Having pain in groins and urination problem. Sugar and BP levels increased. Result of quitting smoking?

Hi, I m 43 years old, stopped smoking 5 weeks ago, did it cold turkey. Since then, the last few weeks, things seem to be getting worse, firstly I think my prostate is acting up, trouble getting and maintaining an erection , when I finally ejaculated, I experienced some pain in my penis, I have a slight pain in my left groin , I sometimes experience discomfort in the pelvic area, feels more prominent around buttocks area, urination is not what it used to be, sometimes weak stream. I had my sugar checked a week ago, 10.2, it never used to be above 5.6! My BP was also high....seems stopped smoking opened a can of worms , I felt perfectly fine when I smoked. I will be going to a doctor next week, I think a consultation is needed, I was just trying to get as much info as possible. Thank you very much, Anton.

Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~

Congratulations on quitting smoking. Your problems are NOT related to your quitting smoking. You are on your way to good health.

Make sure you have your BP and sugar levels under control by visiting with a physician who will advice you lifestyle changes as well as prescribe the right medications for you.

I will advise you about your sexual problems. You have problems with erection that are related to your medical conditions as well, so make sure that your medical treatment is adequate. I also recommend that you visit with a psychiatrist who can advise you with regards to your sexual health i.e. premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Having your sexual hormone levels checked and getting prescriptions for erectile dysfunction as well as ejaculation after adequate investigations will make your life a whole lot better.

Again congrats on quitting smoking and going on the road to good health. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day !
