Man Almost Masturbates Himself To Death After Suffering A Stroke
A man almost died from masturbating after he suffered a stroke just moments after ejaculating.
Doctors described how the unnamed Japanese man, 51, enjoyed masturbating several times a day.
But one day his habit led to a potentially deadly subarachnoid haemorrhage – when a blood vessel in the brain bursts.
The NHS says: “A subarachnoid haemorrhage sometimes happens during physical effort or straining, such as coughing, going to the toilet, lifting something heavy or having sex.”
The doctors wrote in the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases that sex is “known as one of the daily activities triggering spontaneous” strokes.
They described how the “right-handed man” began experiencing an agonising “thunderclap” headache after pleasuring himself and later began vomiting, MailOnline reports.
He went to Nagoya City University Hospital where concerned medics ran a series of tests.
They found he had low blood pressure and was confused.
Confusion, headaches, blurred vision, trouble speaking and walking are just some of the signs of a stroke.
A CT scan confirmed the man’s diagnosis and he was treated in hospital.
The man luckily survived and was discharged after nearly two weeks in hospital in an “excellent” condition.
