Major 1st question, dorsal nerve, please help

Hello everyone. I have been looking at the forum for a while but only recently registered. Unfortunately I have a problem and was hoping that you guys might have the wisdom and insight to help me out. Please don’t disregard my post as I am very stressed.

Anyway I tried PE for about two weeks and it seemed to be going well. Then at the end of the two week period I started having less frequent erections and weaker ones too. I had a slight pain just below the head of my penis on top and also on bottom. Perhaps I’ve injured the dorsal nerves? It has now been 2 months since then and I haven’t had morning wood a single time, nor have I had a truly hard erection. I am masturbating maybe once a week and have avoided sex completely after having a failed attempt with a girl I met at a party. Normally my dick would have been rock hard the minute I touched this girl, but unfortunately this time nothing.

I am very afraid that I have done permanent damage to my penis and it still hurts around the head. I don’t know what to do. I am 100% that the problem is not psychological. I actually think that I did the damage wen I did my stretches by pulling on the head of my penis. Why was I so stupid? Anyway what should I do.. Who should I seek out.. I’m only 19 years old guys!

Hi there. My suggestion is this, make an appointment with a urologist and have him/her take a look. You don’t have to tell them what you were doing per se. Yes it sounds like you got a little over zealous with the stretches especially if you were gripping right behind the glans.

If it has been 2 months, you need to get to the doc. I do understand the stressed out part, I’d be a little stressed too.

Hmm.. Maybe ill make an appointment.. But it’s hard because I don’t really wanna my parents to find out or ask me bout going to or the doctor, and I don’t kno how to find a urologist that is good. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Listen to sunshinekid, kid. She’s giving you good advice.

You will probably be okay, the penis is a fairly durable organ and it can recover from a lot of stress; that’s one thing this site proves.

Just because you aren’t waking up with wood doesn’t mean you aren’t having any. You could do the stamp test overnight to make sure about nocturnal erections.

Take some postage stamps and stick them around your flaccid in a circle before going to bed. If you awake and the stamps have broken out of the circle you have had a nocturnal erection and things are working down there to some degree.

Even though you disclaim it, I’d hazard a guess that stress is playing a factor in this - with the girl as well as by yourself. Stress is subtle and you don’t always know when it’s getting to you.

In the meantime could you be more specific about what you were doing? How hard you did it? Etc.? If you are more detailed there may be people who’ve had similar situations.

You can also check the Injuries forum.

To find a good urologist you start with your general practioner and get a referral. That, or the yellow pages.

You can’t make a doctor’s appointment without your parents?

Hmm.. Well I was doing the basic newbie routine.. But I was doing my stretches by pulling on my penis just below the head. I did only 30 second stretches. Does anyone kno how long the dorsal nerves take to heal.. Or wat I could do to speed up the process. Also if anyone can recommend a urologist in nyc that would be very much appreciated.

Also.. Do I need a specialist in like erectile issues or just any urologist?

Nerve damage doesn’t heal. It is not likely that you have nerve damage, however.

Most people do their stretches this way.

If you can, do the test I recommended. To be sure, see a urologist.

One and the same.

Have a look at the forum guidelines and my corrections to your posts before you post again, apolonas.

Go see an urologist, all medical information is kept confidential. If you are 18 your parents don’t have to know. But would it hurt if they did. I don’t know PE is a very personal private issue.

Even if you’re not 18, doctors in New York aren’t allowed to give out that information if you request otherwise.

And most wouldn’t anyway, given the nature of the problem.

However, if you’re not 18 you aren’t allowed to be here on this web site. Right?

You’re doing better kingpole (I especially like the detail of “an urologist”), but questions end with “?”, you know? :leftie:

You should definitely see a urologist. Was it the stretches that caused the damage? Jelqing? Best way to do stretches and jelqing, for me anyway, is firm and slow. If I were you I would also gently massage the area (If you haven’t already). You might also consider a heat pad.

Heating the area is good. So is light massage.

You can also take up to 800 mg of ibuprofen (4 Advil) every six hours (more than that and you can fuck up your kidneys).

Mostly you want to give it a rest.

So I set up an appointment.. And I’m goin to the doctor later this week. I’m still curious if anyone knows how long the penis takes to heal. Mr. Happy mentioned that damage to the dorsal nerve would not heal.. But I’m under the impression that it does. Also I’ve gotten really scared because I looked up jelqing injuries online and found stories about people who became impotent and were unable to get erections after minor periods of jelqing.

