I don't know if back nerves are causing this problem but I was wondering if anyone else had a particular symptom associated with their back.
the symptom is that of numbness in the lower bladder/PC muscle/prostate area leading to no internal male sexual sensations. I am suspiscious of L5-S1 and pinched or compressed nerves but here's the strange thing: I don't have any problem with bladder control or motor control. I also do not have numbness in any other area. maybe cauda equina syndrome? if you have the same problem please reply!
numbness can be associated with nerve problems. i have large slipped disc in neck and thorasic and it causes my privite areas to go numb, and lose sensation. have you talked to your doctor and see what they have to say? they might be able to help
michelle - your neck and thoracic problems were causing your loss of sexual sensation? do you have any lower back problems or any other issues? that's very interesting that it is your neck. can I ask which disks? I always assumed that problems in the pelvis were due to lower back problems.
keith - do you have a lack of penile sensation at all? I have all of my penile sensation, it's just my prostate area sensation that is the problem. I am on prozac, which is notorious for sexual problems, but I've never seen anyone else with prostate numbness. I've seen penile and vaginal numbness, and I've seen erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation as symptoms, but never prostate numbness. I don't have any problems with erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. I am still suspicious of the prozac as the culprit, but I just havn't seen anyone else with the same symptom. when you say "it" you mean the prostate right?
Aggie, this could definitely be caudia equina. Are you seeing a doctor currently? If not, you should do so immediately. Caudia equina is nothing you want to mess with. It would be better to have it be nothing and waste trip to the doc than have something seriously wrong.
yes i have hyperactive lordosis in lumbar slipped disc in c5,6-7 that is moderatley compressing on spinal cord also bulging disc in t7, t11-12 and slight conpression. 3 hemigiamas(tumore in the vertebral body,scoliosis in thoracic and cervical, spondyliosis in thorasic t7,11-t12. degenerative disc disease in c6-7, and t11-12.and it still causes loss of sensation now and numbness 24/7.
yes aggie to be serious i do. i think i already posted that to you but will again.
i have at my cervical level c5,6, and c7 has large herniated disc that is compressing on my spinal cord as well as t7,t11-12 has disc bulging with slight compression. i also have ddd, spondyliosis, scoliosis of the cervical and thorasic. i didnt mean to make you angry. if i did i apologize and am very sorry. as for numbness i have it constantly in my feet. off and on in my hands, on top of my shoulders, down back straps, inner thighs, thumbs, middle fingers and pinkies. i also from time to time have it affect my face. as for surgery as i have posted before i have medicaid and where i live in tampa their is only one doctor that takes it and hes a quack who talks and compares you to his 70 yr old dad. so im a work in progress and trying to find a new neuro or ortho who excepts my insurance. or going to hospital and staying untill i get the proper treatment. i also have numbness of the tail bone and buttocks. im numb now practically everywhere from sitting to long.
hey michelle thanks for the response. I wasn't angry, I was just curious if you thought that the cervical spinal problems were causing the genital numbness because I had never heard of that connection.
anyone else have the same problem I talked about in my original post?
