Heart attack here too, 11 years ago. How old are you, fireman? I could make a poll to see if it is common to have heart problems in this forum...
Hi Gdop
I am 60. Just been diagnosed with heart failure as a result of the heart attack 12 years ago -and not being prescribed beta blockers in all that time for some reason. I have had EA for many years; long before my anxiety and depression which grew significantly after my attack. also I regret to say I have a marked lack of self confidence, self belief, call it what you will. I am self employed, and having those conditions while self employed is like walking a tightrope, juggling live explosives, with crocodiles waiting for a fall, while tax men and all and sundry throw things at you. so suffice to say im a tense person. but I don't believe that is the root cause of the EA despite what a psychologist might say. I regularly remind my gp of my chronic problem. his last reply was ''well look at all the tablets you are taking for your heart''. what a load of bollocks. ive had it over 30 years. people who don't suffer from this have no comprehension of the devastation it can cause to your life quality. I have wondered about CBD oil with its current rise in prominence, but that has a side effect of lowering blood pressure which would not be good for me, as  I already have low pressure, and I need to take erection enhancers like Viagra derivatives which makes it even lower. I am getting pretty desperate to feel a good climax again.

I tried a electostim I bought from Amazon. It wasn't really pleasurable, though I was able to ejaculate with it (with no orgasm as usual). Unfortunately I don't think it is a solution for our problem.

apart from when I tried to remove it from my penis and got a hefty shock through my hand.

When I was playing around with mine, I got zapped on the hand a few times too. I was probably trying to adjust position while it was on.

Manual adjustment seems like a no no for a TENS unit. The intensity you feel is so dependent on where you place it. The directions say to place it, start from the lowest settings, then ramp up to effect desired.
