I wasn't sure where to put this posting so Healthy Penis seemed the logical place.... I was reading in another posting indirectly about the effects of aging and thought I'd post something specific on the topic. I'm 53 and for several years have noticed the onset of little quirks that appear to be the result of the aging process. For example, overall I'm in excellent health yet I'm beginning to sense a 'slowing down' of things. I've got occasional aches from activities I always took for granted. My recovery time from such activities seems to take longer than before and when I roll out of bed in the morning, I'm not quite as limber as I think I should be. I don't have arthritis that I'm aware of but occasionally my fingers feel tight. It doesn't happen a lot, only at night so far, but enough that I'm aware of the phenomenon. I'll wake up with my fingers feeling like I've been gripping a broom or rake for hours. It's probably because they curl naturally when sleeping but I have to slowly straighten my fingers out by hand and press them flat to loosen them up again. I've never had computer related carpal tunnel issues before but recently noticed waking up from a nap or in the middle of the night with numbness in my fingers. It seems to involve the angle of my wrist(s) when sleeping. I have to consciously straighten my wrists to get blood flowing again. I've also noticed some recent pain in my elbow joint but not sure what that's about because I can't say I've done anything to injure it. And speaking of naps, seems I need (and enjoy) them more and definitely when I get home from work. My naps can be as short as 10mins to as long as 90mins or thereabouts and even then, when waking I'm still feeling slow.... What about you guys??
