Heart palpitations and insomnia after use...
  • pnomanpnoman

    I'm 40 years old. I've been experiencing heart palpitations after my sessions, which in turn cause insomnia. I guess it can only be described as a feeling of anxiety. This only has happened to me a couple times in my life, but more recently it happens almost every night after a session.

    I've noticed that there are also feelings that accompany these events that can be described as guilt. I really enjoy my sessions, and have been getting some awesome reactions from the Aneros.

    Here's what normally happens:
    I have a session where I enema first, then prelube with 3-5ml of Probe Thick and Rich. I coat whatever Aneros I decide to use (I normally use more than 1 per session). I normally don't ejaculate during the course of a session, so the end of my session will be dictated by either being tiread or having a problem where the Aneros keeps popping out of my ass (I posted a few times on another thread titled "looseness"). Most sessions last about 2 hours. I then wipe my ass of any remaining lube, wash all of the Aneros toys with antibacterial soap and put everything away.

    If I'm feeing especially horny (about 80% of the time!) I'll jerk off to some internet porn. My masturbation sessions normally last about 1 hour. After I cum, I clean up and head to bed.

    After I'm in bed, I'll notice that my heart is beating rather hard or quickly. Sometimes it's a very strong heartbeat or it's a rapid heart beat. If I'm lucky enough to have fallen asleep within minutes of hitting the pillow, I'll be awakened after about 20-30 minutes of sleep. If I haven't fallen asleep, the sensation will keep me awake. These heartbeats have been lasting about 2 hours.

    My mind will start racing as well...Am I hurting myself? What if my choice of lube is being absorbed by my body and causing this? Am I going to need a diaper in 10 years? Are the feelings of pleasure really worth this? What if I'm damaging my insides? What if I have to go to the emergency room- would I have to tell them of my embarrassing activities?

    The questions go on and on. I think i've done enough research on here to educate myself, but there's always that unsure feeling of how many people here really know what they are talking about.

    If you have had anything similar happen to you (hearbeats/anxiety/guilt) I would like to know. It would be nice to know that I'm not crazy or that something isn't wrong with me physically.

    TIA for your replies...

    Do you have a problem with your blood pressure? A few years ago, I had a problem with anxiety, palpitations, insomnia, skin crawling the works. Come to find out, I had changed to a less expensive blood pressure medication, and it wasn't working well. When I switched back to something a little more expensive, it went away.

    Hey pnoman,

    sorry to hear about the tough symptoms. Sounds like you're coming down on yourself, pretty hard.

    Hey guy, being able to hold together an m-b or j/o session for a whole hour rates a solid GOLD STAR in my book! Well done bud! :envious: :!: :!:

    My only palpitations happened when my Urologist put me on an MAOI to arrest an issue with early-ejac. It reacted with my alfa-blocker and Viagra and I'd wake up sometimes skipping a few heartbeats. Scary... ticker malfunctions are good reason to rethink one's priorities. As Badger suggests, a hard look at all/any meds is a good idea.

    Diapers: I'm nearly twice you age, have far less tissue resilience and am doing much the same as you do. My recent dildo play (I'm nube to this craft) taught me (no damage though) that I've got some limitations. Butt, "downsizing" should still provide some of the pleasures, albeit from smaller tools. With a 6f tx 180lb bod, I've not found anything in the Aneros line that might do permanent damage. Of course YMMV and you've got to set your own boundaries. Same old story -- relax, go slowly and savor. If there's nothing to savor, pick another path. Keep yourself in control.

    ER: Story-- my wife spent some of her early years as an ER nurse (large metro hospital)--one of her more challenging cases was helping the doc remove a Coca-cola bottle (old 6.5 oz bottle) from some guy's ass.

    My own ER visit came after injecting my penis with a new batch of Trimix. At the 4+30 point I made my first trip to the ER. Figured I was the first guy stupid enuf ever to do this. I asked--they get about 3 pripism's a month. While these folks don't like caring for self-inflicted wounds, it's part of the health-care business.

