<B>My husband is 56 has nerve and spine damage due to several back injuries and 2 back surgeries, which has left him impotent. The strange thing is occassionally he wakes up with a full errection, without any provocation. He can't take viagera or yohimbie because of the side effects on his heart. Is there some other
herb or medication that can help.
That is strange, but I think great news. You can't get an erection if the nerves are damaged so that means his nerves must be working. He must have some other problem. Have you had his testosterone and thyroid levels checked? Perhaps he doesn't need viagra, perhaps he just needs a proper level of testosterone or thyroid. It is not unusual for a man his age to have low hormone levels, especially if he has heart problems which are often associated with low testosterone.
