What do you do for a living
« on: February 09, 2015, 01:03:42 PM »

Seems like a weird title for a topic under Causes of Peyronies, but I wonder how much our symptoms contribute to what we do for a living.  I for one, I'm in IT consulting.  Tons of sitting is involved.  I had a basically a whole year where I had been working remote from my office and I feel that's really when I started noticing symptoms.  Thoughts?

I sit all day too, and had just started a job where I was particularly chair-bound and lacking in exercise in 2013 when I had a flare up.  I've wondered often if there is a connection.

No connection for me.
The Peyronies started during excessive field work I had, at least two/three times a week. Same with the flair-ups.

IT.  Sit all the time.  Have for decades.  Old injuries reduce the amount of actual physical work I can do.  Did a lot of physical last summer, before I noticed the onset of Peyronies Disease...actually lost 50 lbs or so restoring an old vehicle in the summer, hoisting cast iron engine parts by hand and what not.  Peyronies Disease didn't show up until ... immediately after that.  So in my case it is almost like exercise CAUSED it...although I don't believe that for a minute.

Also do a lot of sitting, but don't know if it can be correlated to Peyronies, or simply any of the jobs we all do today involve sitting in from a PC screen.

Even for my age (65 years) I am a very active fellow.   My lifestyle, as far as work-related exercise goes, hasn't changed for decades.   Arthritis has affected dexterity in my hands, but except for very fine hand work, I've remained as active and hard working as ever.   My Peyronie's onset was the result of vigorous lovemaking with my wife, occurring only 7 months ago.  Since Peyronie's, sex is still possible, though difficult and a bit painful for me and not nearly as frequently as before Peyronies Disease.   Still, after reading other guys' stories, I feel very fortunate.  I've only recently started Pentox and Co Q-10 but will soon be adding other supplements recommended on this sited and VED or traction (can't afford both at present).  --artguy1