I'm celebrating you and all the newbies with my 5,000th post

Mr. Happy is correct.

Nerve damage does not heal, as nerves don’t regenerate the way other types of tissue do.

Yes. You are very impressionable, indeed. That’s easy to see.

When you say ‘nerve damage’ it means something specific. Let’s have a look:

Quote
Seddon's classification is a scheme for describing nerve injury.

1) Neurapraxia — pressure on the affected nerve with no loss of continuity.

2) Axonotmesis — neural tube intact, but axons are disrupted. These nerves are likely to recover.

3) Neurotmesis — the neural tube is severed. These injuries are likely permanent without repair, and will likely only achieve partial recovery at best.

Number three on the above list is what is commonly and colloquially referred to as ‘nerve damage’. It basically means fucked up beyond all repair. There have been instances where the body has been able to compensate (the partial recovery that is alluded to) but they are rare.

That’s why stem-cell research is such a big deal.

That said, I’ve got to ask: what makes you so sure you’ve damaged the dorsal nerve, doctor?

Is there constant, unrelenting pain? Or constant, unrelenting numbness? These are two (very general) symptoms of nerve damage. Have you got either of those?

While you’re mulling that over, let’s move on.

There are all sorts of injuries or problems you can have and most are unrelated to your dorsal nerve. If your only symptom is a lack of erectile response there are a few things that could be causing that. You immediately latched on to the dorsal nerve.

I’m thinking stress is probably a factor.

Depends on how it has been injured.

Yes. As I’ve said, you are very impressionable, indeed. We’ve seen that.

You are unlikely to damage your dorsal nerve by jelqing - even if you are jelqing improperly. In fact, you are unlikely to damage your penis by jelqing.

I have no idea what you think minor periods of jelqing means. Let’s attempt to define our terms.

Jelqing properly

It is generally recommended this be done at between a 60% and 80% erection level. If done this way, it will improve blood flow, stretch out the tissue a bit, as well as potentially break up mild plaques that may have built up in and around the organ.

Erection quality and morning wood typically improve on a mild to moderate regimen of jelqing. This is why we stress the Newbie Routine so much. And don’t skip the warm-up, it is crucial.

More often, injuries from jelqing come from jelqing very hard at a higher erection level, in the 80% - 100% range. The penis is at it’s most vulnerable when it is erect, that’s when you can injure it with pressure or force. You can develop Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie's disease

This is why caution is recommended for people doing erect bends or high erection level jelqing. It should be noted that both of these things can be done without adverse side effects if proper care is taken, with a caution: these exercises are advanced and are not recommended to an inexperienced PE enthusiast.

If you do are doing heavy jelqing, as in doing vast numbers of repetition, or using extremely intense force, one can develop what we lovingly categorize as penis exhaustion (a search-able term). With this, erections are more difficult to achieve or fully achieve, if at all; basically the old fella is tired out and needs a rest. It can sometimes take as much as three months to return to normal depending on how intensely you’ve worked it.

If this is what your problem is (and I suspect it is), listen to your body it is sending you a signal. There are a few threads here that talk about Physiological Indicators or PI's (another search-able term). The concept behind PI's is the most important aspect of PE safety - and, interestingly, gaining as well. Do yourself a favor and read any and all threads having to do with this. It is very important.

Thank God.

I understand that this stuff can be worrisome, but if all you were doing is jelqing a little too high or too hard it is unlikely that you have caused yourself permanent injury.

The best thing you can do for yourself prior to going to the doctor is relax. I’d recommend hot compresses, or a warm bath, some very mild massage, and just reassuring yourself that everything is going to be okay. That will do wonders for you, no matter what the problem turns out to be.

In the meantime, can you be more specific about what the symptoms are?

Good post Hap, well except I think you dropped your Treo in the shitter or something.

“Nerve damage” is commonly thought to be severed nerves? Really? I never knew that. I remember reading someplace here that nerves do regrow, but at a very slow rate.

It smells a little, right? You can tell.

I don’t pretend to be a neurologist, but there are different kinds of nerve injuries, some of which can recover. When we talk about nerve damage that is most often referring to the permanent kind. In actual fact, it’s not really a medical term, which is why I said commonly and colloquially and listed the more precise medical terminology.

Anyway, I think we can all agree that he’d have to be jelqing pretty damn hard to give himself serious nerve problems.

If that turns out to be true we could safely say he has some nerve.
