Loss of sensation

11 yrs. ago I had a nervous breakdown which manifested in a physical sensation of something like a light tingling in my head and spreading over my body. The result was that there was a loss of the pleasurable sensation in my penis and my skin generally and specifically sensitive areas and it became more difficult for me to have an orgasm. There was also no more feelings of pleasure associated with the orgasm just a feeling of release which has decreased the quality of my sex life. I tolerated this for years because I thought I could live without these sensations but now it has become a bother. This happened before I took any form of medication and at a time when I was under a LOT of stress. I was 21. I would like to feel how I used to. Even though I had seen a doctor who had treated me for depression I noticed that these sensations never returned. I had been net surfing and came upon the condition of 'Paresthesia' on this site as closest to matching my symptoms but I am not sure if it is correct or if it could d be triggered by a nervous breakdown. Could you help diagnose what's happened to me and how I can be better?

Hi Atlosses, You might want to compare your complete set of symptoms and signs to the list of such symptoms, signs and co-correlates we have on the b12 forum. There are a wide range of neurological, neuropsychiatric, mood and personality changes that can occur with the b12 deficiencies including: reduced libido - loss of sexual desireloss of orgasmic intensityunsatisfying orgasmsinability to orgasmloss and/or change of genital sensations - "gloved" loss of sensationburning genital skin sensationunable to become arousedreduced testosteroneerectile dysfunctionlow sperm countpoor sperm motilityPoor sperm qualityZero sperm countas well as depression, paresthesias, numbness, change in sensation in skin generally, and a whole lot more. These can occur despite normal or high serum cobalamin levels and in the absence of any hemotological signs. Most or all of these symptoms can often be substantially elliminated with proper supplementation of both active b12s and cofactors.http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=142347#post142347

  • I take Paxil now and again but these symptoms occurred before I took these meds and even when I am off the meds for months I still have this numbness. I am going to look into the Vitamin B12 and co-factors supplementation some more. Thanks so far for the response. I really appreciate it in light of this sensitive matter. I don't know about the cellphone use. I was using cellphone now and again but I'm sure I was around people using it as how can I avoid that? But the first thing I am gonna look into is the Vitamin B12 meds.

I don't know about the cellphone use. I was using cellphone now and again but I'm sure I was around people using it as how can I avoid that? But the first thing I am gonna look into is the Vitamin B12 meds. Hi Atlosses, Just be sure to spend some time to read on the b12 forum before you order. We have found that only about 1/5 of the brands of methylb12 are very effective and that some have no effect at all and the rest are not very effective. Then there is the "how" to use the correct brands. One method is 15 times as effective as some other methods. If you use the promo code RED843 you will receive $5 off your first order at www.iherb.com and I will receive the same off my next order (often $300-$500 at a whack) before credits. I'm a very good customer there because their prices have been very good and their service excellent and they have all the right stuff. What we have found is that there are the "basic" cofactors like a,d,e,c, b-complex, calcum/magnesium/minerals, zinc etc. Then there are the critical "showstopper" cofactors whose effect may be huge in various combinations and make the active b12s much more effective. Read up on these things and then decide whether you want a to go for maximum proability or the minimum test of hypothesis. In general I would suggest the basics and the showstoppers like twice a day on b-complex and 50mg+ on zinc and methylfolate and hold off on the other showstoppers until you see how things go on the basics. The methylfolate can be as critical to having any effectiveness as the active b12s themselves. In any case, do some reading and ask some questions of folks and then make your order is my recomendation.

But the first thing I am gonna look into is the Vitamin B12 meds. Hi Atlosses, I want to say one thing regarding the cell phone hypothesis. First, it's not really testable without moving to the wilds and living at an 18th century existance level without any sources of electromagnetic radiation near you and even that isn't a full escape. And secondly there isn't anything you can do about it anywhere on eath to escape all the radio waves etc. I suppose you might be able to get a Faraday cage suit that you can ground and convert your house to a Faraday cage living an 18th century life inside but it isn't very practical. At least the b12 hypothesis is testable and provides a means to cure. A significant pecentage of those trying the b12 hypothesis have significant effect on symptoms. Nobody on earth can escape the electromagnetic radiation we pour forth so it isn't a very practical answer for anybody. Good luck.

The type of feeling your getting sounds similiar to mine, but I have tested for b12 and I have ruled that out. If anyone else has any suggestions I'd like to hear it. As for me personally I was starting to wonder if it was peripheral neuropathy and I tested for diabetes and also celiacs disease since I had some stomach problems, but neither of those were positive either. I heard from a doctor sometimes prostasis can be mild enough not to show up and the only true test was to use antibiotics and see if that helped, but it didn't. I even talked with a neurologist and had an mri done on my back, which showed nothing. I was thinking it might've been something like ms which can cause loss of sensitivity at different areas. My Urologist found a tiny testicular cyst, but he didn't think it was relevant. I also have a vein on the penis and I asked my doctor if it were a vericose vein which I have a family history of, the vein was a little curly like, but very small and my doctor thought it could've been a very tiny varicose, but still not explain the discomfort I feel or the lack of sensitivity. Your welcome to try all these things that I've looked into, plus the b12. If you do find something even if it's listed i'd like to know what the diagnosis comes out to be. I can't help but feel we may have the same thing. If anyone has any suggestions for me I'd appreciate it. I've also had terrible memory and concentration, but I've been with a psychologist for years without anything even coming close to working. Also permanent nasal congestion and lots of gas. I can't help but think my mood and my sensation loss are related.

