Numbness in the genital area is one of the key indicators and distinguishing features of PSSD (Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction). Additionally, patients experience erectile dysfunction, an inability to become aroused, and anorgasmia.

Patients often also describe a feeling of pressure in the head, dysautonomia, and derealization, which they did not experience before starting the medication.

"I have not received help from the healthcare system as my referrals to specialized care have been repeatedly denied. My reduced skin sensation is not even being considered for examination, even though it could potentially be treated – many PSSD patients I know have been diagnosed with inflammatory small fiber neuropathy.

Resources must be allocated for the research and treatment of PSSD. Professor Roberto Melcangi from the University of Milan offers research collaboration in the field of neurology in Finland for clinical patient studies. I request that this opportunity be seized."

"Today, I can't even date anymore because of many of my symptoms. I don't know if I can ever start a family, if I can continue my education, or hold a job. My symptoms include constant fatigue, general anhedonia, a lack of pleasure in experiences, severe numbness all over my body, and extensive sexual dysfunction.

Before the medication, I was just an ordinary young girl and didn't suffer from any of the above-mentioned symptoms. Things that used to be normal are now just a distant dream."

"I was prescribed SSRI medications over 20 years ago, and I have been suffering from their side effects ever since. After starting the medication, the connections between my brain and genitals were severed, and the sensation in my body decreased significantly, to the point where I lost my sexuality. My situation has not improved, even though I have been off the medication for over a year."
