Man cited back pain for self injecting semen

Ireland:One may wonder what came to this 33 year old male’s mind, before he consulted the doctor for back pain.On the 18th January this year,the moment he consulted for back pain, doctors noticed that,he had cellulitis on his right arm,and to everyone’s shock,his explanation was,’he had been intravenously injecting himself with his own semen monthly to ease the back pain.He told doctors that he had  been injecting himself with a hypodermic needle and syringe for 18 months to treat back pain that developed following lifting heavy objects.

He was then hospitalised and started on antibiotics.Though his back pain subsided while being hospitalised, he ended up discharging himself prior undergoing incision and drainage of the arm.