I can't help but think my mood and my sensation loss are related. Hi Gregt, ALL of those things are b12 related regardless of serum level. There is absolutely NO TEST that can "rule out" functional b12 deficiency except a trial of b12. And that isn't as simple as it sounds. Active b12s are not the same as the usually given inactive b12 (cyanob12 in USA, hydroxyb12 in UK). I was dying on 1000mcg of cyanob12 each day. To further complcate it, out of 10 methylb12s tested by hypersensitives, only 2 of 10 worked excellently and 1 didn't work at all. I have recovered from all of these things, 100% in most cases. I have full normal feeling back in most of my body except my feet, my stomach and intestines are healed, my neuroptathies are mostly healed. All the things in blue point at functional b12 deficiencies no matter what any test you could be given says. Come on over to http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=9948&page=160and read up backwards from the end on the realities of functional b12 deficiencies and compare your symptoms to the list, all of them in addition to what you listed here, and see if they appear to be a match. A short trial with just a few of the supplements can test the hypothesis. You will probably do much better by listening to people who have actually healed or are healing problems such as yours as compared to doctors who believe in an antiquated mythology about b12 which will leave you getting woerse and worse as the years go by.

  • There was also no more feelings of pleasure associated with the orgasm just a feeling of release which has decreased the quality of my sex life. Search for "ejaculatory anhedonia". Recently some guys are showing varying degrees of improvement, and one maybe a cure, using a Twinlab's Gaba Plus.

  • This feels like the saddest day of my life, just reading over all your posts and I fear I may have lost my best friend.A few years ago I read on the internet about physical exercises that can help grow your penis size. One of these exercises included milking your penis outwards to fill up your blood vessels and increase pressure hence stretching the vessels. This would help your shafts thickness.Since then I have been casually exercising this technique every now and then in the shower (fairly rarely actually). 3 days ago I was doing this not more aggressively than usually when suddenly I felt a popping sensation. No pain. Then my entire penis went numb.Today, 3 days later, my entire penis and testicles are still nearly entirely numb and I can't feel anything with it. My testicles are not as sensitive, and I can't detect hot from cold or anything else with my shaft and head. I can only feel a slight pain if i pinch the skin really hard.I can still masturbate and ejaculate (twice since last sat), but it's not the same without me feeling it. Is there a chance this is permanent? what can I do to help?Thank you.

  • Has anyone yet had any luck having their symptoms of a numb penis remedied? I have been able to feel almost nothing in my little guy for nearly two years. I can sense hot and cold water, and when a neurologist pricked the guy with a toothpick like instrument, I nearly jumped. However, there is no sensual feeling, pretty much no sense of touch. I used to be able to get full erections, but I no longer can. If I try to have sex, even with Viagra, my penis goes limp in the vagina because I can't feel anything. If this problem can't be solved, I fear I will never be able to make love, therefore never fall in love. I'm only 26. I've had a spinal MRI done, I've had my testosterone levels checked. I went to see a neurologist, but I was told that there were no tests to image those nerves. The only option that I've found for that is the experimental new test called an MRN, which I would have to fly to California to have conducted. All of the doctors that I've seen are trying to tell me that it's in my head. It's not in my head! I would do absolutely anything in the world to have this fixed.

