Brief Answer:
Not due to masturbation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Masturbation as such does not cause a weakness or pain anywhere in the body. The pain that you are having is likely to be due to gastritis or gas and indigestion.
You need proton pump inhibitors for a week or two. Omeprazole is usually available over the counter and can be taken once a day before breakfast. Check with your pharmacist about its availability.

In addition, you also need some strict life style modification like-

Avoid hot and spicy foods and beverages - they worsen symptoms.
If you smoke, stop smoking.
Lose weight if needed.
Eat small but frequent meals at regular intervals.
Avoid lying down immediately after a meal. A minimum of 2-3 hours should be lapsed after a meal.
Raise the head of your bed 6 to 8 inches by securing wood blocks under the bedposts. Just using extra pillows will not help.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Brief Answer:
Can be due to decreased fluid intake.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Ejaculation does not cause any such persistent weakness. It is better to increase your fluid intake and do get your vitamin D3 levels evaluated and start with proper supplements in case there is any deficiency.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
