Fibromyalgia information regarding men is even rarer than it is regarding women, but more cases of fibromyalgia-related impotence are being reported. Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction, can result from fibromyalgia symptoms such as a lack of sleep, reduced sex drive, and pain all over the body (including the genitals.) In male fibromyalgia patients, the sexual side effects of all these symptoms becomes apparent quicker.
One effective and cheap treatment for erectile dysfunction is exercise, but among fibromyalgia patients who suffer from pain and touch sensitivity, exercise proves difficult. But these patients should keep in mind that a brisk walk can be the starting point to recovery. Don’t kill yourself with running or heavy weights. Start small and build.
Also, if the stress of fibromyalgia is playing with both your heads, then by all means consider talking to a reputable therapist. And keep in mind that medications exist to help fight erectile dysfunction. Speak to your doctor. That’s what he or she is there for—to help with both physical and emotional issues.
Sexual health is a vital and important part of life. With a little effort, an open mind, and humor, erectile dysfunction can be dealt with without embarrassment or fear.
