Unhappy Nerve damage in the most unlikely of places, help!

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.

Default Not Peripheral Neuropathy

I think you should see your doctor immediately.

Neurontin (& Lyrica I think-possibly other PN meds) has a s/e of desensitization
and lack of penile response, as well as sx of ED.
I'd talk to a doc who was experienced in the sx of Gabapentin (neurontin)
regarding this issue.
It doesn't get better, if you continue to take the med.

Have already, long time ago. It is peripheral neuropathy lol, it's injury related.

I don't use any of these drugs, I don't have pain.




But aside from that what about the nerves, do they heal after a year??

This would explain my lack of fun in those regions. Appreciate the input.

Doesn't anyone have knowledge on healing of injured nerves, whether through compression or stretch?? I realize my case is unique but still, I'd imagine people on this site to have some kind of experience with injury related neuropathy.

I've read sites on it, but I'm looking for people who've had injured nerves, and how they healed etc.

Let's see if I understand this.

You have peripheral neuropathy in your penis??

Or you had peripheral neuropathy somewhere else nd because you tried to stretch your penis, you believe you have injured it? Is this the case?

Have you seen your urologist?

And the most important question.

And please forgive me for being DIRECT here, but we are talking penises.

Can you get an erection, and can you ejaculate?

Thanks much.

Melody

Peripheral neuropathy is any kind of malfunction of the nervous system. Whether that be from a disease, drugs, or injury, etc.

Yes I can get an erection yes I can ejaculate.

It's just the sensory nerves not the ones that control erection and etc, motor I suppose, not those.

It's only in my glans. It came from basically being too brutal with it, by stretching it.

I've been to a urologist and he said it should heal. There's not much help out there from doctor's on nerves. That's why I'm seeking experience of those who've had stretch/compression nerve type injury.

I don't have man parts so I can't identify.
However, I agree that you should see a Dr. (one that deals specifically in nerve damage)
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.
