Was I just witnessing the birth of a new vein??
I was doing my PE today, spiced up with some new routines I begun with last week. One change is that I’m having a far infrared beam directed to my crouch from a 800W radiator a couple of feet away, having aluminium foil as heat shield for my ball sack and shades for eye protection. When coming to my recently introduced edging/manual clamping part, which feels really nice in the heat btw, I suddenly felt something pop in the super engorged shaft. I think I even heard it, scared the shit out of me and the erection was dropped in a microsecond to inspect damages.
I could feel no pain and it turned out there was no visual or functional damages. However, to my surprise there now is a superficial vein I never saw before at the place of the popping sensation. It even has a brand new look to it, well defined, blue/purple color. It is 1/8” thick and sitting just under the skin, connecting two larger veins that I have had forever. Looking more closely at the rest of the shaft I see quite a lot of very thin, red superficial vessels. I was thinking maybe this “new vein” was like that before, “stand by” vessels that can be connected into the main circuitry when need arises. I have no medical knowledge so I can only speculate.
Question: is it normal that “new veins” develop suddenly like that, or should I take it as a sign I’m doing things wrong?
