Pins and needles in hand and difficulty thinking

User Profile
I am in need of medical expertise. My symptoms are as follows: pins and needles in hands and cold feet, exhaustion, weakness, and most importantly DIFFICULTY THINKING.

NOTE: I had been attempting to restore my foreskin for 2 years and may have done damage to my penis, it is numb and sometimes turns purple and gets cold. I used a stretching device but have stopped.

I think that there is a correlation between my symptoms and some damage I may have done to my penis.

I have been to the ER and a doctor but have not told them about my penis out of embarrassment. I just need help. The doctors told me that it is anxiety, but I do not believe them. Anyone have any ideas? What should I do? I work construction and have been hanging by a thread, being totally exhausted and unable to concentrate at all.

If I take an aspirin it seems to help a little bit, but it does not cure my symptoms.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Foreskin adhesions can lead to such discomforts. I would like you to consult a urologist and let them try to retract it or if needed consider it for therapeutic circumcision.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
