Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I have a relatively weak erection (estimate 50-60% of maximum erection potential) and tend to have a weak orgasm with only a moderate amount of ejaculate (even after 2-4 weeks of abstinence). I am in excellent cardiovascular health exercising 3-4 days a week on an elliptical, achieving sustained exercise heart rate in 70%-90% of maximum range. My resting heart rate is 50-55 beats per minute, my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are well controlled with exercise and zocor. My blood pressure is well controlled by Hyzaar 100/25. I have never tried medications such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra for this problem. Perhaps they would help, but I feel the main reasons for my problems are my age (64) and the side effects of the combinations of drugs I take. Also, last year I had my testosterone level checked it was 399 (normal range 400-1200).Perhaps this is also part of my problem?? Thank you for any advice.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Tickle in throat about even with jawline. I feel like I could put my finger on it. Only tickles in 1 spot. Causes a coughing spasm so bad that people think I am choking. Sometimes tickle happens when I swallow causing the same coughing spasm. Sometimes I wheeze after one of the choking fits, and that lasts about 1/2 of an hour. Usually sucking on a piece of hard candy ends the coughing for awhile. I have been doing this for about 7 months. Swallow test performed and it is normal,
