  • A tough subject for men

    Hi guys

    My MS has given me the awful gift of erectile disfunction. I rise to the occasion for literally two mins and then everything goes soft. With no mission of regaining it again.

    I have tried viagra it did not help in anyway.

    Any other guys suffer the same affliction?

    Ah, that problem. Not fun. This podcast just came out from Barry Singer MD, Director of The MS Center for Innovations in Care. He interviewed a couple experts in this department. Give it a listen! -D

      Diet has a bit to do with it, and while the blue pill did very little to help me, eating a handful of blueberries on my breakfast cereal every morning helps a bunch! Mechanical aids can help you maintain an erection, after getting it, place the elastic band around the base of the penis to keep the blood in!

        I've tried cialis with success. But it's expensive and my benefits won't cover. My neuro told me it's not related to ms, but it seems very common.
