Question: Mastrubation and Joint pain problem

 vasan80in - Fri Jan 26, 2007 10:27 am

1. Age=26,
2. Sex=Male
3. Checked for Arthirtis and other stuff no such problems
4. No
5. No major
6. Pain releiver for joing pain.

Everytime after mastrubation, in 2-3 days I get Joint pains. I am very sure I get joint pains only after 2-3 days of mastrubation and it is because of mastrubation. Pain is some time very severe. Joint with pains get very hot and swelling.

I have been mastrubating for past 10 years. 1-2 time a week. Could some one suggest me a reason for this joint pains.

User avatar Hello,

To my knowledge there is no direct relation between masturbation and joint pain, although it may cause generalized sense of fatigue and weakness especially if done frequently.

I have searched for a connection between masturbation or over masturbation and joint pain. I could not find any.

It would be helpful if you can provide us with more details about the history of this joint pain like which joints are affected, how long they stay, and which kind of investigations have been done to search for a cause.

Best regards.
