Man Injects Semen In Arm To Treat Back Pain, Doctors Baffled

But did it work though?

In a report from the Irish Medical Journal, it states how the man got a sudden onset of lower back pain after lifting a heavy steel object and from that devised the idea of his weird "treatment".

It states he had injected one monthly "dose" of semen for 18 consecutive months using a hypodermic needle which had been purchased online.

The journal reports that this is believed to be the first reported medical case of the injection of semen for such a objective, and went on to say that even in research of "more eclectic internet sites", they could not find any cases of human injection of semen.

The man discharged himself from the Adelaide and Meath Hospital in the Republic of Ireland's capital, before doctors had a chance to remove the semen.

The man's condition did not improve despite his semen injections, but a short hospital stay did relieve some of his pain, the doctor said.

Doctors found a red lump on his arm which eventually spread and hardened around an entry wound over a 24-hour period, according to the case report.

It adds that the case also demonstrates the risks involved with medical experimentation prior to extensive clinical research.

However, it did say that there was a known report on "the effects of subcutaneous semen injection into rats and rabbits" - lucky animals.
