Conditions with symptom: 'weakness'
Is masterbating bad for you because i have heard that it can cause weakness of memory and bladder as well as lower back problems. Is this true as i kind of do it a lot but would like to stop if it is bad for me Thanks
I masturbate a lot, usually 2-3 times a day. I've had lower back pain for a while now. My semen sometimes has a yellow tint as well, and i don't seem to produce much, although this could be down to me doing it alot. Im 16 as well, and i hit puberty fairly late, if that means anything.
No and no. There is no longer any doubt among doctors and therapists that the supposed negative effects of masturbation are false. It is a perfectly normal and healthy form of sexual expression. Ninety-five percent of men begin to masturbate at puberty, and many continue to do so throughout life without negative consequences. Masturbation only becomes a problem if it becomes a substitute for other forms of sexual activity. It is important however to masturbate in a way that will help you learn how to control ejaculation so that when you do have a partner premature ejaculation will not be an issue.
Iv had 2 children one naturally and one c section. Since having my second child im suffering awfully with bladder weakness. Im too worried to drink too much as I dont feel it when I wee. Please help?
When on my period and using tampons I notice I am often damp down below. Upon checking I'm not leaking blood but clear fluid. I'm certain it's not wee though. I have had two children by natural birth and suffer bladder weakness to a small degree but I'm sure the liquid leak is not wee. Is it possible to produce normal discharge whilst having a period?
I am 87 years and recently had a Cortisone injection for a painful shoulder and about a week after the injection I started to feel unwell with palpitations,weakness in my legs,and depression. My Doctor carried out various tests and the blood test revealed high blood sugar levels. Could this be associated with the Cortisone and if so will things return to normal in time ? I am of course worried about this and would appreciate your advice. Bob.
I am a 59 year old woman and have suffered with pain in the hands, wrists, shoulders and hips for a number of years.Losing weight due to dieting has certainly helped, especially with hip pain when driving. Recently though I have started to suffer very severe lower back pain when lying down. I have taken Volterol but nothing touches it and I can only get to sllep if I am supported by about 4 pillows. Strangely I don't get the pain when up and about all day. I have always had a weakness in my lower back, probably due to nursing in the days before hoists. Is this the progression of osteoarthritis or have I hurt my back? Are there any efective treatments or do I just have to live with it?

Hi, Im 31 and have just had a bone density scan due to being on the depo for 5yrs. I have started to get a constant ache in my hips, which sometimes goes down my legs and my right hip cracks. I was in a lot of pain with my left hip a few week ago and the doctor told me I had sprained it. I can only describe it as if the bone is the problem and not the leg, a sharp pain.
Hi My doctor thinks I might have fibromyaliga but another doctor thinks it could be parkinsons. As symptoms are very close together could it be parkinsons? list of symptoms weakness down left side tremors in right side temors in legs at night time headaches difficulty with finding words when speaking memory loss widespread muscle pain unable to sleep I had been on lyrica and amitriptyline for a while they gave some relief but quickly it ended. I have now been taken off all meds and symptoms have flared back up fulln time. Any help would be great? Thanks Anna

I am a 55 year old, slim, fit and healthy on no medication. I have hot flushes but otherwise I can cope with the menopause. my pelvic floor has improved from weakness after 5 years of kegels, about 50 a day and I use vaginal weights. No leaks except sometimes after alcohol. My problem is that if I do not wear panties in bed when I wake there is often a brown edged clear stain in my vaginal area. I do not awake wet or smelly and the stain does not smell either. I do sweat but not just in this area. I am sexually active but it doesn't happen just on those nights. Am I leaking? Vaginal discharge not evident in the day. Please suggest? If I wear a pad or pants in bed I see nothing on it but it is a bit damp, I think sweat. No pads worn as a rule.
may i ask where you got the vaginal weights please?
My weights were purchased in Boots called Aquaflex.
I've had varicocele for 8 years.Then Unfortunately I met a so- called physician who deteriorated my illness(he prescribed 22 hormone(testestrone) weekly as he thought it may be for my impotence at the age of 22(It caused too many wet dreams/2 or 3 times weekly).Sometimes I tried to stop seminal effusion but it caused some infection in my sperm and I had some drugs to fix it(cotrimaxazole) Later(when I was 33) an urologist dignosed Varicocele and operated me.(semen exam was good at that age too).But for many reasons I could not marry till 46 .In recent months I am weaker in erectile and sometimes I lose small spermlike fluid when I sit on a chair for a long time. Is this prostate? or sexual weakness?(My prostate was ok at 33)Please if you can give me better direction or any direct email let me know. Yours AS

I am 18 and have been battling with obsessive grooming which consists of pore and spot squeezing and plucking hairs on my face,chest, shoulders, underarms and legs. I line up any hairs or blackheads on the edges of the mirror (disgusting I know) and I tend to do it more when I'm stressed. I started doing this at 13 and completely understand that what I am doing makes any spots I have worse and reddens my skin, but I can't seem to stop. I have thrown away countless magnifying mirrors and even tried to smash them because I feel so drawn to them. I feel really helpless now and am angry at myself for not being able to control this. I am a medical student yet I can't bear to go to my GP or even tell my mother. Today I had a moment of weakness and wasted an hour squeezing my face, afterwards I felt awful and googled it to see if anyone did the same. Some people had mentioned OCD which is why I'm here. I was just wondering if this is a real problem, if anyone else has it and if i should seek some help over it. Thanks.
I have exactly the same thing! I just posted my question here (under Holly) even the lining them up on the mirror! I'm 17 and it's absolutely awful and revolting, I know! I really wouldn't wish it on ANYBODY but feels nice to know that i'm not the only one. I'm worse with the plucking - the amount of tweezers and needles and scissors that I've snapped and thrown out but I always find a way.. It's destroying me.
