Question: The feeling is like a tingle or vibration


 hawkIII - Sun Nov 11, 2007 1:42 pm

I am a 37 year old man and I have been experiencing a strange sensation in my penis and right testicle for no reason. It feels like it is either tingling or vibrating. I will find myself reaching for my cell phone because it kind of feels like it when it is on vibration. It usually occurs out of nowhere I can be sitting at home or standing at work and it just happens. I am a pack a day smoker and drink 2-6 beers a day. I have a pulled back right now and the only medicines I am taking flexeril & Advil. (This was happening before my back started hurting.) I have a doctor's appointment on November 19th. I was just curious if this is something common or something to be concerned about?

User avatar Hi HawkIII,

This may be due to something pushing on the nerve supplying sensation to the penis and testis. Possibilities include a hernia, muscle strain/tightness, or an enlarged lymph node. It may also simply be some simple irritation of the nerve due to a previous (even unnoticed) injury.

Seeing your doctor is a good idea to see if there is a treatment to help this resolve.

Best wishes.
