911DOC :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

911DOC :

do you have any previous back injury?

911DOC :

how long have you had these symptoms?

Customer:

it comes and goes about a week

911DOC :

any injury to your back that you can remember? even in the remote past?

Customer:

i did hurt my back a month ago , it a weird feeling right now sitting on the beg typing it can feel it in my hip and goes down my leg

911DOC :

okay.... so my suspicion is confirmed.... at least a bit....

Customer:

it feels like it along my veins if i touch it not tender or nothing

911DOC :

your pain and symptoms are consistent with a slightly bulging or herniated lower back disk.

911DOC :

let me show you what i mean....

911DOC :

wait one second...

Customer:

i feel no pain in my back ? just along my inner leg like i said weird...ok

911DOC :

yup.... so if it's not a disc you should be checked for a hernia, but let me send you a link....

911DOC :

LINK

911DOC :

click on that, cancel the ad, and go to figure four... see if your pain is in any of the pictured areas.....

911DOC :

i am standing by...

Customer:

good info . i think it might be a hernia any info . i did the self exam it feels tender in one area . also i had an operation as a child for a hernia

911DOC :

okay....

911DOC :

do you mean a hernia or a herniated disc?

911DOC :

did the picture make sense to you?

Customer:

yeah , if i had a hernia would i have some of those symtoms

911DOC :

can you get in to discuss this with and get examined by your physician in a timely fashion?

Customer:

yeah

911DOC :

i think a lumbar disc problem or an inguinal hernia to be likely causes.....

911DOC :

if you have no further questions

911DOC :

then please do click 'accept'

911DOC :

so that JA will reimburse me for my time....

911DOC :

911DOC :

I am standing by...

911DOC :

i mean i am at your mercy...

911DOC :

i don't get paid unless you click accept....

911DOC :

so what is your question?

Customer:

ok it kinda hard to talk about but here it goes , in the last 6 months icannot last as long when having intercourse as before can any of these systoms be a factor to my issue.

911DOC :

sure... makes me think again about a lower spine disc problem....

911DOC :

a disc protruding down in the tailbone area can affect your ability to perorm....

Customer:

is there any fixes. lol

911DOC :

an MRI could evaluate you for this.....

911DOC :

yes, if a disc problem is causing this then something called a microdiscectomy can often fix the problem.... outpatient surgery on you back...

911DOC :

but the diagnosis needs to be made first.....

911DOC :

and the more likely thing,

911DOC :

is that at 39 your testosterone level could be low so you should get that checked by your physician, and if it is low, that can be fixed with medicine.

Customer:

ok cause sometimes it get weird tingling down my tailbone and anus ... i thought i had hemroids went to doctor

911DOC :

yes

Customer:

ok will get it checked , it weird sometimes it the middle of the night everything is fine , then when time to go , only a few minutes and done .. wierd

911DOC :

so, testosterone level check, examination of your spine by an orthopedist or your family doctor, maybe an MRI, and a hernia check. i think the answer is in those possibilities.

Customer:

would any of this make my penis sensitive ,,, heriated disk

911DOC :

;xcpt

Customer:

ok thanks

911DOC :

you are welcome.
