Nerve Damage, Numbness
Where do I begin? It sucks.. Bad!
This can happen from stretching, jelqing, or even masturbation.
If you notice numbness, this is what I’ve come to find to help heal nerve as quickly as possible. If you’re like me you’ll have no patience to wait and wait. In my case my numbness went away in a week, amazing feeling. But that week was hell. Unfortunately I damaged it again that week, and haven’t felt full feeling in 3 months or so, because I can’t seem to keep my hands off. So word to the wise, if you feel numbness, leave it alone for two weeks, seriously don’t touch it, don’t look at it, it will suck, but it’s better than 3 months!
Quick nerve terms:
Axons, the very thing that send signals through the body.
Myelin sheath, the insulation to these axons.
Both can be inflammed, hit, or cut.
Just bruising (and not lacerating them) is considered most likely to heal.
Takes forever to heal, nothing in ‘medicine’ to speed the process up.
Only pain medications, such as Lyrica, Neurontin, healing takes it’s own time.
So now in desperation and research to find out what the hell to get this healed (penis glans numb) in the fasted way possible this is what I found:
No masturbation, ever.
Takes hot baths.
Warm and cold wrap to shock nerves, moreso warm though.
Vitamin B, complex, but mainly B6, B12, Folic Acid.
Exercise wouldn’t hurt either, increasing circulation.
On somewhat of a side note, if you smoke, everything takes longer to heal.
Thats basically all you can do. If you get numbness, leave it alone for 2 weeks minimum. If it recurs wait a good 6 weeks.
Nerve damage takes f’n forever, and even if you’re the most patient person in the world, I guarantee you, you will piss and moan, until it heals.
This is not fun, at all. And the supps above are about the only thing for quick healing of nerves, most importantly the Vitamin B, SAM-e, and Carnitine. I’ve read Carnitine helps with axon regeneration. SAM-e helps with myelin sheath regeneration. Vitamin B supports a health nervous system. And 80% of the myelin sheath is lipid fat, so EFA’s are good. In the wonderful world of Neurology, when it comes to nerve damage and healing, all they have is for when it will heal is “bahh-uhno” and for how to speed up the healing is “stop damaging it.” Clearly advanced. Take my advice from the above, it’s really about the only thing you will find online to help to speed up the process. The rest is just to wait, wait, and wait. You have no idea how much I wish I kept my hands off my penis that first initial one to two weeks. It has been a very major distress to say the least. It has been a very major distress to say the least. Good luck, and most importantly God speed.
