Hi, i don't know if this happens to anyone else but i am 18 and i recently lost my v card. I've only had sex once but the weird thing is that when i had sex my arms and my legs went numb and it was kind of difficult to move them. Plus i had that "antsy" feeling too. That happened before i had sex too, when we were just "fooling around." Is there something wrong? Should i get this checked?
Please help! scared
In desperate need of answers
Any help is greatly appreciated pray
Thank you =]

This sounds like it is caused by improper breathing! If you're breathing too fast or too shallowly it can cause your limbs to tingle and/or become numb. Take deeper, slower breaths.

wow this happened to me my first time! so strange. i didn't go tingly or numb as such, but both my arms went paralysed. i literally couldnt move them, my fingers and hands were conpletely locked, i couldn't move them. i wasn't in pain, i wasn't even particularly nervous or anything. it just happened. it's never happened since.

numbness during sex
Same thing happened to me a few times, anytime the sex (whether it be oral or regular) became extremely pleasurable by entire body and face became numb. I even got carpal tunnel once or twice. Breathing normally/deep breathing is supposed to help? I'm definitely gonna try it because it is a very uncomfortable feeling... not to mention it keep me from having the "O".

THe last three times i had sex my hands balled into a fist went arms, legs went numb... I felt paralized I was freaked out i think it was because i was breathing so heavy. Because I went temp paralyzed the other day when i was crying really hard and breathing heavily. Does anyone know if this has anything to do with heart problems??

My mom has mycro valv prolaps and causes her to go paralyzed during sex or during crying and breathing. And I go numb a lot so my mom had me checked for the same heart problen and it turns out my problem is a pinched nerve witch gets worse during sex or heavy breathing do to the motion of ur body. So it could be that u wore crying so hard that u couldn't ketch ur breath and cause ur body to go paralyzed do to lack of oxyzen, heart problems ora pinched nerve so I think u should get checked out. Cause itsbetter to be safe then sorry

There was one guy I dated and with whom I felt especially physically attuned. Used to say our cerebellums were made from the same moulds. Anyway, with him, and only him, my arms would go numb whenever we kissed. I chalked it up to our amazing chemestry together.

I am a 21 years old man and I get paralyzed/locked hands and legs after particularly pleasurable oral sex experiences if I breathe too heavily. If slow deep breaths are taken properly, the limbs go numb out of pleasure but they're not totally paralyzed. It's a beautiful feeling either way so I don't worry about it. My girlfriend and I have a good laugh about it when it happens.
