Need some help! I'm currently 26 years old and have had ED problems since I was about 20 years old.at first the problems were minor, but scared me nontheless since I was having the problem so young. First time going to the doctor the doctor believed I had depression/anxiety, so he prescribed welbutrin which clearly didn't help ANYTHING. Afterwards he prescribed Viagra which worked great for years, I never had to take many becuase I was able to function alot without it but only sometimes had a hard time getting going. after a few years the viagra began to make my chest feel funny, so i switched to cialis which didn't really work and tried levitra which helped a little more than the cialis but still wasn't quite effective.... so after about 6 months of taking nothing I realized my problem growing worse..... my erections would not last AT ALL, it would last for a bout 4-5 minutes then die then come back for another minute or so if I was lucky. It progressively was getting worse than that, I could no longer get FULL erections, and I was lucky if I could masturbate to even achieve erection which rarely worked as well... trying desperately to figure out the problem I got back on Viagra. It is NO LONGER EFFECTIVE....it's become such a big problem I can barely ever get erections anymore and if I do, it's very soft and useless, and has become an incredible strain on my relationship!! I have tried everything but I did notice with the increase of my ED I was also having more and more neck pain and stiffness that began affecting my lower back! I had always thought maybe the ED problems started when I had a car accident when I was 18 or 19 because I had a lot of neck problems then but was treated by a chiropractor who said I have no curve in my neck and said the accident brought the pain out.... is it possible that my neck not having a curve, giving me pain, be the problem for my ED? Will I ever be able to function with a full HARD erection like I use to again? should I try HERBAL MEDICINES..... unfortunately I lost my medical coverage and cannot currently afford to see a doctor anymore..... is there any solution out there for my ED so I can save my relationship and my pride!? I feel like I have tried everything.... this is not a joke and I'm very serious about getting this fixed if possible!
Have you had an MRI done on your back? You might have a herniated disc or pinched nerve affecting your sexual organs especially if you have lower back pain. Many men don't associate back problems with ED but its more common then you think. I've tried decompression therapy with a Chiropractor and my pain has subsided significantly and my sexual function has improved. Not saying it is cured but its working better. Also been trying the iversion therapy at home. Its been helping me a great deal. Good luck and I will be praying for you!
