- Lucky for him, the doctors were able to find a surprising cure.
Developing an allergy to anything later in life is a terrible experience. You might become unable to eat your favorite food or do the activities you most enjoy.
But this particular young man really got dealt the worst possible hand in the game of life. He developed a rare, bizarre allergy-like condition — to his own orgasms.
For years, the 27-year-old been experiencing weird flu-like symptoms whenever he… You know, finished. They would last for up to several days, making every orgasm a thoroughly unpleasant experience.
His condition left the man unable (and unwilling) to engage in any kind of romantic or sexual activity or relationship. He didn’t seem to have any other option, with doctors seemingly unable to cure his strange illness.
Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. After seeking help one last time, the man’s condition was miraculously cured.
And it’s all thanks to simple, over-the-counter allergy medicine.
10 Years of Celibacy
The young man’s strange condition was described in a case study published in the journal Urology Case Reports. According to the report, his symptoms began sometime around the of 18.
After an orgasm, he would quickly break into “flu-like symptoms.” He would begin coughing and sneezing and get a runny nose — much like with pollen allergy.
In addition, he’d get a rash on his forearms and his lymph nodes swell up. Yep, that sounds like allergies to us.
