    Hi there,

    I've been an excessive masturbator for 14 years (now im 26), and maybe 6-7 years ive been living with physical weakness, anxiety/panic attacks, and heart palpitations. I've been reading alot whats the side effects of masturbation, and the nervous system is affected also. When you get excited, you release hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, and they boost you stress and after ejaculation youre body goes into relax mode. But every day masturbation cause sympathetic nerv. system (SNS) to be dominant all the time and put your body to stress mode - flight or fight. Ive experienced alot of the symptoms of Flight or fight mode, like : irritability of smallest things, nervous all the time, shaking feeling, and the most scary, Heart Palpitations. When im very stressful, im shaking and i can't even climbing stairs or do some work. I also feel some fear, chest tightness, arrhythmia, skipping beats or heart flutter. When im calm ( NO STRESS), i can do climbing stairs or walking, even to be active all day and to feel great.Also, I'm getting them on smallest stress and arguing with somebody, and im getting very very excited and feel shaky with pounding heart. I went to EKG and some treadmill testing. I've walked 7min of 9min and i started to have pounding heart and feeling fear inside me, and i stopped.They told me i have nothing with me heart, and to go to psychiatrist. I've told about masturbation side effects, they didn't want it to hear me. I feel very weak on mentally and physically and smallest things affect me. I tried noFap for month, i felt very positive things and i quitted Porn /not going back, but these things are still here. I had sex with my wife 4 times in 5 days, and again heart palpitations are here. During noFap longest streak (25 days) i got my energy little back, no brain fog, no big heart palps, and felt calm. Any connections or experience with this?
    Thanks for any advice guys.

    Hi nyxdrive,

    I am 28 and started NoFap from 2017 but I still cannot completely quit it.The longest streak was 45days

    I got heart palpitation about a month after I start quitting PMO and it's been 2 years now.
    My situation is that I can feel the heart beat strongly after meal and when I lay on bed.

    I also went to see doctor - blood test, ECG and thyroid test was all negative.

    May I know whether your heart palpitation happened during laying on bed or after meal also ?

    Could be a mild form of craving of withdrawal syndrome. Shouldn't be too much of a bother if the doctor couldn't find anything.

    Thanks Jerry,

    I worry about it because it's been over 2 years and recently I also did a holter (24 hours ECG) and doctor said the result is normal.
    I am thinking whether PMO hurt my nerve or cardiovascular system so that I suffer from heart palpitation for such long time.

    I doubt PMO has the ability bud. The reason I say that is because I was a very heavy PMO'er also . I never had any such issues. Of course, we are different people so you may have a different issue. But it could also be psychosomatic? I don't know. If a doctor says your fine, chances are you're fine. If multiple doctors say your're fine, then you should more than likely be fine.

    Sorry, wish I could be more helpful.

    Hey Guys,

    Nix, In my experience I've had some heart tachycardia or arrhythmia, this was because of anxiety not because of PMO'ing.

    In my case it could happen anywhere, on work, in my house, with my friends, whenever i had an anxiety attack, i could even hear the pounding inside my head man...

    I think everything could be in your head if you been already checked, what worked for me I've been practicing martial arts and going every week to therapy, its been a rough months for me, and i still get anxiety for various reasons. However im starting to be self aware of the things that trigger my anxiety and tachycardia, and its been getting better man. Once you realized that it is more likely that the things you are afraid are not going to happen or are not real, you get almost an immediate relief.

    It's takes some time to be self-conscious of the reasons that could be triggering this heart issue, like being afraid of confrontation, arguments, talking to people, of you not enough to please your wife, not being a good parent, financial issues...

    There are still thing you could try, dont lose hope, there are a lot of people going through these type of things, but eventually it will work out. Trust me.

    Hi There,
    Yes, after a meal i can notice palpitations and it's very hard to do any work, or climbing stairs. The feeling is very bad. But, i can't understand some things. I started to take ashwaganda and Stress Support Supplements for couple of months. I also limit ejaculation , maybe 5-6- max times at month.I notice, they are weeks with no heart palps, my energy levels are ok, no brain fog, but today, and 2 days ago i have awful palps and. What's the connection. I feel big anxiety from time to time.

    I had rough period of stress... ( 6-8 years). It was let say 80% of time all that years with stress, and stress relief - masturbation. I had very big stress. Now, i don't have those things ( i have small/normal stress). But i can feel chest titghness, cant feel my lungs with full breath, im always thinking something bad gonna happened and the heart palptitions are here as best friend. Skipped beats, flutter, name it. I'm tired...From nowhere something will trigger inside me something, and they are here.

    This will help you a lot, watch this and say goodbye to urges forever

    https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/if-youre-struggling.232140/

    But however urges sometimes can attack even if you are focused on something else, when i got rid of those 1% foods which increases urges and started enjoying 99% other beautiful foods it became so much easyer for me ^_^

    Thank Jerry
    I have seen a second cardiologist and have Echocardiogram and blood test done yesterday
    and nothing was found. Doctor said I have a healthy heart so I try to leave the symptoms alone.

    Thanks nyxDrive,

    I have a hypothesis that would like to share with you. I strongly agree with you that PMO damage our nerve system, which I think it make our nerve more sensitive than other people, so that's why we feel palpitation, skipped beats,premature Heart Beats.

    since we have PMO for long years and our body is weaker than other healthy people. Thus the body want to protect us from getting hurt from our environment by raising the vigilance ,which make our nerve more sensitive. this is the same situation like our body hair will raise to reduce heat loss when we get into a very cold environment.

    Do you still have frequent sex with your wife now?
    I suggest, if possible,you may reduce the frequency because masturbation and sex both would make our body weaker especially we all suffer from the damage of PMO for many years.

    Your ECG and treadmill result are normal right? If yes, I guess our heart is still okay and the problem is our nerve system.
    I also have my Echocardiogram, holter, ECG and blood test done and all the results are normal.
    So maybe we try to keep our streak as long as we can to let our body and nerve to recover from PMO

    Hello, I am getting palpitations since 2 yrs. Suddenly it started at night. I went to doctor next day, and he did blood test, ecg, chest x ray , tsh test, cholestrol, liver. Every thing was normal except vitamin b12 was 175 and vitamin d3 was 13. both were low. He gave me medicines for 2 months, but there was no improvement in palpitations and weakness. I feel lot of weakness in my body still now. I use to masturbate 6x a day since 2012 and now I am paying for it. Can anyone please tell me why I am having these.

    I have the following problems.
    1. My rest heart beat is 100-105 and walking heart beat is 125-135 bpm. Everytime I lie on bed, I have having a very hard time to sleep. The force of such hard beating of heart make my sleep so miserable. I can feel in throughtout my head and body.
    2. I feel a lot of weakness, my hand and leg shakes while lifting even 1 kg of thing.

    Why this is happening to me. Does it due to all the sins. Sometimes I tried to stop masturbation for 2 - 3 days, I feel a little good, but again after doing , things get worst.

    I have also consulted haemopathic doctor, he gave me essentia aurea, passifiya and paintox and anxiety relief tablets which I have to eat 2* twice a day. I feel quite better that I was 1yr ago, bcoz 1 yr ago, my energy was very very low. I had difficuly in breathing which I though was due to D3 deficiency, I also eat a zincovit tablet per day. Its a multivitamin.
    But I am not able to return in my good old shape. Please tell me what has happened to me. why my heart beat soooo hhard and fast. What is trigeeting it. Can I have other deficiencies or toxicity of any element or are all these due to anxiety and masturbation which afftected my nervours system.
    Please help.
