what exactly is "numbness" in hanging?

what exactly is "numbness" in hanging?

I have a really simple question. I’m having troubled distinguishing accurately what “numbness” is. Previously I have had a bluehead after some hanging sets, and considered this to be a sure sign of “numbness” Recently I’ve adjusted my hanging technique and my head is no longer blue, but I cannot tell if it is still “numb”

As I touch my glans now, it has less sensitivity than the skin on the rest of my body. Have I already caused permanent damage to my head?

1. Is it normal to have a head that is less sensitive than the rest of your body?

2. Is it possible to be “numb” without having a blue head? or is a normal colored head a sign that your are in the clear and safe?

3. How many weeks would it take to restore temporary nerve damage?

What was it like before?

Normal is relative but there are a damn load of nerve ending around there. Are you circumcised?

>Is it possible to be “numb” without having a blue head?<

Yes

>How many weeks would it take to restore temporary nerve damage?<

Nerves take a long time to regrow. It depends how much damage (if any) there is.

How long have you been hanging now? Hanging isn’t the only cause of numbness.

Ignore the last bit I found your progress thread.

Have you completely dropped jelqing? A little jelqing every now and again to improve circulation can do wonders (normal and behind the balls).

To be honest I really can’t remember what it was like before. I don’t think it was extremely more sensitive, maybe a little.

I am circumsized

I have dropped jelqing, haven’t done it in a long time. It’s funny but I seem to have trouble with the more basic things. Jelqing for me doesn’t feel right. I’m always feeling like I’m going to bust a vein as I squeeze, then I try to squeeze lighter and it doesn’t feel as though I’m doing anything. Maybe I should go back and look at some of the newbie jelqing. I’ve been into all the advanced techniques without having spent any time on the beginner.

Is there anyway to tell if I’ve had nerve damage? If I were to take a break, would it be ok to jelq instead of hanging? I always thought pumping was even better than jelqing for improving circulation since this is what doctors prescribe for ED.

I also pumped but I don’t really think any nerve damage would have come from this as I never use high pressure or any more than 20 minutes.

Yes you notice a great dimishment in sesitivity. From what you say you don’t seem to have noticed that.

I don’t know how good your circumcision was but that could be a contributing factor to a lack of sensitivity. Firstly there is the fact that being circumcised prevents the normal function of the glands in the penis (around the glans :D ) and then there is a general toughening of the skin of the glans. A lot of guys talk about regaining sensitivity after foreskin restoration. There are other things you can do like looking at the way you treat your dick generally that might help, if its constantly dealing with abrasion it will try to become less sensitive.

Jelqing is good for keeping the circulation active when hanging. Don’t worry about it as an enlargement method as such. It can be done quite lightly.

>I also pumped but I don’t really think any nerve damage would have come from this as I never use high pressure or any more than 20 minutes.<

I’ve never noticed that being posted about in the pumpers forum but then I haven’t read all the recent threads.

>Any idea why this link to a jelq video results in<

Yes the mpeg versions of those videos were removed.

There is another site that describes the sensitivity of the penis stating how it is very sensitive but, very unique to the human body. It goes on to say that the penis’ glans is the only place on the human body which is has a ‘non-response to simple pressure’. This even included pin pricks. The human penis has a neurochemical nerve receptor in it that is designed for sexual stimuli only. Of course this is to a reasonable degree, an abrasion would create pain. But, could you becoming more aware of the actual stimulus level of your glans more now than previous and only ‘feeling’ like it is abnormal. I personally thought mine was incredibly sensitive till I read the pin prick thing and tried it as an experiment on myself. I found that My skin on my body was much more sensitive to pin prick and less sensitive to light stroking. But, I would have never made this realization if I had never read that site . I was looking and cannot find the link to this same spot in another site. I do know that I spent much time in a circumcised penis site. CIRC. Maybe some others can find or already know what it is I can’t seem to find again.


I feel like a little bity worm on a great big hook.

Goldylox excellent post. sometimes I think my “nerve/sensitivity” problems are all in my “head” (pun/play on words not intended..LOL), and think my head is generally less cooler/sensitive in the first place, especially me being circumcised.

Again, excellent post. Thanks.

EXCELLENT!! you hit the nail on the head!! that’s precisely what I’m talking about. like I can feel touch, movement across the skin but to just touch it I might not even know anyone is touching it unless there is movement or “abrasion” as you say.

still I wish there was some kind of test for numbness :)

Thanks again for sharing that information!!!

Machtenx,

There is also the sensation of your glans “going to sleep” like if you sleep on your arm or something similar.

Also, I’m concerned about your lack of jelqing. I really think you should jelq lightly after each hanging set and each pumping session just to “even out any blips you may have created” as Avocet put it.

I also believe that as we cause controlled damage to our units, we may cause scar tissue. Scar tissue has poor circulation and limits expansion. However, I think that light jelqing might help to break it up or prevent it.

Even if that is not the case I recommend not only light jelqing for circulation but also BTB jelqing.

Good info goldylox. If you find that link please post it.

ICM,

I don’t want to cause any damage, that’s one of my biggest PE fears, bigger than not gaining. How many jelqs do you think I should do between sets? 5 minutes of jelqing? I hate jelqing because I find I have to keep pressure of of the bottom of my unit because the veins underneath are more prominent and exposed and more succeptible to damage/discomfort. I usually use an overhand grip but I feel like my jelqs are less effective than with underhand.

It depends on whether you mean chronic or acute numbness. Chronic numbness does not subside for days or weeks, and indicates nerve damage. Acute numbness is short lived, minutes, and can occur from a temporary lack of blood flow or pressure on nerves. But a blue head does not mean there will be numbness and vice versa.

If you cannot tell if you are numb or not, it might be in your head, or could be a slight problem.

>As I touch my glans now, it has less sensitivity than the skin on the rest of my body. Have I already caused permanent damage to my head?<

Highly doubtful that you could have done permanent damage. The human body has an incredible ability to heal. In fact, I have not ever read of a case of ‘permanent’ damage through PE. But there have been a few guys that reported problems who never wrote the end of the story.

>3. How many weeks would it take to restore temporary nerve damage?<

It would depend on the degree of damage. I doubt any guys have ever done nerve damage to the point of actual nerve seperation, requiring re-growing nerves. Most of the damage done through PE is simply nerve bruising which requires rest to the affected tissues. Most of this damage requires weeks, not months to recover.

>I don’t want to cause any damage, that’s one of my biggest PE fears, bigger than not gaining.<

In order to deform tissues, to affect permanent gains, requires controlled damage. Period. You just have to perform the techniques in a manner to not push the damage too far, and avoid areas that can cause unwanted damage.

A severe degree of twisting in a hanger can cause the nerve bundle behind the head to receive some of this unwanted damage. You possibly bruised the nerve bundle behind the head because of this twisting. It will probably take a few days for the inflammation of the myelin sheath surrounding the nerves to subside and return to absolute normal. Advil may help.

During my hanging career, I had several episodes of chronic numbness due to faulty hangers and/or technique. I usually took time off from hanging till total feeling returned, plus a day or two extra. But there were times where I did not take any time off if I knew what the problem was exactly, and how to correct it.

>How many jelqs do you think I should do between sets? 5 minutes of jelqing?<

That should be fine. The goal between sets is to return full and complete circulation.
