Hey man.. maybe I didn't read all the posts here.. but I tried.. and I didn't see anyone ask if you're on medication for your depression or anxiety.. most urologists even though are "Doctors" they don't know a lot about psychiatry.. or psychology for that matter.. reason I mention this.. is I suffer from the same problem.. a normal doctor will always tell you something you all ready know like.. "The scrotum is a muscle and it acts like one and will do that based on temperature and other things" -even a urologist will tell you that.. that's why they tell you not to worry about it.. well I'll get to what I was gonna say..
I suffer from schizophrenia (actually schizoaffective disorder.. but we'll stick with schizophrenia for now since most hear of that more often) It's a very hard disease to live with.. and I'll tell you that medication as well as anxiety will affect you this way.. you also say you're depressed.. do you take medication for any of this.. it may help or make things worse.. likely worse though.. I take medication.. for depression.. anxiety.. and anti psychotics.. and since there's no cure for this disease I'll probably be on meds for the rest of my life and struggle with health problems as well.. and die early too.. rather I kill my self at some point.. or die do to wear and tear on my body at an early age..
Take care of your self and try vitamins and supplements.. that will help with erections.. and blood flow.. and overall health to your reproductive organs..
You should also consider scheduling and seeing a psychiatrist along with a therapist to see if you can get your self under control.. the body will naturally scare you to misery like I assume is happening to you.. I can't be sure and I'm not a doctor.. just don't let anyone think your stupid or crazy for this.. research on this might not yield answer.. I tried my self years ago..
Psychiatrists know more than many doctors do.. and can possibly help you.. not that your crazy.. but depression will make you worry to the point of exhaustion and physical symptoms like you're explaining.. and anxiety will make depression even worse and vise versa.. normal doctors don't know all this like a psychiatrist would..
You're search for a psych doc may turn out to be hard.. you'll probably have to see a few and stick with one until they can get a grip of what you may be going through.. just don't see one that just prescribes medicine to get you out the door.. a good psychiatrist will talk back to you and give you tips and advice and refer therapists that can help with your scenario..
You should check out some male health places on the net.. there's exercises you can do to help this problem.. check the male health forums on the web.. scrotum stretches and cell regenerating (for the spermatic cords) "hanging" techniques will get you a long way.. and you may fall in love with male enhancement..
I don't recommend this.. but I have gotten in to this and wear weights on my testicles.. and do exercises in a hot bath while soaking.. this will help like someone else mentioned..
you can also pump your scrotum with pumps.. but this is only if you're wanting to venture this.. you may enjoy it.. and it becomes a regimen and will definitely help.. you'll hang like you wouldn't imagine
Most of all listen to your body.. and find out what is normal by a doctor who's willing to do research and may all ready know your answers..
Take care of your self.. get some help from a psyh doc.. and don't let your brain get the best of you.. you can over come this.. via different methods.. like I mentioned.. most will probably give hell for this.. but it works... It did for me.. but don't just listen to me.. take what everyone said to acount.. just don't let them get to you.. by telling you you're messed up. there's plenty of help out there.. your normal man.. you just may need some guidance even if you become to think it's your head causing this.. be patiant there's other that experience this your not aloneView Thread
