I have been experiencing these ejaculatory spells roughly once every 2-3 nights. At first I never thought anything about it, for example if I was having a sexual dream or something. Now I've noticed it happening for no apparent reason. It's very stressful to wake up in the middle of the night and have to change my underwear or use the bathroom. My parents probably think I'm fooling around but I know that not to be the case. Usually when this happens I also have to urinate. Sometimes during the day I feel like I'm not fully emptying my bladder and will have to make shorter more frequent trips to the bathroom. I have had a UTI before, when I was about 16 (currently 22), but my symptoms were more prominent then (burning, blood, etc.). There has been a certain mildewy odor about me for a long time, since before my UTI. Hard to tell where it is coming from though. This has definetly led to my PATM life. I am really overwhelmed to hear so many people dealing with the same problems. I couldn't imagine living like this for 20 years but I'm well on my way at over 6 years. Is there someone out there who can help me? What should I say to my doctor?View Thread
So here's the deal, I have been experiencing pain starting in my left side (ribs/back) for the past few days. It gets worse after laying down or going to sleep. I can feel a constant burning, bubbling effect (also hearing growling) in my lower abdomen. This morning I also felt pressure in this area and the same aching pain in my lower back.
After the steak dinner last night I surprisingly felt weak. Today, after eating two meals I had no energy. I'm still urinating ok and having bowel movements. It's like my body is not absorbing anything from the food or it's just working so hard to fight whatever this is I can't tell.
I wake up with a really dry mouth/throat and I can't drink enough water for it to go away. For the past couple days I've had a mild fever (taking advil helps). Most of this has been happening since before the antibiotics so I don't think it's from the meds (stopped taking for 2 days to see).
My parents would most definetly try to downplay all this and tell me to wait a few days to see how I feel. Then call the doc to go through all the mumbo jumbo of taking more meds, seeing another specialist, or more outpatient stuff. I'm personally sick and tired that nobody in my family knows what an EMERGENCY IS!!!!!!!!! 6 years. 6 years of shutting me up. Telling me what they want to hear, that I'm perfectly healthy, and I must be making it all up. I knew this day was coming. It's going to slap everyone in the face. OMG my kids in pain and why didn't I ever know about this?.......................................................................... Ugh, yea maybe because you didn't listen. In one ear and out the other. Are you kidding me?!?!?!
I apologize. This is a very difficult time for me. Thank you so much for everything. It's been a blessing it really has. I will take care of this. If I end up in the hospital for a few days my family will just have to deal with it. Whatever the outcome it's better than being in the ground.View Thread
Is it true that too much sexual activity can damage your kidneys?...Or is this just another theory??
How would excessive sexual activity affect the body? Someone addicted to going solo would make themselves ill?
Doctors will always say it's normal to masturbate, In fact it's healthy, everybody does it. Then they tell you things like masturbation is good for prostate health. Whether this is theory or fact...what I take from all this is, it may be good for one area of the body and bad for the other. You just never hear about the bad.
In this day and age we are too casual about sexuality. It's accepted, you see it everywhere. I just saw a commercial for a pilot on tv and these guys talked about banging someone on a couch. One of the punchlines is horney guys. Seriously, this is where sitcoms are going?!?!
Anyways, I'm going to continue to use this post for as long as I have to. Hope you will stick around. Thanks for all your knowledge and support!View Thread
This would explain why my anxiety kicks in after masturbating(odor coming from semen) and why reactions from people seem to get worse after masturbating. Not to mention the fact that my bowel movements are sometimes very foul smelling. This is just unreal.
Now do you understand my pain? This is PATM, or at least for me. Just imagine all the young people out there right now who have no clue. They do not understand what they could potentially be doing to harm themselves down the road. Most likely they will end up like me if they don't find somebody who can catch the symptoms.
A couple weeks will turn into a couple years really fast. Before you know it you're watching your life through a window and it's all gone. Dreams are gone. Friends are lost. Every day is painful. You are never really there, even if you wanted to be. Living with it would crush anybody. If there are people out there like me, this should be an eye opener.View Thread
I just read about damp heat/cold damp on acupuncture.com. It says that wet dreams point to kidney and liver Yin deficiency. It also says that too much sexual activity can damage kidneys. I have never heard that before. Wowzers.
The foul odor would be associated with damp heat I think (you're spot on). It can be true not only in urine but in feces and semen aswell. I feel like a chicken with its head cut off! Clueless.................
If only I knew someone that would understand all of this and take it seriously. There's only so many people I can turn to who will listen. As many doctors visits as I've made displaying the same symptoms, getting the same deer in headlights response it's a joke. I can't believe this!
Hopefully none of the info above is incorrect, if it is I'm sure you can correct me. Thanks!View Thread
Oops! I mean prostatitis. Anyways, I am curious about this TCM assessment. It seems silly now when you stop and think about all the doctors appointments I've made over the years. Lots of blank faces, laughs, and people thinking I'm crazy. Not to mention all the time and money I've wasted basically going around in circles over this.
So how exactly does acupuncture work or should I say believed to work?
I have never heard of shiatsu before, is that like the same thing as acupuncture?
Again thank you for replying! I look forward to finding out more from you.View Thread
Wow! This is amazing! Thank you for sharing this with me. I recently made a visit to my urologist who suggested it could be prostatis. He has put me on antibiotic meds for 2 weeks but I'm suppost to have a renal ultrasound done (out patient). After that he wants me to come back for a full body scan. Will the ultrasound or scan detect any of this?
He did explain that digestive issues like constipation could lead to changes in urinary frequencies. I do have a burning sensation that originates from my anal area.
Also I am taking meds for acid reflux. My tongue is white in appearance towards the back of my mouth and I have noticed that I spit out mucus or something a lot. Why don't people know about this here?View Thread
Right...Well, I was basically going off on a tangent about the PATM stuff. I have previously read countless posts from people on medhelp.com about the subject.
Generally when I think prostate, the first thing that comes to mind is age (40/50s). Is it possible that a young person could have prostate problems, like infections?
I have read that masturbation is good for prostate health. Can the prostate ever be over used?
Is there any connection between the prostate and digestive disorders?
The odor started out fecal at around the age of 15-16. It slowly began to change into more of a garbage like smell. Now it's a morph between barf and mildew. Showers do not help and it gets worse in public. Some people don't notice it at all or have been around me long enough to build immunity to it. Most people have reactions such as coughing, hacking, sniffling, sneezing. It seems to be localized to those that are directly behind me or within 5-10ft of me. As their reactions get worse it begins to spread around the room very rapidly.
Just imagine going to church on sunday and sitting smack in the middle of everything. The women behind you are coughing and snorting loudly. You hear them saying things like, "somebody smells," followed by "It's really bad." Now you are a disturbance in God's house. So you pray that he will have mercy on you for at least the remainder of service...but no. Oh, and then the best part. You have to stand up, turn around, and shake their hands. It's obvious that they want to ignore you so they don't have to shake your hand. You put your hand out and now they are grimacing. After church your brain is fried from all the signals coming in and you just want to forget the day ever happened. That is life with PATM. My life.View Thread
