A little history: I'm a 24 year old sexually active male. I got circumsized at 19 with no complications.
Since march of 2008, I had a problem.
I was about to have sex with my girlfriend and I was unable to get fully hard. This was the case for the whole day. The next day everything was fine. I went to see a doctor just in case and he prescribed viagra (which I didn't use) and told me not to have sex for several days.
About a week later, my gf and I were about to have sex when I noticed a numb patch on my shaft. I put an ice cube on that patch and didn't feel anything.
I freaked out, went to see a urologist. They diagnosed me with prostatitis, prescribed antibiotics, told me I would get better and not to worry. I also got tested for chlamydia and gonorrea. Second day of antibiotics I felt a burning sensation but it went away the same night, I figured the antibiotics were working.
Next time I went to get the results, I was negative for STDs but my shaft was still numb and it had a portion that felt like a different consistency than the rest of the shaft - and it was numb.
I went to see several more urologist. I got tested for prostatitis again (via finger) and was told I had a healthy prostate. I also got tested for peyronies disease and no calcium was found in my penis shaft.
However, my penis shaft has been getting more and more numb (and not just in the place that has that weird consistency which now sort of looks like whiter-colored half-ring, it doesn't extends all the way around). In fact, I don't feel pressure on my shaft at all. I still have mild sensation on my skin - I can feel scraping and temperature in most places on the shaft.
When I get stressed (like sleep deprivation, I feel my muscles (the ones controlling the penis retraction) contracting involuntary as well.
Also, even when I'm not doing anything sexual, my penis shaft still feels hot like it has a fever.
Any help would be appreciated, I was sent to go to a neurologist but the one I went to said he never heard of anything like that and just wanted to do some tests.
Please help! Does the hot shaft mean I still have some sort of infection? Do the involuntary spasms mean I still have something lingering in my prostate?
I'm not fond of your Urologist. It sounds like he's throwing pills at the problem and hoping he hits the mark. What you're describing sounds like an infection, I don't think your prostate would be involved in a numb spot in the shaft. I'd talk to your MD about getting a referral to a different Urologist or maybe even a dermatologist..
The doctor that prescribed me the viagra was not a urologist, it was general practitioner.
The urologist that I visited first was the same urologist that circumsized me. They used a sonagram stick thingie up my butt and took some pictures of my prostate. He said he saw white spots which he said was bacterial and prescribed me antibiotics.
After I came back to him still complaining about numbness, he felt the inconsistency in my shaft and sent me to another urologist that he said specialized in sexual health. He (second urologist) gave me an ultrasound (maybe sonogram? to rule out peyronie's disease) and measured my blood flow after giving me shot directly into my shaft to make me hard. He also gave me a blood test to make sure my hormones were in order; they were.
He told me everything was fine.
I wasn't satisfied with that answer and I called the first urologist so he can recommend me another urologist. The second urologist he recommended also scheduled me for an ultrasound (seemed much more thorough the second time around) and there was apparently no calcium build-up in the shaft. He told me there was nothing I could do and I should see a neurologist.
I don't know if I can post a picture (but I can send one privately) that shows the ring-like structure on my penis which is sometimes very pronounced while other times barely visible.
Well it sounds like your erectile function is working just fine and that's about all the Urologists can help you with. I'm not verribly versed about calcium deposits in the skin. It sounds pretty exotic. Like I said before I'd suggest you see if you can get a referral to dermatologist. Even if you can just get a consult to explain what's going on with this calcium build-up.
