CAN HELP : Sex can help with stress but so can other things like exercise or meditation or deep breathing. Masturbation should not cause sexual problems unless that keeps you from meeting people.

Maturbation harmless: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Drink more water. Wish you good health!
