Even though you feel that they don't do much with nerve damage, and they don't.
Injury related ones probably have a much better chance of being repaired. You know the cause of damage.
Yeah I have actually seen a GP, urologist and a neurologist.

GP didn't have much info, but said it should heal. Urologist didn't have much info either but said it probably will heal. And the neurologist check out my reflexes and all that to see if I had any other existing nerve problems, and I had none. He said it should heal, but not if I continue to do what I was doing. Not sure if he meant if I were to do it again it would be permanent, or that it will return to normal if I stop it forever. He wasn't much help either really.

So all I can rely on now are people like me who have had an injury related neuropathy and combine our research on healing.

I've never seen this problem,on NeuroTalk ,dosen't mean there are others
who have been afraid to ask..You have been to correct Drs. why not give it
time and stop being so rough with your body part..First I am in my 60's
and do not think streching will change the way you are ,which I'm sure is fine,
if you where not loaded up on meds by Drs they must feel it will get better Well did you say how long this has been
going on the numbess has been affecting you,if you did sorry I didn't catch it. This post may bring out others who have gone through this,or you may have to check the stickies. Hugs to all Sue the b12 meth has helped some
it's worth a try.

Well, what you can do to start helping yourself is to take Methyl B-12 every day. That helped my neuropathy in a BIG way.

It's only a start, but hey, every little bit helps. Methyl B-12 helps to heal nerves. Google it and you'll get all the information.

I take 5000 sublingually every single morning (on an empty stomach).

Take care and best of luck.

Yeah bringing it up online isn't a big deal, in person was rough. But after that talking about anything is a cinch.

It's honestly not numb any more, atleast not that like rubber glove feeling of numbness, just reduced sensitivity. However I can't really fully feel heat and cold. So I'm thinking the larger myelinated nerves in the penis healed, cuz I can feel touch. But the smaller ones involved with pain and temperature still need some time, I hope.

I jsut don't want it to be permanent. But yeah no doctor's offered drugs, probably cuz most drugs are for pain, and this isn't a painful event, but a painless event.

I realize my situation is unique, and not many people have had it happen, but there are internet cases out there I know for a fact. However I'm just looking for a meet at the middle of just people who have had injury neuropathy and how long it took to heal if at all, and what happened. Similar stretch/compression injury similar to this, but in another area of the body.

The loss of sensitivity has been going on for a year, but subtley getting better. The numbness was gone in a year. If it was still numb today, lord knows what I'd do.


Edit: K thanks I'll try methyl b-12, I have heard of it.

While not in the same region I did hear that nerve crush injuries can take upwards of two years to heal. I have a nerve crush injury in my shoulder and its about two years now that I feel closer to normal.

Hang in there

Nice, well I'll take 2 years over never, any time. Quite the practice of patience isn't it? Ugh.

What happened to you for the nerve to crush?


Oh and in my previous post I meant the numbness was gone in a week not a year. But the reduced sensitivity has been going on for a year, while slowly getting better. It's just crazy how long this takes to heal! (if at all )

But I'll try to stay optimistic...

Why didn't you call him back and ask him to be more specific?

Your case, if it is really a case of PN, is probably the most unique, to date.
on this forum.
You've had some answers, but I doubt if anyone else has had the same experience.

BTW - Gabapentin/Neurontin/Lyrica is not a pain med. It decreases symptoms of PN and is moreover an anti-spasm (originally developed for epilepsy) medication to assist in subduing the mis-firing of nerves that send wrong signals to the brain.

Remember what yer mom said ...
"keep playin' with that thing & it'll fall off..."

Yeah I know its unique, but check out any kind of 'penis exercises' on websites such as XXXXXXXXXX

And nope he couldn't be more specific, he was worthless.

But it is PN, that is no question, I damaged the nerves locally on my penis, that is one form of PN.

So these nerves will heal? I'm just scared its permanent. That's why I came here, for knowledge and hope. I can't believe these things take so long to heal, practically permanent with how long they take.

Mine was a nreve crushinjury to the brachial plexus area in the shoulder. I tried the neurontin and the lyrica and they helped minimally. PT helped themost and I did have surgery to remove the crush since mine was caused structurally. BUt I would think the crush part for you is over and now the healing.

But yeah it has taken around 2 years and the other thing I did was (after reading all of mrsd's vitamin posts) make sure my body was getting enough b vitamins to help the nerves heal. But nerve tissue takes time to heal so patience is a virtue in this case isn't it?
