. Also, within the last 6 months or so, since my last bout with gonorrhea, I have only had a couple sexual encounters and with the same person and my desire to have sex has almost completely vanished.
I have become manic in my mood, going from being depressed and melancholy to adventurous/restless exited within a span of 30 minutes to an hour. Although most of my time is spent isolated where I turn to video games and the internet to distract me from my terrible state. I avoid human contact and fear them with no reason. I am extremely irritable and angry with parents and loved ones. Any interaction with people whom I just meet or do not know results in extremely nervous tension and strained conversation where all I wish to do is run away as fast as I can. As I said, other times I feel an intense desire to be around people and to adventure all over the world, but as soon as a social interaction occurs (could be as simple as looking over at someone next to me in traffic) I start to get extremely nervous and anxious. I have become forgetful and have trouble remembering things that just happened as well as things in recent (past few years) history.
When having an intense bowel movements, I get semi-erections but with no pleasure involved. At night, sometimes I wake up with erections, but never have emissions. Same is said for when I am half awake in the morning, semi-erections that seem to last while I am half asleep but as soon as I am fully awake they pass as does the urge to encourage them.
Rarely, maybe one time every week or two, I will watch porn just to do it and with actual stimulation can achieve an erection that will last for a short while and give the ability to ejaculate, but even this erection is not fully there as it was in the past.
Many times after urinating a few drops or a small amount will come out after I have already finished and am walking away from the toilet. Urinating after ejaculating causes burning sensation sometimes. My penis is cold much of the time to the touch. At some points it even feels numb, leading me to believe it was nerve related. I also experience cold hands and feet, but that has been something I've had for many years, maybe 15 or so.
What I have tried to remedy this situation:
-Anti-candida, ketogenic, paleo diets
-Supplements (alot) I can list them if that would be helpful
-Saw the family practitioner who ran all the tests he could as far as testoterone/thyroid/cholesterol etc and found nothing wrong... referred to urologist
-Saw a urologist who took a urine sample and checked for an enlarged prosate but said they were both normal and said it was most likely because of the supplements I was taking, recommended I cut back or eliminate supplements, but to no avail.
-Saw an acupunturist for a couple appointments who said I had very weak chi/vital force, did not experience improvement in symptoms from visits, although I only went to two
-Quit smoking for 2 months on two separate occasions but was unable to continue
The only results I had were when I quit smoking for a couple months, started supplementing with things for blood ciruculation/blood flow (panax ginseng, alpha lipoic acid, gingko biloba, turmeric, pycnogenols, Hylands Bioplasma Cell Salts). I also started taking supplements shown to help with mental anxiety called picamilon, ashwagandha, l-theanine, and dl-phenylalanine. During these two months (mid-August to mid-November) I ate chicken with grass fed butter and things were going well. Mentally, I was not as nervous and looked forward to interacting with people. Sex was good and things worked when I needed them to, but my ejaculate was still very watery during this time.
Things went downhill after I changed my diet back to including soda and other added sugar/processed foods. Since then nothing has helped return to this state, even with replication of conditions.
Most recently, I tried an 18-day water only fast and broke it with only organic vegetables and poultry. This has increased night time/morning erections but not during the day and has had no effect on sexual desire/appetite. HOWEVER, during the fast I noticed my penis was much warmer, even moreso than my body temperature and the 'hang' was full but extremely limp, as were the testes (which were slightly cool). Also, after finishing and attempting to see how things responded to erotic videos, my ejaculate was thicker than before and was not coming out in watery spurts.
Remembering back to the two months in this period I had relief of symptoms, I remember the Hylands Bioplasma Cell Salts and discovered they were homeopathic, which led me to here.
I have been perusing the forums for a good part of the day and noticed a few things that seem like they could be of help but would like one of you experts to give me some guidance and/or recommendations.
Thank any and all who so choose to respond. I feel like I am reaching the end of my rope when it comes to this debilitating condition. God bless!
