It's probably the connection you've guessed is associated, anxiety.
Anxiety is the number one cause of urinary symptoms, which can include urgency, frequency, and even bladder control. And it's possible you may have just been so exhausted that your body did not wake to respond to the signals your brain was sending indicating you needed to use the bathroom.
Hopefully it will be a one-time occurrence. It would be easy to say "reduce your stress" but it sounds like that's not a realistic option. So managing your adaptive response to stress may be the next best option. That, and making sure to go before you go to sleep.
I know you may not think drinking more fluids is a good idea, but don't deprive yourself and become dehydrated either.
You may find some relief in the stress around intimacy if your wife, regardless of her personal interest level in sex, can help you out with yours. It may also be worth a discussion to find out what about sexual contact isn't interesting to her. There's likely a root element to her feelings, whether discomfort, energy level, sensitivity to smells, or something else. Sex does not mean intercourse. You can still be affectionate.View Thread
Men don't get interstitial cystitis (extremely, extremely rare).
Parasites from seafood, particularly shellfish like fried clams, can lead to strange sensations like a sharp pinch at the tip of your penis, but this parasite also usually generates an oversensitivity to touch in your crotch, elbow joint, underarms, and back of knees, itching or prickly feeling. It is not a radiating pain, nor does it induce spasms. Parasites do not go away on their own.
Magatame's symptoms are not typical of common seafood parasites. If not an infection, they sound more like early kidney stone formation where the grit is causing chronic irritation.View Thread
A perpetual pain like this is most likely describing one of three things. First is a yeast infection. This can occur spontaneously or be transmitted from a sexual partner. It may have no physical symptoms other than a prickly sensation.
Second, it can be a small physical injury, something that is being repeatedly irritated by daily masturbation, although it may not be painful during masturbation. Something like a small tear in the urethra, or a small tear in the fascia connecting the head of your penis to the shaft, may not have an amplified painful sensation during masturbation, but develop a persistent soreness afterwards.
Third, it may be an allergy, whether to fabric, lubricant, food, or something else. This can be trickier to isolate.
There are still other things that could be the cause, but I have listed three in the order of likelihood based solely on your description.
Cranberry juice and probiotics will not likely make any difference. It's very unusual for men to get a UTI (only three specific reasons), so since you haven't reported any of those reasons I wouldn't associate it.View Thread
There are probably half a dozen things. The description is insufficient to evaluate. A physical examination will likely be required to make an accurate determination.
It's important to keep in mind that the location of the pain is not always pointing to the source of the pain, particularly on the penis. Because the nerve density is so high, many pain sensations appear to come from the most distal point of the nerves (tip of penis), but this is sometimes false. Even an internal cause can feel like an external pain sometimes.
This is why a visit to the urologist is probably necessary.
While it's good that the sensation is not perpetual, it does indicate some issue, whether circulatory, infectious, dermatologic, physical, or other. It could be as simple as an latex or lubricant allergy that makes some part of his skin sensitive, to early formation of kidney stones that the grit that has made it to the tip of his penis is only felt during the start of erections.There are numerous other possibilities that area much easier to assess with a physical examination of the area.View Thread
It is fairly easy to permanently damage your penis by pumping. This warning is supposed to be included with your purchase. Pumping to increase size relies on deliberately injuring your penis with the hope that it will recover. It doesn't always. Pumping as prescribed by a urologist for erectile issues follows a very strict protocol and does not exceed the normal size of your penis when used for this purpose.
Please see a urologist right away to determine the extent of the injury. If there is anything that can be done, it has to be done right away.View Thread
Wesco, it is my intent to be very DISpassionate, and tell it like it is. I am not here to hold hands or make anyone feel better. I provide possible insights, not feel-good counseling. The answer is to always see the doctor, and arming people with information can speed them towards solutions faster than being sweet.View Thread
Sometimes the external creams are insufficient, especially for a chronic infection, and you may need a systemic pill that addresses it from the inside out instead of the outside in. Try AZO, and ask your doctor about trying to treat candida with a pill. It may make you feel worse for a week before you feel better if that's what is going on, as there is some toxicity when the fungus die.View Thread
I don't know what either of those things is wescoboots, so I would have to say no.
I am not a doctor, although I am nationally board certified in one branch of Chinese medicine. I am the WebMD Ambassador for the Urology Exchange. There are 13 urologists working in the office adjacent mine.View Thread
Anxiety or worry about the situation alone is enough to change erectile function. But it does not typically cause pain.
I'm glad you went to the doctor, but a general practitioner knows about as much about penises as you do about exoplanets. There's no reason you should have needed a UTI test unless you did one of two things 1) stuck something inside your urethra, or 2) wear soiled underwear.
There are a large number of things that can cause pelvic pain. One of the things that worries me is that you say you're deliberately holding urine. That's really not at all a good idea.
I am guessing that the first doctor was not a urologist, and if not, your parents should take you to a urologist to specifically find out what it causing the pain. It's possible you have a minor hernia, you could be forming kidney stones or bladder stones, you might have some pelvic floor dysfunction, there might be a small fissure in your colon, or you could have injured yourself doing some sport or other activity.
The more you worry, the more likely you are to have urinary and erectile symptoms creted by the worry.
Please, please, please tell your parents that the pain has continued and that you need to see a urologist. It is never normal or appropriate to have pain in this area of your body.View Thread
