Long Lasting Injury
I was jelqing last year and realized I had injured myself. I stopped jelqing, but I still continued to masturbate quite frequently, which is normal to me. It’s been many months, close to a year, I think, and there is still pain in my penis. There is some kind of sore feeling on the left side that is pretty much constant. I can still get a hard erection and jack off fine, and the pain is slight, but it’s still there after all this time. I can’t afford to see a doctor, so I am asking the members of this forum, instead.
What do you think is wrong with my cock? Perhaps it is nerve damage, which I’ve heard takes a long time to heal. I have been trying to be abstinent, and that does seem to help, but after a few days I succumb to my old habits. Even while masturbating, though, shouldn’t my penis have healed already? The pain comes and goes, and sometimes, confusingly, actually disappears when masturbating. However, after masturbating, the penis becomes more tender and the pain returns.
Like I said, it is mild pain, but has been persistent for a long time. Sometimes I don’t notice it, other times I do. What is also strange, is that I have these inflamed bumps that appear every now and again on the left side of my shaft. When I start messaging the inflamed area, the bumps disappear. At times, the bumps feel like one long slender ridge. Once again, if I message it, it goes away.
So, basically, I’ve no idea what I did. I know I should probably see a doctor at this point, but I do not have enough money for one.
