Orgasm triggers low back pain
I've had lower back problems for more than 20 years, starting when I was 17, when I injured my back on the job and was told I had DDD. Problems were were mostly fixed by a surgery at 21 that fused L4 and L5/S1 lumbar vertebrae. About 3 years ago I reinjured my back while exercising but a year ago this September after 2 years of misery received an injection in my sacroiliac joint that pretty much took care of the bad pain. However, the last month or so I have noticed that shortly after I have an orgasm (through masturbation--no acrobatics involved, lol) my pain gets very bad again in the same areas for several days to a week or longer at a time--radiating down legs. Eventually it gets better, but the obvious answer would be "don't have an orgasm if it makes your pain worse" but I have prostate issues that require me to ejaculate regularly or have problems in that area. Last night I had an orgasm and I could hardly get any sleep due to pain, which still is very bad 24 hours later. I'm not clear on why an orgasm would kick off back pain, but maybe some nerves are being aggravated? Any thoughts/suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks!
