Title: Pain Medication Could Produce Some Male Organ Pain

Pain Medication Could Produce Some Male Organ Pain
By John Dugan
  • Its common knowledge that any medication may
    have some unintended side effects, depending on
    many factors dosage, frequency of use,
    metabolism variation, age, etc. Some people use
    the medication gabapentin, which is prescribed
    for a number of purposes, including diabetic
    nerve pain and epilepsy. Ironically, in some
    cases, a man using this pain medication may
    actually experience male organ pain - and there
    can be other issues which affect his member
    health as well.
  • As mentioned, gabapentin is often used in
    treating nerve damage and the resulting pain or
    numbness. This is often an issue in diabetes, but
    can also be due to other causes of neural damage.
    The medication is an anticonvulsant, meaning that
    is can be helpful in managing epilepsy. Doctors
    also prescribe it for other conditions, such as
    restless leg syndrome, hot flashes, migraines and
Male organ pain
  • Some men who have used gabapentin reported
    that it can produce male organ pain, in some
    cases fairly significant. The pain can range from
    a persistent low level throb to sensations of
    sharp, burning pain. At least one man has
    reported that the burning sensation requires the
    application of a cloth soaked in cold water
    several times a day.
  • Exactly why the gabapentin is sometimes
    associated with male organ pain is unclear. The
    good news is that, in addition to being a fairly
    rare side effect, it tends to resolve naturally
    within about a month. Men who do experience this
    side effect from taking the medication should
    consult with their doctors to determine if a
    different medication should be prescribed or if
    there are additional medications that may be
    useful in treating the male organ pain. For
    example, some doctors find that a topical numbing
    crème can effectively reduce the pain.
Other male organ issues
  • There are several other manhood-based issues
    beyond pain that are sometimes associated with
    use of gabapentin. Earlier, it was mentioned that
    gabapentin is sometimes prescribed in cases of
    priapism. Priapism is a situation in which the
    member becomes engorged for an abnormally long
    time typically four hours or more and cannot
    return to its flaccid state. This can lead to
    long-term nerve and tissue damage in the member.
  • Gabapentin is used in treating priapism
    because it has a de-tumescent capability. But
    that means that some men not suffering from
    priapism may find that it creates tumescence
    dysfunction situation. This may prevent them from
    becoming firm or may decrease the firmness of
    their tumescence.
  • In other cases, men on this medication report
    they are able to achieve tumescence but that they
    have difficulty achieving seed release.
  • Finally, some men report that their manhood
    takes on a swollen appearance at times while
    using gabapentin. This may also be accompanied by
    another form of male organ pain, tenderness in
    the swollen area.

  • Men who feel that gabapentin is causing
    unwanted side effects should discuss alternative
    possible medications with their physician. Many
    medications have side effects, and often
    medications that treat the same issue may have
    similar side effects however, it may be
    worthwhile to explore different options to find
    the one which works best, as every individual
    reacts differently to any medication.

  • Male organ pain, whether from a medication or
    another source, is not something men enjoy
    dealing with. For everyday male organ pain,
    regular use of a top drawer male organ health
    crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man
    Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for
    skin) can strengthen the manhood and ease typical
    soreness. A crème with potent moisturizing
    capabilities is best at this, so select one that
    includes both a high-end emollient (such as Shea
    butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin
    E). It also is beneficial to find a crème that
    contains L-arginine, an amino acid that is part
    of the process by which male organ blood vessels
    are kept open and receptive to vital increased
    blood flow.
