I am 47 years old and I need some advice considering Viagra use. Could Viagra cause Heart Problems? I do not think that my problem with erection is connected with physical state my body is in, though I am a bit over weighted. I think that it has to do something with my daily-accumulated stress. I have been recently appointed to a place of CEO in my company and that is a strenuous job. Anyway, can someone answer my question?

Viagra can cause heart problems. You have surely heard of heart trouble men older men get into during intercourse. You can imagine then what might happen with the use of medicament that helps with erection. You said that your job is stressful, perhaps you should consider some method of relieving yourself from all that stress. It might help you more then Viagra.

Hi gran,
Viagra can cause heart problems, and for this reason you have to do a visit from your doctor before taking the blue pills.
I did it.
I asked to my doctor if I was able for Viagra, and after a visit he told me that was everything ok.
So, I ordered some viagra and now I'm very satisfied.
Good luck gran!

I am 38, white, very healthy and fit, 5'11" and 165 pounds, thin and muscular. I have never had any cardiovascular or respiratory issues of any kind. Up until a few months ago I typically exercised 2-3 times each week, with a 7 to 8 minute/mile run each workout in addition to moderate weight-lifting. I have always prided myself on having an extremely healthy heart/lung functioning, and enjoyed being one of the rare individuals for whom intensive cardio exercise comes easily and actually feels good as I'm doing it, as if my body needs it and thrives from it.

I got a prescription for viagra (100 mg) about 4 months ago. I have never had any major ED problems, but I have always had issues with delayed ejaculation and, because it sometimes takes me so long to ejaculate, I am not always able to consistently maintain a full erection. It was a minor issue and, with my general practitioner's advice and support, I thought I would simply experiment with viagra to see whether it helped.

The first time I took viagra I took one 100mg pill. It did work extremely well as far as producing a lasting erection, but after I had sex I had one of the most excruciating headaches of my life that lasted for many hours. The next few times I took viagra I took only 50mg each time (each instance spread out by at least a few days if not a week or more), and each time it worked very well and still produced a headache and flushing but the headache was more moderate and was tolerable. I also experimented a few times with taking only 25mg which produced flushing but minimal headaches, but of course had less of an impact on my erections.

After taking viagra a total of maybe 6 or 7 times over the course of 2-3 months, two things started to happen. First, the viagra stopped producing strong, reliable erections, even at 50mg, it seemed not to really do anything, and the very last time I took it, about 2-3 weeks ago, I actually had more trouble than usual maintaining a full erection. Second and much more importantly, I started noticing a dramatically decreased ability to engage in cardio exercise. Instead of easily and pleasurably being able to run a 7-8 minute/mile on the treadmill, after 2 minutes at my normal pace (about 7.5 mph) my heart felt like it was going to explode and I was gasping for air and I had to stop. I could feel my pulse very intensely in my chest and neck and ears in a way I had never experienced before. After a few minutes of resting or walking I could start up again and sustain my running pace for another minute or so but then the same thing would happen. In addition to the heart and breathing problems, my lower legs felt a little numb and tingly and heavy, also a feeling I had never felt before.

Around that time I also started noticing the same kind of heart-related symptoms (feeling my heart beating intensely and feeling like it was going to explode) at even minor physical exertion, such as climbing a flight of stairs or carrying one of my children for a few minutes or running to catch a bus.

Naturally I stopped taking the viagra (I took it a total of approximately 8 or 9 times), and it has now been about 2-3 weeks since I last took any viagra. However, I am still experiencing all of the above cardio symptoms when I try to run, and upon even minor physical exertion. If anything the symptoms seem to be getting slightly worse rather than better. I have engaged in sexual activity twice since stopping the viagra and both times were mostly the same as things had been before I started taking viagra, except for perhaps a touch more difficulty than usual at maintaining a full erection.

