Mysticdoc :

hello

Mysticdoc :

thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

how long you have this sensation going on?

Mysticdoc :

do you have any other medical condition?

Mysticdoc :

are you taking any medication on daily basis?

Customer :

No other medical conditions, no medication

Customer :

About 3-4 days

Mysticdoc :

ok penile discharge, problem with urination, back pain or groin pain?

Customer :

None...

Mysticdoc :

do you feel the vibration sensation all over the penis or on the tip?

Customer :

Just in the shaft, not at the tip

Mysticdoc :

did you have any violent sexual intercourse or vigorous masturbation in last 3-4 days ( beg your pardon for explicitness)?

Customer :

No problem, but 'no' have not.

Mysticdoc :

ok thank you

Mysticdoc :

see based on your description this does not seem to be a serious problem.

Mysticdoc :

thi is likely from the muscle stiffness or nerve irritation locally at the penile shaft area.

Mysticdoc :

this can either be from tighter undergarments, certain postural issues, or from long sitting job

Mysticdoc :

in these cases, the healing takes place spontaneously by avoiding any 'undue' pressure on the affected area.

Mysticdoc :

drink adequate fluids, wear loose garments if possible.

Mysticdoc :

not too tight at the waist.

Customer :

Any idea how long something like this lasts, how long to heal

Mysticdoc :

you should get better within a week or two.

Customer :

Great. Thanks for your help.

Mysticdoc :

I am glad you found my advice useful. Please click ACCEPT if you do not have any further question, so that I get rewarded for my time and effort. Thank you!

Customer :

In reviewing...your responses, just one last question. I did masterbate but not sure what vigiorous would be? Is there something else it could be?

Mysticdoc :

no, masturbation also can cause this--a common cause--i should not have used vigorous word as this is confusing. the act of masturbation itself can cause muscle strain 9 like using any other part of the body). but the healing will take place over next week or so. try to use 'lube in future' ( pardon the explicitness) to avoid this kind of symptoms

Customer :

Done. Thanks.
