I've been posting here over the past few months about my erection problems. I had slightly high bp and some low hormone blood tests. I took care of the bp and the hormones stabilized eventually but i still didn't have my rock hard erections, took way too much effort and constant stimulation to get hard. I have a pretty healthy lifetyle and I am very confident (through this whole thing too) Ive been to a GP, urologist, endocrinologist, and now an orthopedic surgeon. All were useless except the orthopedic. Gp, and urologist said everything was normal/in my head and gave me viagra samples, it worked but its not the same. Who wouldve figured what I thought was a back sprain could kill my sexual function? So here's the break through: I had a herniated disk that was pinching my nerves! In the past 4 or so months, ive repeatedly hurt my back doing squats and lifting things. I am very strict on form and don't work out my limits so these injuries really surprised me. Turns out I probably got a hernia and reinjured it. I always let time for the pain to go away before resuming, but apparantly it wasn't enough for it to heal. I freaked the last time i hurt my back, half my penis lost sensation for a few days and terrible pinched nerves down my leg. I havent lifted any weights in about 6 weeks and this past week, my erections are back to normal!!!! I don't have to think about stayin hard, it just stays! Im still not cleared to lift yet, but i will be listening to doctors advice. I FEEL LIKE A MAN AGAIN!!!!!!!