    Sharing: Get with someone who's good at keeping confidences. Suggest, that on your next Uro visit (annual since you're over 40), and before the DRE, take a deep breath and inform your Uro that you are a regular Aneros user, ask for his/her opinion and any tips. Keeping your med-team informed as to your activities (like Scuba, Tennis, Power-lifting, Skydiving, Aneros massage, etc.) can help them help you. My Uro has never offered an opinion but knows that I get some bph help from the practice and that I enjoy the pleasures and orgasms. He also tells me that he sees no damage from what I'm doing -- I asked.

    Lube: I absorb lube and many aren't for me. Am always on the lookout for the most benign stuff that works well. While my mainstays are shea, coconut and Slippery Stuff. I'm now considering Flax despite the frequency of making the stuff. Suggest you make a change and see if that helps. If not, make another change.

    Take care pnoman and tackle those issues.

    Regards and blessings

    Badger - I dont' take any medications.

    Rook - Thanks for the reply. I've heard of the Coke bottle thing before. They have to drill a small hole into the glass to break the vacuum, !right? I'm not confident enough to tell my doctor yet...I'll have to hold out on that one for a while. My doctor is a family friend and I know there's dr/patient confidentiality, but he plays golf with my Uncle, who knows what he''ll say when he's drunk!

    As far as lube, you mentioned that you 'cut' the unrefined shea with coconut. Can you elaborate on this? What brand/ what kind of coconut, and what does it mean to 'cut' it? I've got the AAA Shea from Amazon, but would like to try your recipe!

    I use alv's lube formula. Check out: -- http://www.aneros.com/forum/f5/unrefined-shea-butter-how-much-12757/ -- Posts from #120 thru #131 cover the discussion.

    Somewhere in that there's a video of a gal blending shea & coconut oil to make a cosmetic. Her formula is 1:3 where as alv's is 1:2.

    somewhere above 200deg. F is where the two oils mate up. that temperature is also enough to pasteurize it. -- enjoy

    I also have experienced heart palpitations and Insomnia after a session. Insomnia is a cruel affliction in my case caused by stress of my job over many years. However, now I have taken early retirement I am getting things under control.

    In my experience, if you have a number of session in quick succession without a Traditional O the after shocks build up to a level that you cannot sleep. The answer is to have a Traditional masturbation. I have a number of rules which seem to work, for me:

    Never commence a session after 8pm
    If you are having an evening session complete the session by 9pm
    after 3 session on concentrative days without traditional O complete the session with a traditional masturbation

    I did try having a session earlier in the evening, around 6PM. It was a decent session, and I ended it at 9PM. Eventually went to bed around 2AM and was able to sleep.

    Calmer- I think you're on to something when you mention that there is a build up of energy after a session. I'm going to try earlier sessions when I can and see what happens...

    Hello Pnoman, :)

    I don't get heart palpitations that I am aware of. But I generally make it a rule not to have Aneros sessions late at night, as they seem to energize me and keep me awake past my bed time. So as far as the insomnia goes, it's likely just a matter of better planning like you did yesterday.

    Hey,

    I know this thread is quite old already.. But I wanted to reply to it anyways.. Yes, The aneros sessions energize me a lot and it's impossible to fall asleep after the session.. I think these sessions make you really sensitive because we are penetrating the central nervous system. The fears/panic attacks or other psychological effects must result of it also..

    The Chinese Taoism and Qi Gong have many remedies for this.

    The chi (energy) from male genital area are Yan. The energy from female genital area are Yin. To have sex with a female is the best way to neutralize the wandering Yan energy. If you know how to do Tantric sex, it's better

    The energy from male head region are yin. So you can also draw the energy down from your head to circulate in your meridian channels.

    Your Dan Tian cauldron (navel chakra) can absorb lots of energy. At end of session, it's always good idea to store extra energy into Dan Tian.

    The earth is a huge Yin. You can also drive the extra energy through your leg into the ground ( no shoes).

    No shoes? What about carpet or floorboards? Should I go outside and stand in soil? Would a bag of compost do as a substitute if I wanted to stay indoors? :confused:
