Not Likely, But...: I am not aware of any data that suggests those side effects from masturbation per se.

I have had a sore neck, dizziness and poor appetite/sickness feeling for past 4 days. I recently took a long Hall flight. Could this be a cause?

Sick: Certainly you could have gotten a viral infection while traveling. Make sure you are drinking adequate fluids.
If no better in another day or two, I would see your primary care physician or go to an urgent care facility.

How does forward head posture affect your breathing & how do you reverse the damage caused by years of poor posture? I get dizzy and fatigued often...

It is also possible that medications that you are on for the a-fib are effecting your blood pressure - which may be more noticeable with position changes (going from standing to sitting). Both possibilities should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

I've been having blackout episodes where I get dizzy, eyesight goes black & collapse and twitch. It is NOT from getting up too fast. What could it be?

Syncope: Your symptoms sound consistent with syncope, which is caused by briefly decreased blood pressure and loss of sufficient blood flow to the brain. There are other causes for this than "getting up too fast, " such as dehydration, irregular heart beats, or difficulty with the autonomic nervous system. I would stay well hydrated and discuss with your primary doctor soon. Take care, and stay well! ...Read more
