Man hospitalised after injecting semen into his own arm to cure his 'severe, sudden onset' back pain
Key points: The man initially sought medical attention for "severe, sudden onset" back pain when doctors noticed his infected arm
A case study published in the Irish Medical Journal (IMJ) says the man sought medical attention after complaining of "severe, sudden onset lower back pain" after "lifting a heavy steel object three days prior", but later revealed his back pain had been much more long standing.
At this point, the man revealed his homespun back pain remedy — injecting the semen into his own arm once a month, for 18 months, using a hypodermic needle he bought online.
"A search of more eclectic internet sites and forums found no other documentation of semen injection for back pain treatment or other uses."
