Hi, I’m a 34 year old Italian guy.
I am a father I have a child of 2 and a half years.
I started taking finasteride from January 2014 to interrupt in May 2019.
Initially I took finasteride divided by 6 then after 8 months divided by 8 and then by the second year 0.5 every 2 days.
I took numerous breaks, even very long ones, after the second year, 5 months.
Then I always started again in small doses 0.5 every 2 days.
I have always suffered from both bruxism and cervical injuries, which caused a bad accident 7 years ago with my back.In the last year of 2018, since I was not using the bite, my dentist, by means of a check, tells me that I should take it because my teeth were wearing out and they brought me a malocclusion problem.
So I buy a bite in the pharmacy but this bite brought up to May 2019 made me even worse because at some point my ears became inflamed especially on the left, thus causing problems with ringing and ear pain as if it were muffled especially in left.
In the meantime I stopped with finasteride in May because I didn’t want to be a slave to take a drug forever.
The pain in the neck and shoulders according to the dentist and orthopedist may be due to the mouth and bruxism.
I made a dent at the dentist in September. The teeth do not hurt me anymore but the ear is always buzzing and as if it were inflamed.
At the same time I joined swimming for a week and I have back therapy.
I can swim for 40 minutes or walk for an hour without particular effort.
Sexually I have no sides I can stay in bed with my wife and do self-eroticism even twice a day.
But I feel worried because I read that finasteride can cause muscle and ear problems.
In the month of August I went on vacation for 20 days at the beach and it seemed to me to be better both with my ear and my neck.
Monday I will go to a neurologist for a visit and then later to an otorino.
In your opinion, finasteride can be the cause of this discomfort.?
Thank for the support and sorry for my English.
