Man's attempt to treat back pain with semen injections goes horribly wrong

He had "failed multiple attempts at injecting the bodily fluid, ' she wrote, in what he called an 'innovative method to treat back pain".

An unidentified 33-year-old baffled doctors when he walked into a Dublin hospital complaining of severe pain in his lower back.

But he'd only come into the emergency room when his back pain worsened after attempting to lift a heavy steel object.

It was also found that he had emphysema and oedema better known as excess watery fluid under his skin. He said that he had injected a dose of his semen each month for a year and a half using a hypodermic needle that he had bought on the internet. He had devised this "cure" independent of medical advice.

The IMJ said it was the first reported case of semen injection for use as a medical treatment.

He discharged himself from the Adelaide and Meath Hospital in the Republic of Ireland's capital, before doctors had a chance to remove the semen.

Wolf Blood Super Moon will be visible from Northern Ireland
But National Weather Service cloud-cover forecasts show that the Northeast and much of the West might have their views obscured. We get two to five supermoons every year, while the gap between blood moons is anywhere from six months to about three years.

Prince Philip 'shocked and shaken' but uninjured after auto overturns in crash
Philip drove then USA president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle to lunch during their state visit to Britain in 2016. Pictures from the scene show one vehicle on its side in the road while another appears to have crashed into a bush.

Democrats introduce $15 minimum wage bill
Murphy said he opposed the carve-outs and the slower rate of wage increases. That's roughly three-tenths of one percent of that overall population.

The case at least highlights the dangers of untrained people using needles, the report said, and the hazards involved with injecting substances into your veins that are not intended for that objective.

The case report noted that while there is a report on the effects of subcutaneous semen injection into rats and rabbits, there are no other cases of intravenous semen injection into humans found across literature. Doctors immediately administered antimicrobial treatment.

Following the treatment with antibiotics, the redness on the man's arm spread and then hardened around the tiny injection wound over the next 24 hours.

Dr. Dunne also warned people about the dangers of carrying out such experiments without proper medical training.

The study went on to say this situation must be taken as a warning and "demonstrates the risks involved with medical experimentation prior to extensive clinical research in the form of phased trials inclusive of safety and efficacy assessments".