Hi Sadsadboy, Once again I will bring this discussion back to methylb12. The reason is that loss of penile sensation can be caused by b12 deficiency neuropathy. The right active b12s (brand is critical and how you take them and what you take them with, if you want to heal, neurological healing is tricky) and so on can heal those neuropathies and restore penile sensation. It did for me. http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=62327 has the active b12 basics. http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=234628&posted=1#post234628 has all the discussion of active b12s.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • 11 yrs. ago I had a nervous breakdown which manifested in a physical sensation of something like a light tingling in my head and spreading over my body. The result was that there was a loss of the pleasurable sensation in my penis and my skin generally and specifically sensitive areas and it became more difficult for me to have an orgasm. There was also no more feelings of pleasure associated with the orgasm just a feeling of release which has decreased the quality of my sex life. I tolerated this for years because I thought I could live without these sensations but now it has become a bother. This happened before I took any form of medication and at a time when I was under a LOT of stress. I was 21. I would like to feel how I used to. Even though I had seen a doctor who had treated me for depression I noticed that these sensations never returned. I had been net surfing and came upon the condition of 'Paresthesia' on this site as closest to matching my symptoms but I am not sure if it is correct or if it could d be triggered by a nervous breakdown. Could you help diagnose what's happened to me and how I can be better? What's up atlosses, I don't really have an answer or suggestion for you at the moment but wanted to let ya know your not the only one bro. My story and symptoms are very similar to yours. I just started reading up and looking into neck injuries and other experiences from other people when I came across yours.. Right away I thought to myself Ok good i'm not crazy there's other people with similar experiences/problems as to mine. I am 21 now n for me started about 2 years ago when I was 19.. I had a lot goin on in my life at the time between start'n out college, a gf and family troubles and I found myself starting to flip out and I was having I guess what you would call anxiety attacks.. I always was a very happy n excited kid and w/ all the excitement of college/stress and everything else goin on I noticed I had this thing/nervous twitch I would say.. whereas I would carry my stress in my neck area and would always twitch my head forward and or crack my neck as like a stressor.. in reality this obviously was the start to my troubles.. I'm telling ya this cause i just wanted to see if maybe you went through something like this as well or not and if not you maybe someone else has and can respond to this.. I dn't really remember how it quite all happened, all happened so fast just remember stressing a lot cracking and twitching my head/neck and over the course of time like a few months my neck progressively got worse with pain and aches.. soon after it wasn't just a physical pain anymore i was getting depressed over it and instead of getting better things just kept getting progressively worse like i kept putting myself in a deeper in deeper whole.. i began feeling really weird, my head/brain felt clouded, my vision got blurred and i couldn't think straight or focus, i could just feel my body changing and not just a chemical imbalance due to depression but over time like you were talking about it led to lack of getting aroused or even wanting sex. I didn't want to do anything.. it was like I couldn't get excited over anything anymore or get that adrenaline rush to my head and rest of my body.. like i became completely numb, couldn't really feel anymore not just with some physical things but emotionally/mentally as well.. I didn't want to do anything was always tired and all the time used to love working out at the gym and taking care of myself/upkeep on my body n I let go a little bit over the past two years.. I wanted to feel that way but ever since i hurt my neck i just cant get it back.. I used to be such an exciting kid n was so happy n excited about life n because i let stress n anxiety get to me i ended up here.. all i want is that young good feeling back again.. my friends can all see tht i've changed, i've thought about death before, never would have thought about that b4 this incident.. I've been to a counseler, a doctor, have been on depression/anxiety meds, a physical therapist for my neck.. things over the past 6 months have slowly gotten better day by day and continue to get better day by day but i just feel completely different as a person still like things won't ever be the same n i'll never get that feeling/excitement/rush/drive/adrenaline whatever ya wanna call it back again.. i read somewhere else i guy felt a personality shift and i'm experiencing that as well which is the worst feeling.. it's like the last 2 years of my life have been ***l and is such a downer to think about cause these are suppose to be some of the best most exciting years of one's life ya know 20, 21 in college.. Idk I have written you a book already just so many symptoms/experiences and i wanted to get it all out there to see if anybody else has been there and what they did to get better. So yes man a nervous breakdown you can call it but i know it was me hurting my neck over time due to the stress/anxiety of a nervous breakdown.. Good luck to you man and thanks for your post.. I wasn't sure if it was just the sexual drive/sensation thing goin on or if it is other things as well.. Let me know if anything I said above you can relate to man..

I'm 21 now and started couple years ago at 19.. due to anxiety attacks and stress with a lot goin on starting college, a gf and family troubles i found myself with this nervous twitch with my head pushing forward n not keeping good posture and also cracking my neck a lot.. Over time of a few months my neck was killing me, only got worse and then wasn't just a physical pain but started to become depressed over it and started feeling weird like a chemical imbalance and my whole body felt different.. I didn't feel like me.. my vision blurred, my brain felt clouded, couldn't think straight or focus, had no motivation to do anything anymore.. was like i couldn't get excited or that adrenaline rush to my head and throughtout my body anymore like i was becoming numb physically and emotionally, like i heard someone say a personality shift is a good way to describe it.. I'm always cranky and pist off cuz i just want that good feeling back again but cn't find it.. also lessened sex drive and arousal as you said has been a problem.. I've been to a counseler, doctor and physical therapist for my neck.. things have gotten a bit better the last 6 months but still somethings off i'm still nowhere I used to be/feel.. suppose to be the best years of my life being 20, 21 and i've been in this rut.. Cn't figure it out !! It's depressing and frustrating.. and all over stress or a nervous breakdown as u said and me cracking my neck did this I can't believe I let myself do this to myself.. Sorry, wrote a book here but want if not you others maybe to hear this and maybe respond if they can relate.. Good luck to you bro and let me kno if you have experienced any of these things as well ..

  • It's been a while since this post was made and also the last reply, but I am yet another person suffering from similar symptoms. Most notably the loss of sexual sensation. I also have permanent nasal congestion, as well as neck problems (which has been diagnosed with a prolapsed disc) which are two symptoms mentioned here so far. Furthermore, there is the mental symptoms of depression, cognitive decline and such that I have since somewhat recovered from. Still, the main problems remains. I have also tried Methyl-B12 to no success. A neurosurgeon I went to suggested Tethered Cord Syndrome, but a second opinion suggested otherwise. I am not sure what is going on. Like everyone else here, I truly wish a solution can be found. I would give almost anything to recover from this.
