Hello, hopefully someone can solve this mystery as I've seen 3 MD's and 4 urologists over the past 10 years (started at age 33). I have pain under the crown of my penis only during erections. It feels as sensitive as if you peeled a scab and touched the raw skin. It is bad enough that most erections are only 75% hard and a pain/pleasure battle ensues in which I often cannot achieve orgasm. You can literally see the penis recoil like a scared turtle (not as fast as the turtle though. ) I have been checked for all STD's. No curvature. Prostatitis has been ruled out since it's been 10 years. Doctors have chalked it up to referred (transferred?) pain. I recently had an endoscopy (?); a camera cable inserted to my urethra all the way to my bladder and was determined not have scar tissue or other issues. So I am back to square 1. I have a silicone lube (allergic??) but the pain even pre-dates that. Internet searches suggest it could be a pelvic floor muscle issue that agitate a nerve (?). Any help would be more than great.View Thread
Prostatitis (enlarged prostrate) can cause frequent urination. They would likely treat with Cipro (low dose for 60 days) or have you take ibuprofen daily to reduce swelling. A urologist can also scope you (endoscopy?) to see if you have issues.
Floxmax does work, but can inhibit erections. And it treats the symptoms, it's not a cure.View Thread
