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.

hey we are a few already with muscle twitches. can you fall asleep with these twitches?

have you found relief?

i think this is due to high noradrenaline and is androgen related. have you tried testosterone? alpha blocker tizanidine?



Thank you xptriado.
Because I can sleep well from a beginning, as for me, as for sleep disorder, there are none though there are muscle convulsions.
Muscle weakness not to stop is terrible.
Because testosterone is the normal range by the blood test, I do not want to do the testosterone supplement.
I watched people who turned worse in this site.
I have not yet tried tizanidine. The medicine is scary.
In addition, it is the present conditions that the Japanese doctor does not have understanding to PFS at all than other countries.



Yes everything has potential to make you feel worse.

Japanese traditional medicine cant help you?

I will not try tizanidine i will try clonidine in very low doses, 25microgram one or twice a day. Its very low dosage i am having it compounded at pharmacy.

It will lower catecholamines so i expect muscle convulsion problems to improve and especially sleep.



@sin Are you better?
