Sore and shaky after sex?

Alright maybe it's just me, I don't know. I already know it's possible to pass from an amazing orgasm. But why on earth are my back and shoulders so sore and tense?? I wasn't on top once, no crazy positions, I literally didn't use them in a way that would be sore. One of my friends says that they're sore cuz ur whole body and muscles tense up everytime u have an orgasm. Is that true and is that why I'm so sore? Also my fingers/hands/arms get numb feeling like they're asleep and they get shaky. Sometimes my legs do too. Is that normal?? Any advice helps =] thank u!

Hi there, and welcome to the board.

I've had problems like that when I hold my breath during an orgasm.

I vote tensing & holding breath too.

I've had face twitches, ringing ears, weak knees, leg spasms, numb hands & lips. It's all worth it.

DW has gotten the "fingers/hands/arms get numb feeling" 2 or 3 times in the past few years. We haven't figured out why. While she did have a good orgasm, they were average. She has also experienced FE twice. Again, these were not with her most intense orgasms.

It just goes to show the variety and complexity of our bodies. If it continues, discuss it with your doctor.
