hard veiny/lymphy thing
I’ve read tons of stuff on the site about thrombosed veins and lymph vessels, and I’m still not sure what to think. Here’s my situation:
Years before I ever started PE, I would occasionally notice a hard, squiggly “vein” on the left side of my shaft. I think it usually started under the glans and went down the shaft an inch or so. I usually associated it with a stronger erection, and it caused no pain. In fact, I was glad to have it, thinking of it as “ribbed, for her pleasure”.
Fast forward a few years to my third day of PE. After finally getting the hang of jelqing (newbie routine), the thing reappears, only this time I’m not too happy to have it, as I’ve read posts about thrombosed veins. Reading some more, I decide to massage it, and voila, 2 minutes later it disappears. Cool! But the next day, as soon as I start jelqing, it comes back. Again, after a little massage, it goes away. I take a day off, then start again. It comes back, I massage it, blah blah blah…
And so I’ve spent the last few weeks doing my PE (newbie routine/pumping 101) and massaging the bastard away when I’m done. Now that all my PEing has made my erections better, more often than not, just getting a hard-on brings it back. For most of the time I’ve had it, it hasn’t been the least bit painful, but now it’s getting a little sore. I suspect the soreness is from the massaging/squeezing I do to get rid of it.
1. I don’t think it’s a thrombosed vein, but some kind of lymph vessel blockage. Is there a way to tell for sure? Is one less of a problem than the other?
2. Because this also happened in my pre-PE days, I don’t think rest will fix it. I think I have some kind of inherent weakness there that will always respond this way to PE. That being the case, I think I am just going to push on with PE. In and of itself, a hard, squiggly vein-like thing is not that big of a deal. If something is to go wrong, what would the next warning sign be?
3. As I stated earlier, I think the soreness is from my massaging and squeezing it. Do you think it’s better to make it go away when I get it, or should I leave it be?
Thanks in advance for any help.
