I'll just give you a timeline of what's been going on with me for the last week:
Friday - Sore throat Saturday - Sore throat was subsiding, but I stupidly strained my vocal chords yelling loudly Sunday - Throat only hurt a little, but a cold started to develop with a little cough, started taking antibiotics either this day or the day before Monday - Cold with a little sore throat, cough, and a lot of mucus in nose. Whenever I tried to blow my nose, not all of it would come out and there would be some blood in the mucus that did come out. Tuesday - Same conditions as Monday, but after taking antibiotics for a couple days, symptoms were getting a little better Wednesday - Same conditions but stuffy nose was pretty much gone except for in the morning when I wake up. Thursday - Woke up eyes shut by discharge, pink eye developed. Throat still a little sore, still have a cough, nose stuffy but only in the morning. Cough was really bad at night, felt the urge to cough every second. Today - Same as yesterday. In the morning, a lot of thick bloody mucus came out when I blew my nose. However, nose is not stuffy, still have a cough. Feel like cough has gotten worse since it began. Sore throat is still not totally gone.
What do I have? The pinkeye is not irritating/burning/itching, just slightly red with a lot of discharge when I wake up that I have to wash out. One thing I noticed is that my symptoms get worse at night but are pretty good during the day. I've had no other symptoms other than the ones mentioned above. I've been taking Amoxicillin/Clavulanate tablets twice a day.View Thread
I was diagnosed with epididymitis two weeks ago, but I had to stop taking the ciproflaxin due to the severe side effects. Now what I want to know is does having this affect my ability to get an erection? Im an active 25 year old. as of late I've been having trouble maintaining or getting one unless I try hard. Sometimes I even lose my erection during intercourse. I also no longer get erections in the morning. I'm very paranoid at the moment since I can't stop thinking of erectile dysfunction. Since my financial status isn't good, I don't think I could afford a specialist. Please help.View Thread

I just recently turned 50. I'm healthy - 6'2" 205. I eat well, don't smoke, don't drink much and exercise occasionally. I've had a recent physical and I have no physical issues that could cause ED. My testosterone level is in the 400s. Not high but not low. My sex drive is as strong as ever and my wife is very attractive. I haven't watched porn in over a month and I rarely masterbate. However, we have had some marriage problems over the last year as she had an emotional affair and there's been lots of family stress. My wife's sex drive and is lower than it used to be and she is more inhibited in bed than she was about a year ago. Before the affair was discovered but during some other problems, I began occasionally losing my erection (1 out of 5 times) and having less than stellar erections many other times. I find the problem to occur more in the morning than any other time. I still get several strong erections during the night and when I receive oral. I'm certain this is a self fulfilling prophecy as I have become more and more worried about not getting or losing my erection. I've tried pills on occasion and they work great but I don't want to rely on them. I take supplements too to try to increase T levels and drive but they may just be snake oil. I really need some strategy to overcome the anxiety and get the confidence back. Hypnosis? Supplements? Any advice?View Thread
