i woke up this morning with intermittent, shooting pain in the glans of my penis. I seem to be having some urethral discomfort as well. there is no discharge, and other than the occasional non-violent ****, i have had no sexual contact with anyone other than me. I have been with my wife for 20 years, and i have not strayed. my wife was a virgin when we got married - and i mean driven-snow virgin, trust me. and she isn't the straying type. we have both been insanely busy for a month now, so no sex other than oral. (her to me). she has never had a cold sore, and i have never had ( to my knowledge) ANY kind of STD. neither has my wife. we have excellent health care, so that isn't an issue. there is some history of prostatitis and prostate cancer in my family, but most people who have it are in their 70's. I am only 42. I'm in reasonably good health, and i have regular orgasms. i've always had difficulty initiating urination, but usually no trouble going once i start. there is no pain during urination. I underwent a discectomy about 3 weeks ago, and seem to be recovering well. i have been feeling a slight malaise and slightly feverish, and the pain in my glans feels oddly reminiscent of how i feel when i'm about to get a cold sore. that was this morning. now the pain has diminished somewhat, but there is no change in the physical appearance of the glans. i have no discharge from the urethra, and tested negative at the doctor for bacterial infections. The doctor seems to think i may have already been infected many years ago, and that my recent surgery may have weakened my immune system. But i've been feeling great, so who knows...anyway. i started anti-virals immediately, and now i'm sitting around trying not to be paranoid. i wouldn't mind knowing if anyone else has ever gotten herpes late in life without being sexually involved with someone other than their spouse, cause i gotta tell you, i haven't done anything with anyone that i need to be worried about. no straying. has anyone out there had prostatitis, and did it cause pain in the glans for you? right now i'm hoping for that, because the alternative is the Immaculate Infection.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
