Twitching Penis During Relaxation and Stretching

Kind of an odd one I know. After about 90 days of stretching and 30 days of daily relaxation/meditation I noticed that both during the pigeon stretch AND during the relaxation/meditation, the first half of the penis twitches uncontrollably. Sometimes for 10 seconds straight. During relaxation it hap...

Re: Where to start and how to find a good PT?

Sean, I have very similar symptoms as you. I have been tested for so many, many things over the past 15 years and nothing has ever come back abnormal (unless you listen to Dr. Feliciano Jr. in Manilla who many people discount completely). Some alternative diagnostics have shown 'low energy' through ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Thanks for the comments and thoughts. It feels like something that is muscular/tension/ energetic related. Yesterday it felt quite good for most of the day and after sex last night and sleeping a little later than usual, it immediately felt worse and today is very uncomfortable. It is always on edge...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

And all along I am doing all of the above minus the internal PT because it causes severe flares. What does that tell you? It tells me that there is a problem in that area with those muscles. What is causing it and what needs to be done to remedy the problem is where I am still undecided. Do I do th...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

What I understand from this forum is that my problem MAY be caused by muscles in the pelvic floor that are dysfunctioning. Trigger points may have developed, especially around the prostate. Steps to recovery include: Daily relaxation exercises Internal PT (not agreed on by everyone) Hot baths Stretc...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

The Chiro would say the same thing about an Internet board advising meditation and anal massage :) In all seriousness, when a professional looks you in the eye and says that it is highly likely that you have this and that, it is very hard to jut ignore them. I wanted an MRI of my lower back anyway. ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Well, got the results of MRI on lower back focused on S2. Your MRI results came back today with no sign of any mass or lesion. The problem is that such lesions are extremely difficult to locate even when using an MRI & even if one was located, there can be complications with the surgical removal of ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Temporary relief, but obviously a connection between those muscles and your symptoms. Yes, it's an interesting theory. Now to prove or disprove it. It may be completely wrong, but when you are in constant discomfort and someone with authority tells you that this is very likely to be the cause, well ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Burner, the sensation has been there to varying degrees always for 15 years now. Yeah, not fun. But there have been times where I could push it out of my head or where my sleep wasn't too badly effected etc. I did pursue many diagnoses and treatments over the years (but never did any of the relaxati...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

NetLynx, can I asked how your symptoms started? For me it was right at the moment if ejaculation. O e moment I'm normal and the next moment I had a sensation of needing to urinate coming from the tip of the penis. Where does your sensation originate from? And the PT you mentioned, is that internal o...

Re: PT

If one is flaring from PT then they should listen to their body and stop PT. Period This is the point where I am completely confused and it's really starting to mess with my head. All I want to know is that what I am doing everyday will eventually lead to a resolution of my symptoms. For me this fi...

Re: galvanic stim

But could it work by fatiguing the muscles an causing them to relax? In your earlier post you said that it appeared worth a try and 'harmless' so I'm now confused.

Re: galvanic stim

Any thoughts on this device?
http://www.skylarkdevice.com/pelvicms.html

And all of these devices are aimed at strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. Could it really be good for someone who already has overly tense pelvic floor muscles? Aren't they going to just become even stronger/shorter???

How do you connect the machine to the anal probe and where do you buy the anal probe? (the link given is dead)

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Samgg10, it's great to hear that you have been able to get over this condition. How often and for what duration each time did you do the relaxation and what technique did you use? Did you also do internal physical therapy? If so, how often did you do that? And did Alpha Blockers ever do anything for...