It is terribly frustrating and disturbing to have these symptoms when I attempt to exercise and even when I undertake moderate physical exertion, and it is such a dramatic change from the way my body has behaved my entire life that I am scared that some kind of permanent damage has been done to my cardio system as a result of taking viagra.

jhdjhdjhd Are you feeling any better now?  I am in a very similar situation to you and my story is almost identical, though I probably wasn't quite as gym fit as you to start with!  I have taken so little, Kamagra in my case, I couldn't believe it could have given me these symptoms of racing heart beat etc.  Got mine from the internet but I am sure it is the genuine Indian manufactured version of Sildenafil.  I don't have ED and just tried it out of curiosity really - happily married but I thought why not give it a go for a turbo charge!!  I have taken less than 700mg in 25 mg doses spread over around 9 months.  It certainly boosts performance in a predictable fashion but I noticed that it had no effect if I took it the morning after I had worked out the night before and was most effective if I hadn't worked out for a couple of days.  I wonder if exercise produces chemicals in the body which counteract the effectiveness of Sildenafil but also means it has an effect on the heart.  My symptoms first appeared several days after I last took 25mg and are showing no signs of going away.  Have been to the doctor who has diagnosed a slight heart murmur and I am having blood tests etc next week.  It has just dawned on me that the Kamagra must be the culprit which is a bit of a worry.  They do say you shouldn't take it if you don't have ED and I think that is good advice.  Can't believe there is talk on the web of Viagra boosting athletes' performance.  Wish I had never been near the stuff but so many people seem to take it with no problems apart from the headaches etc.  I always felt slightly rotten and hungover afterwards so for that reason only took it infrequently for a performance boost.  Powerful drug and best avoided unless ED is chronic in my opinion.

I came across this article several days ago and wanted to let whoever wrote this that I had the exact same thing happen to me? I wanted to find out if you ever discovered what was causing your issues?? I have been to over 27 specialist across the country and they have found nothing?? This has been very disappointing. Like you I was in the gym 5 days per week at least 2 hours per day, ran 6 to 10 miles per day. But then like overnight I began to have the same symptoms as you. I have seen many cardio doctors from John Hopkins to the Mayo Clinics, and the best ENT's in the world, Blood test after blood test, as a matter of fact I've had so many test that my doctors have now told me there are no more test??? I have spent close to 1 million dollars trying to find the cause of the problem. Like some of you here, I cannot not do the same things that I used to do because of the racing heart problem, so I have to do my exercises in a different way,(Bike riding, (flat land 6 miles per day broken into two trips. (Moderate yard work), Golf, Nine holes, 18 can be a little hard to do. I have had to change my diet completely, No caffeine, stay away from sweets, and by the way caffeine is in almost everything, Breads and soft drinks are on my no eat list, I went to bottled water, I just picked one I liked and stuck with it. I eat apples, pears, oranges, Greek yogurt, Chicken, and sometimes moderate (4 oz) servings of steak or hamburger and that is it. NO FRIED FOODS, NO PIZZA AND NO BEER OR WINE no stimulates at all. The funny things is that I do not have diabetes nor is my A1-C level out of control. So go figure, All I know is that after changing my diet around I do have better days. But if I change just one little thing with my diet, BAM. I'm back to square one. I do have a vertigo issue that has caused me problems for the last 10 years, so I don't know why all this is the way it is,, But it all started with a little blue pill. I'm afraid that what ever damage was done is permanent. And to this date not a single doctor will address the issue with the blue pill, with the exception of one that told me that Viagra increase the Nitrous Oxide in the body which in return can cause your heart to skip a few beats during the duration of the Viagra window. I wanted to know has anyone else discovered any answers to the problems that apparently have effected many of us? Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about this issue.

man, i just feel the symptoms just like what didl.. just the same.. now i never take any viaga anymore since i lost my ability even to take a little run..! i go to doctor and the doctor said it was because the viagra.. the doctor said that when i take the blue pill, then i could make a longer intercouse because viagra can make my penis erect longer and harder, but in the other side, when i do that intercouse, i did not realize that my heart is working to hard and can not take too much pressure. so that is why after ejaculate i feel short breathing and chest pain.. after hear an explanation from my doctor, i stop using viagra anymore..

Your story sounds much like mine. My cardiac surgeon who did my bypass surgery about 5 months after I stopped using Viagra looked at my heart and said it was scared up terribly from many mini strokes. My sex life has been over for nearly 10 years. My energy is gone especially in the heat and humidity of Florida. My life sucks. I hope yours does not go in the same direction mine has. It just ain't worth living it.

I disagree with gran426z62. Viagra lowers blood pressure and that is good for the heart.

Get an EKG and stress test if needed.
