Thanks for the response. I'm on a depression med, no erection meds yet. Doctor thinks it's all psychological due to my age. Something just seems off about my issue, though. Even though it went down quickly, I woke up with morning wood this morning. Doppler ultrasound results came back normal. Doctor says my penis is healthy with good blood flow, so that's not the issue. I'm just hoping this isn't something nerve related. I'm able to get an erection through stimulation/some morning wood, but I'm not sure if that necessarily eliminates the possiblity of penile nerve damage.
low test at your young age? or the depression can def do it---i am 55 and just starting to deal with it thanks to heart meds
Had my testosterone checked and the results didn't indicate a concern. Doppler ultrasound came back... doc says my blood flow looks great and there was no sign of venous leak. Going on 3 and a half months now with problems... I'm getting real worried and that's not helping this whole issue.
No. I was on a beta blocker for my migraines for the past 6 years... Doctor pulled me off those at the beginning of this year but he doesn't think that's the issue since I was on such a low dose and I never experienced a single side effect. With the medication, I'm also getting talk therapy. I've always had performance anxiety in sexual situations so he's trying to help me through that, assuming that's making the issue worse.
