have an ongoing problem. my usual night sleeping pattern is to fall asleep for around 4 hours then get up with an erection that hurts (it feels like someone is sticking a needle in the middle of my penis). i urninate and my erection goes down. i go back to sleep and it happens again a short time later. this will go on, perhaps, 4 or 5 more times during the night. it goes like this, i dream, get an erection, have the pain, then get out of bed and pee very little, i go back to bed. it feels like my prostate is getting sorer and sorer through these constant erections until i wake up. my self diagnosis is that the valves that allow the blood to come into the penis must not work properly, because i end up being semi-erect all night (after my first few good hours of sleep). im probably wrong , but at this point in my condition, im desperate.View Thread
