Penile Neuropathy

If you are male (or the partner of a male), today's post from trenchdoc.com (see link below) may be a sensitive one. There are many causes of penile problems but it is also one of the hundred plus forms of neuropathy and can result from penile nerve damage. This short article puts the facts on the table and gives some ideas as to how you can go about reducing the effects to make life a little easier. It is certainly something that you shouldn't ignore and if you're feeling more than a little embarrassed, remember your doctor (male or female) has seen it all many times before. There are ways to help but it's also important to get checked out in any case, to exclude possibly more serious problems.


Symptoms, Causes And Treatment Of Penile Neuropathy
June 14, 2013 by Alan Liew


 Neuropathy is a condition that arises because of damage to the nerves. It is very common in people with other medical conditions such as diabetes, HIV, renal dysfunction and cancer. Drugs and medications can also play a big role in damage to the nerves. Neuropathy can affect any part of the body and cause serious issues.

Neuropathy is common in both men and women. One of the groups of nerves that should be shielded from damage is the penile nerves. Symptoms of neuropathy include tingling sensation, numbness, pain, burning and loss of sensitivity. When these five symptoms are felt in your sex organs, then seeing a medical practitioner may become necessary for you.

Damage to the nerves of your penis can result in sexual problems and erectile dysfunction. This may totally stop the erection of your penis. The penal nerves may fail to send the messages of pain, pleasure, heat or touch to the brain. In worst cases, a person may lose the penile sensitivity and suffer from reduced or diminished sexual desire.

Symptoms of Penile Neuropathy

We have identified the five typical symptoms of damaged penile nerves. However, penile neuropathy symptoms may differ from one person to another. The intensity of pain and loss of sensitivity may affect each man differently. Some may feel pain in penis while others may experience burning, loss of sensitivity, tingling and numbness.

Causes of Penile Neuropathy

There are different factors that cause neuropathy in the male sexual organs.

1. Poor blood circulation: The primary cause of the penile neuropathy in males is poor blood circulation that results in loss of oxygen in the nerve fibers.

2. Trauma: Another common cause of neuropathy in the penis is trauma, injury or physical damage to the nerves.

3. Infection and surgery: Infection and injury due to surgery can also cause damage to the penile nerves. Males who develop prostate cancer often have to go through a particular surgery that damages penile nerves.

4. Existing medical condition: Medical conditions such as diabetes, obesity and cardiac problems also affect the peripheral circulation adversely.

5. Penile enlargement techniques: Stretching equipment and jelqing techniques for penis enlargement can cause damages to the penile dorsal nerves. These methods apply pressure to the nerves of sex organs and cause long term damages.

Treatments for Penile Neuropathy

 
Treating underlying cause of neuropathy: Just like any neuropathy, the treatment for penile neuropathy depends on the cause of the damage. Neuropathy due to obesity, diabetes and heart ailments can be controlled with medication and healthy life style. A few modifications in the life style can improve the peripheral nerve condition and give respite from pain in penis.

Taking nutritional supplements for healthy nerves: There are nutritional supplements that can restore the health of nerves. Examples of these supplements are Omega 3 and 6 supplements. The Omega 3 is beneficial in improving signal transmission to the brain while the Omega 6 is necessary for the fatty nerve fibers called myelin sheath.

Taking herbal medications for improved flow of blood: According to some herbalists, bilberry, ginko and garlic are important herbal constituents that improve the flow of blood in the nerves of the male sex organs. These herbal medications provide effective treatment to regenerate and enhance the nerve fibers. There are special herbs containing alpha-lipoic acid that can be purchased for the sole purpose of healing the damaged nerves. Other nutrients that support the healthy circulation in the nerves are Vitamins A, C, D and E as well as L-arginine which are all available as supplements.

Taking Viagra for impotence and erectile dysfunction: there are special drugs for impotence and erectile dysfunction. These drugs revitalize the sexual functioning. One of the most well-drugs is Viagra. But before using this drug, you have to seek medical attention.

Applying penile creams for proper nutrition: There are penile health creams that help in supplying the damaged penile nerves with the nutrients and oil. These creams contain specific nutrition for the male organs. The bioactive compounds of these creams are good for the treatment of the 5 neuropathy symptoms – tingling, loss of sensitivity, pain, burning and numbness.

It is important to give consideration to the penile neuropathy promptly. Studies suggest that only a small percentage of penile neuropathy cases can be treated without any intervention. The majority of patients will suffer from the consequences if no treatment is instituted. So, it becomes important for patients to seek medical advice.

The good news about penile neuropathy in males is that it can be treated when given attention on time. Even those who go through prostate surgery can restore their sex life after getting necessary medications and treatment. Never treat your penile dysfunction lightly and seek the advice of an urologist as soon as the five symptoms of the condition manifest.

  4. Guys.. the best thing to use is a creme called Man1 Man Oil. It contains the protein, acetyl L carnitine, which repairs nerve endings and will restore lost feeling down there. I use it and my sex life is so much better as a result. It's safe too. Google it and see for yourself. Cheers!

  6. I have suffered moments of intense discomfort and pain in the penis glans combined with surge incontinence. It is easy to confuse this with the symptoms of infection. I have repeatedly had a urine test when this conditions arises and it is always negative. I put the whole problem down to one thing: STRESS and ANXIETY. At night I have found that a hot water bottle placed on the genitals helps to relieve the pain. By the way, I have been taking B12 tablets as well and I think they help.

  7. I began suffering pain/burning around the head of my uncircumcised penis roughly one year after getting a penile implant in 2014. No urologist has been able to explain why. It began about three months after I was diagnosed with neuropathy in the toes on both of my feet. Neither my neurologist, nor my internist believe I have neuropathy in my penis, however. My urologist has treated me for fungal/yeast infections, but that was not the problem. I am at wits end because any form of sex is very painful.
