Has your numbness recovered any since you posted last month? Mine has been staying the same so far. I am optimistic considering no serious damage could have been done but also frustrated that I have to wait for an uncertain amount of time to heal.
I've found a few older internet posts on this subject where the original poster drops off after a couple weeks and does not give status updates further down the road, which sucks. Personal accounts are far more valuable than articles.
Spider I still suffer from lack of sensitivity...any improvement on your end?

Confused Strain/Nerve injury/vessel injury

Quote:
Literally one year ago, I happened to be partaking in penis exercises, where you try to stretch and squeeze the penis to try and make it bigger. I figured what the hay and give it a try. Unfortunately I think I pulled too hard or held to tightly on my glans.

Well my glans went numb! In a week, the numbness was gone, but I've had reduced sensitivity. I must say the sensitivity has gotten better over this past year, but still not where it's supposed to be.

I realize I can feel touch on my glans, but I cannot feel temperature (only a little bit of heat, but no cold) or much pain on it. So it goes to show some small fibers must have been damaged. Thinly myelinated and unmyelinated fibers.

Will these ever heal?? I don't believe I tore my nerve, I think that would have hurt! I probably stretched and/or compressed it too hard. Will this finally heal? Has anyone had this happen? What's the last word on nerve damage if it wasn't torn/cut? I mean its been a year now, and I admit it has felt better, and I've felt tiny tingles directly in that area in the past month.

But I think I need some hope or something, this is taking absolutely forever, for such a tiny trauma, that induced no pain, but just numbness at the time. I really pray and hope everything returns to normal.
. Try and check the 3 I listed W/ you're doctor! And normally all 3 of those do heal not quite sure on the vessel though.

Good Luck 2 u

Default 6 months in similar situation

Hi guys, what's up?

I'm writing to you my story which has similar sympthoms from yours. First I'm describing my current symptoms. Then below some history of threatments and of when I started to feel like this.


Current Symptoms:
- Penis' skin with the same previous changes: different color, thinner skin
appearance and thicker / apparent veins, nerves more apparent. The nerve of the underside of the penis, it seems more salient and "hard" when the penis is erect.
- It seems like there's a division in the penis - In one part is normal
color and appearance and the rest is not.
- Heavy penis sensation, always pointing downwards and weighing down.
- Areas where previously felt itchy and where I used the pastes, are those
that sensitivity is lost. I can't feel the itching in these areas since I
lost sensitivity.
- Almost total lack of sensitivity in the penis body at the topside. The glans
has almost no sensitivity. Underside of the penis with greater sensitivity, but not 100% normal.
- Besides the penis, I feel that I lost sensitivity of the innermost part
of the buttocks or **** (feel that control how to eliminate gas / fart has
changed, for example, is difficult to explain).
- Loss of erection upon waking up accompanied by urination urge. I have now no erection in the morning when I wake up and the urge to urinate is
non-existent or very mild.
- Urinating: With the erect penis, must make great efforts to urinate. With
the soft penis, there is not the same sensitivity and control. Penis always
down.
- Erection: Occurs but needs greater stimulation than before to occur. In
closing the stimulation, the erection ends much faster than before.
- Ejaculation: It happens, but without the same pleasure. When it comes out
of the penis, it seems that comes "through the penis" with greater
difficulty and not as much pressure as before.
- When I force the muscles of this area, like if I was going to urinate for
example, I can't feel or control the penis.
- Pain in the lower back, especially on the right.
- In the past weeks, I started to feel tingling sensation on the right
foot. Rarely, pain on the sole right to get up and walk after sitting or
lying down.
- Pain when you press with your fingers a portion of the right leg muscles
on the lateral aspect of the buttock.
- No sexual relations since end of 2014, when the symptoms in the penis
started. In a relation with girlfriend since 2012 and she has no similar
symptoms.

History of Symptoms:
- Since 2011: Itching in the groin area, between thighs and scrotum, also
inside the buttocks and between scrotum and buttocks. I never did any
treatment related to this. I'm not sure what could have caused this.
- September 2014: Itching in the penis body with a white spot circle
- From September 2014 until March 2015:
1. Used Canesten paste in penis, inside the buttocks and I took water
bath vinegar in the penis only. Vinegar helped to "dry" the white spot and
it started to become red and then to come back to normal color of skin.
2. Continued to use for a few more months in penis, inside the
buttocks and I took water bath vinegar in the penis only, but if I stopped
using for a few days, the skin became red and itching again.
3. March: Doctor examined and told it was related to fungi. I used Icaden/Isokonazol) in penis and inside the buttocks.
4. It got better and I stopped using all pastes and vinegar bath.
- April 2015:
1. Started exercising at the gym, with weight lifting.
- May 2015:
1. Red skin area and itching started again.
2. Used Icaden - Isokonazol for 2 days on penis and inside the
buttocks.
3. Two days later, after going to gym, I took a shower and started to masturbate. I felt like my penis was under anesthesia. I couldn't stimulate it normally and the sensation was the same as if I was recovering from anesthesia, really doing effort to feel it and be able to unirate.
4. On following days, I also noticed that I didn't have the same
control to fart (it's hard to explain).
5. Suddenly, the itching completely disappeared, in the areas where I
lost sensation (in penis and between buttocks).
4. After that, it never came back to normal.
- May/June/July 2015:
1. I used Imacort, prescribed by Dermatologist. No changes in
the symptoms.
2. I used Protopic for 2 weeks as indicated by Urologist. Skin got
better, but the sensation was the same.

Examinations:
MRI, EMG, Blood (for testosterone), Urine, Electroencephalogram. Everything so far, normal. The only thing found on MRI is Tarlov Cyst and a disk that is 3mm not in the correct position, but it's not pressuring any nerves.

I'm really desperate, as probably most of you are. Thank you for the space and sorry for so many words. Hopefully one of you will have something else to indicate.

Default Almost 4 years not recovered

Hi everyone, I have been suffering the same thing for about 3.7 years and still am waiting to recover. I accidentally fell asleep for 3 hours while wearing a penis extender that was applying a lot of compression at the base of my glans.

Almost 4 years later I still am not able to feel what I am doing during sex, and am almost unable to orgasm. I have had to forget about intimacy with women.

Anyone actually recover from this? It would mean a lot to hear what other people's experiences with this have been. Good or bad. The anxiety of not having any idea what may or may not lie ahead for me might be what bothers me the most.

I have never had an MRI because I thought it was pointless. Also never had any nerve conductivity test. Just wanted to see if anyone found a fix/cure (e.g operation).

Anyone suffering from this type of injury feel free to message me or reply.
Hi Neuropathy76, it'd be great to hear if you ever made it to the doctor and what might have transpired over the last year. This is scary stuff! Hope you are still around and that we all can communicate with each other better.

Hey man the best I could say is just to grip your penis lightly. So in other words dont grip heavily at all when you masturbate. Here is my story on how I recovered. Other than that there isnt much you can do because your penis heals itself to a degree. If that doesn't work and it is still bothering you a lot I would just try therapy and antidepressants. You cannot guarantee happiness but you can at least try to attain it. And yeah no one wants to take pills but sometimes that is the only option. Regardless keep searching for a way man and goo luck to you!!!
