I’m sorry. I cannot speak English.
It is machine-translated.
I stopped it immediately in around one week after I took fin because erection became weak.
A very strong morning shower happened ten days later.
I was pleased very much then.
Furthermore, it became the ED again when I did it for around one week.
Muscle twitch began at that time in a leg and one, and twitch came to be generated with a whole body soon.
The muscle of the whole body softened after it became PFS.
I believed that it was cured and continued a muscular workout hard.
It was slightly soft, but only the upper body was enlarged by training.
However, I suddenly got thinner from (from PFS approximately two years later) around two months ago.
It is painful to walk now and is hot.
The body which I strengthened by boxing and a gym more than ten years narrowed softly in sequence.
The breathing is much harder, too.
Muscle Twitch and Muscle Wastage and Muscle Weakness, it is dyspnea more.
A symptom such as the ALS totally progresses.
Can you not suppress even the symptom of the muscle?
As well as erection, I have developed into a problem whether could live now.
Please advise it. Yes, please.
