  • Recurrent injury, need advice.

    So as many of you know I have been having a chronic re-occurring problem with foreskin restoration. I probably should have quit long ago... But here I am.

    So these are the symptoms, please if you have any ideas let me know.

    - confusion, inability to concentrate, cannot think clearly, brainfog
    -pressure in pelvic area
    -dull ache in pelvic area
    -numb penis after sitting
    -frequent urination

    I know these symptoms are from tugging for a fact. But I cannot pinpoint what is causing it... I have tried many supplements and have only been let down.

    I have had several theories but I am giving up. If the mental confusion does not stop I may lose my job.

      Have you seen a doctor about this? You say you are sure it is from tugging, yet I have trouble envisioning how tugging would cause these symptoms. What leads you to this diagnosis? If you have not been to a doctor, I would go and see what the doctor has to say.

      To me, it suggests a prostate issue. You will need a doctor to diagnose this, a urologist is a specialist in that area.

        I have seen doctors but no urologists as I am too embarrassed to admit to my specific activities. I think it is an issue with the cord that connects to my right testicle. But I am not certain, perhaps a lymphatic issue.

        I already know the doctor will tell me to stop tugging which I also do not want to hear.

        I do not think it is prostate, I have tried taking saw palmetto and pumpkin oil and not only did it not help but it gave me dry orgasms for a few days...

        I am very frustrated at the moment, the brain fog is the worst part.... Literally losing the ability to think is an absolute terror...

          Best to see a urologist/doctor, use a different doctor if you are not happy with the treatment / support of your own doctor, chances are these issues and symptoms won't go away by themselves.

          As for being embarrassed, you seem happy to talk to us online, so no need to be embarrassed!

          Hope you get it sorted out.

            I had benign enlargement of my prostate. The only symptom I had was pain in my right testicle that started out of the blue and lasted a day or so. When I went to the urologist, he said one thing that has stuck with me.

            He said, "No one comes to him complaining of their prostate hurting."

            The point being that the pain, pressure, etc may be form your prostate, but you won't feel it there quite possibly.

            Your assumption that the doctor will tell you to stop is an assumption. You do not know that. But even if he does say that, you do not have to listen if it does not make sense, if it is not supported by logic and evidence.

            Your assumption that if it was a prostate issue then it would have been relieved by saw palmetto and/or pumpkin seed oils and/or whatever else you have tried is just that, an assumption. You have not done any tests that would tell you, you simply try some over the counter remedy assuming that will help.

            You should see a doctor. You should tell him or her everything they ask about related to this condition. Then you can choose to try their advice or not. Seems to me you would be willing to try their advice, currently you are trying the advice of an untrained amateur....yourself.

            Best wishes

              Don't rule out the possibility of a prostate issue just because alternative medicine failed to fix the problem.

              Assuming that these supplements are good at increasing the health of your prostate, that doesn't mean that they will reverse any type of possible problem that your prostate has been experiencing.

                Some of us have very sensitive immune systems, even allergies to small amounts of material. Even minuscule amounts of irritation may be triggering your immune system to attack the groin area, causing your testosterone-dependent symptoms.

                Maybe try some turmeric pills and ibuprofen. they might make you break out, but you could see how they effect everything as an experiment.
                I'm sorry... this is the most...well...this is nonsense... salamander6773needs to see a physician period, that will listen to him and he needs to truly discuss is symptoms. At this point, I think it is irresponsible to offert him diagnosis, meds or other remedy....

                  These are my updated symptoms. I also think it is a blood flow issue. I hope that I have not permanently damaged a vein or something... I will make an appointment this week to see someone.

                  numb, cold, purple, penis
                  unexplained severe fatigue
                  mental confusion, lack of concentration and memory
                  heaviness or pressure in groin
                  worse when sitting
                  frequent urination

                    I have reoccurring inflammatory response at the base of my penis from a bicycle injury. If I am too rough with things (sexual activity or pressure application), or if I try to ride a bicycle again, I end up with inflammation which causes my penis to shrink up and turn a little more unhappy in hue. (I assume it is something to do with vascular tissue injury.) Interestingly enough, I also become very irritable when I have this inflammation problem, I feel terrible, have low energy and generally feel hopeless with life. All I am saying is that it could be some sort of vascular flow response that is messing with his hormone levels; because it sounds similar to what I deal with. If I supplement with turmeric or another anti-inflammatory pill, like Motrin or Ibuprofen, the problem gradually goes away over two days when the inflammation/irritation underneath my pubic bone goes away and I don't feel like the sky is falling.

                    However, nobody knows. It could be prostate cancer or hypogonadism or something completely different. My suggestion was just something that he could maybe try in his idle time between doctor visits to test.

                    I apologize for the vague response before, but I also encourage you to keep an open mind: Remember that you are on a foreskin restoration forum. If you would have approached me four years ago about this topic, I would have laughed you out of the building.

                    Did a doctor diagnose this condition? Did the doctor say it was a vascular injury? Give you anything specific?

                    I ask because the way you worded your posts is very ambiguous regarding whether you have sought medical a diagnosis or not.

                      Salamander, I'll echo what others have said and recommend you see a doctor, especially as it sounds like your symptoms are progressing. They may recommend that you stop tugging-- and you probably should take a break-- but in the meantime, you can ask them to refer you to another physician who has experience with foreskin restoration. Part of being a good doctor (at least as I understand it) is being connected to others who have a range of experience. You can accept the first advice that's given to you while still making it clear that you'd like to remain tugging, though perhaps in a different capacity or with a different method.

                      And speaking of, what method are you using? I remember when I started tugging, I always became sick to my stomach within an hour of putting on the device. I never got a proper diagnosis, but I now realize I was using too much tension. I have no idea how that tension led to nausea, but hey, I'm here and making progress today.

                        Yeah, I am taking a break and things are slowly improving. Take 2 aspirins before bed and fish oil during the day which has helped alot. Still in the mud so to speak. Might not even see a doctor. The temptation is great to tug although I really need to heal.... I can tell the skin is damaged and needs a long break.

                        I am so close to getting more reliable flaccid coverage. I still have to retain, but I am very close to a big goal and it is killing me.

                          Take time off to reach your goal OR keep doing what you are doing and lose it all....
                          I see how this can be a difficult decision but I know that you are patient and willful.
                          If you've made it this far you understand the time required is not instantaneous.
                          Embarrassing as it might be to explain to a doctor your foreskin restoration, I also believe that you are a confident man who will survive the moment.

                          Good luck to you.
                          Listen to your body. Do what works for you. Best of health! Good luck!

                            UPDATE

                            almost lost my job again

                            severe anxiety symptoms unable to think at all or problem solve.

                            today almost passed out at work

                            remembered gingko biloba working for me in the past

                            now feeling almost 100 percent better

                            which leads me to the conclusion that i have a vascular injury that is cutting off blood to my brain

                            1 gingko a day will save me
