I am not sure if this is a bowel or prostate (or other) issue, but I would appreciate any input.
Several years ago (5-6), I began an exercise program involving a stationary bike. I gave it up within a month because it caused my groin area to go numb. Since then, a small area between my legs, in the approximate area of my prostate (in front of anus, but behind scrotum) experiences uncomfortable pressure/numbness/pain if I have not had a bowel movement for a while, or when I hold my legs together for extended periods of time (like while sleeping on my side).
I do not have any symptoms of prostate problems that I know of. I have a strong urine stream, no problems with frequency of urination or pain during urination. I have strong erections and do not have difficulty with dysfunction in that area.
It doesn't seem to sound like a prostate problem and I don't know of any colon issue that would cause it, but that's why I'm here, to see if there is any cause I could be missing. I'm hoping it's just minor nerve damage, but wanted to confirm that this wasn't a common symptom of a larger issue.
