Took F for 17 yrs

What symptoms were you being treated for that they gave you methyl? Why did they think you may have an autoimmune disorder? Were they familiar with PFS and did you present yourself as a PFS sufferer?


#22

The Mayo Clinic neuro hoped to improve my walking ability/body coordination, which is severely impaired. The methyl did not help that but POSSIBLY helped my ED. The sexual plumbing has worked perfectly for 4.5 months, after being dead as a doornail for 2.5 years.

Like ALL the docs I’ve dealt with, they blew off my thoughts about PFS.


#23

are you saying that you have regained full potency from 4.5 month ago and it is still working, Man that is a good news congratz and hopefully all of your other symptoms will get better too. Enjoy.
one thing you think that methyl P, cured you from impotence ??


#24

Yep potency 100% restored, PERHAPS due to methyl, or luck, or healing over time.

Aloha, my neurologist suggested I write a DETAILED chronology to assist him, so I’m updating my old profile. According to him, I am a medical “zebra” case - extremely unusual in many respects so it is worth reading.

In summary, I’m a 50yo retired-for-now lawyer. I religiously took 1mg FIN daily from 1999-2014. I started losing the ability to sleep in June 2014 and had no clue it was related to FIN. By Dec I had stopped sleeping ENTIRELY and discontinued FIN. 10 days later post-finasteride exploded my brain!

The fantastic news is that I VERY FORTUNATELY recovered 100% from total loss of libido (after 2 years), total physical impotence (2.5 years), frightening delusions (2 months), total loss of emotionality/compassion/feelings (6 months), breast development (2 months), intense penis pain (1 month), and - oddly - my facial hair 100% stopped growing for 4 months and then resumed normal growth!

The bad news is my sleep remains profoundly dysfunctional. I very rarely reach unconsciousness and just “heavy rest” 4 hours at night - with Balsomra sleeping pill - and take “heavy rest” naps 1-2 times randomly.

SO MY ADVICE IS:

- DON’T TRY TO COMMIT SUICIDE BECAUSE YOU JUST MIGHT RECOVER LIKE ME

  • GET A PRESCRIPTION FOR BELSOMRA FOR SLEEP DYSFUNCTION

OR TRY BOTH remeron/nortryptilin, which 100% solved my sleep dysfunction from April 2015-Dec. 2016; and inexplicably STOPPED working.

so you think its not curable in the next 1000 years ? sounds optimistic…


#32

and do you mean with skipping doses in 2014 taking it every other day ? or really skipped it a few days in usage ?
