May I ask, did your penis shrivel up and shrink while you were relapsing and/or binging relapsing?
Im not sure how to answer that. But no I havent had experienced any shrivel or shrink - but I never suffered from PIED etc
Oooh I see. Has anyone else here suffered a shrunken/shriveled dick from binging on porn?
I'm out about 450 days and the headaches and vision problems are finally really fading. I had every problem documented on Nofap. The social anxiety was the worst. When I was young I was in a choir and sang solo. I couldn't even sing in my car without crying for no good reason. Last week I finally regained my ability to sing a full song without getting irrationally choked up.
The headaches have receded to the point where I just have this weird heat around my eyes and cheeks. It's super annoying. Your posts have helped me greatly. It was helpful to know I wasn't the only extreme case.
Things that helped me. Supplements, all of them. 4 hours of Tai Chi a week. Also other martial Arts. Specifically Doce Pares Eskrima (anything with flow drills seems good). I never really used to understand what a flow state was. Getting social and joining a social club helped. And most recently the Chaplin of that club who is believe it or not a drag queen introduced me to Buddhism.
Meditation is huge. It makes you powerful over your own dwelling. Getting out of your own head is one of the big things.
I’m having this right now it’s got me worried it’s like s moving pulse/pressure it’ll be right temple back of head eyebrow top of head left side. It just moves around I’ll feel great for like 30 minutes then it’ll come back. Most of the time it’s dull just there making me paranoid sometimes it’ll zap for like a split second not that painful but like alittle zap maybe once a day. I’m on day 45 but I’ve had wet dreams a couple times the most recent being day 32 or 32. I have heard about kindling before with addictions and I have a theory that wet dreams have the same affect since it is an orgasm with hits your with dopamine I’ve felt it. Damn with all this nofap anxiety these feelings got me so paranoid.
How are you progressing now? Im at 7 months - can you talk about the social anxiety.. did it completely go for you? Mine has improved but it is still there along with these head sensations - It's been so long with this wierd anxiety and sensations (started when I started nofap) that I can't even imagine life without it now.
Does the anxiety fully go? When did this happen for you?
My anxiety is mostly gone. But it took forever. It goes away slowly so be patient. Mine really started to subside once I started lifting again.
I agree with this I feel as if i have a vast vocabulary and can express myself very well, but when my brain is resetting i fell sort of dull. Don't worry it will all come back to you!
Yoo brother how's your reboot so far?
At what day you say " this thing is finally working for good."
Great job on the 450 days out. I am almost 365 no MO. I have been taking supplements, zinc and Vitamin D mostly. I do want to get into Tai Chi as well. I had wreckless withdrawl symptoms in the first six seven months. The PAWS still do come around though. If I actually put myself on a better sleep schedule I would be doing better.
You still going monk mode for another year then....
No monk mode anymore. Just having sex with the wife. But completely off PMO.
I'd say at about 18 months. I think I'm on a two year recovery.
Was that after or later on during your reboot? Did you reboot ?
Pressure in my forehead is my no 1 problem. I ve tried all but have not found a solution to this yet. Few things I have noticed. It goes away if you ejaculate. Any ejaculation. sex, wet dreams. I usually start getting head pressure once i reach around 70 days and it gets intense after 110 115 days of semen retention. My work on learning and computer has been seriously hindered by this problem. Whenever i sit to do some intellectual work, the pressure gets almost unbearable (at times). Once I was around day 150 when this became so unbearable that I had to force myself to ejaculate though I had no desire to. Currently I am around four months in and I know if I am to make it through, i will have to find a solution.
Thank you for creating this discussion and sharing the experience. I am going through this and never suspected it could be withdrawl symptoms. I was too dogmatic in believing, i was not transmuting the sexual energy properly. It gives me hope to just come here and read this thread when iam going through the pain. I am gonna give this time and see if it recedes and continue on my transmutative practice too.
So let me summarize many guys get this weird headaches which I too have and many have advised to take supplements like vitamin b2 and mangnesium
Anyone with some rock hard solution? As it's a major problem for almost all nofappers I think it's present along with brain fog too
Unfortunately the solution is to hang in there and do you best at stress management. I believe stress is the cause of most of these symptoms, especially all the tension related ones in this post. It is extremely stressful to quit an addiction to both the body and mind. We need to give ourselves time to adjust. In the meantime a good stress reduction plan is probably to best way to at least reduce some of these symptoms
I want to be clear my weird brain pressure isn't the same as a headache exactly.
Press your index finger gently on the the back of your hand, it feels like this feeling of pressure is constantly pulsing in my brain near the front. I wouldn't say its painful per say, more annoying and worrying.
Yes. These are tension type headaches. They do go away. They can feel like wave sensations in your brain. You can also get ocular pressure in my experience too from this.
I wouldn't describe these headaches as painful just a nuisance and a drain.
