Erectile dysfunction after heavy masturbation. What does this sound like?

So about 6 years ago while single I spent a day heavily masturbating (withholding orgasm .. edging , and using a tight grip), and at the end had one particularly long session. I was extremely horny and rock hard when suddenly my erection went rubbery. It was still the normal size, but soft. Not rigid. I thought I was just exhausted, so I finished while in this weird soft erect state. However, since then I suddenly do not have rigid erections. In the morning/my sleep If I feel like I have an erection, I put my hand down my pants, but its flaccid. I occasionally have a dull ache down the right side of my penis while flaccid though that s been happening much less. Have not had one single morning erection since that time. I ve been able to masturbate for awhile and get an erection, but its a different process that I m used to. I no longer get rigid early. Prior, I would begin to get rigid immediately and maintain rigidity even if i wasnt fully engorged. Like, the core would be rock hard. Now, the opposite occurs. It starts to engorge (very very very slow process) but is incredibly soft. Eventually I can masturbate and squeeze my PC muscles/thighs until I am fully erect and I d say about 75% rigid. And while that s decent, and good enough for penetration, it s still bendable and only happens JUST when I m about to orgasm. I ve been able to orgasm when soft because of this. My thigh/ groin get real sore from clenching. Takes a lot of work, there s no way any girl will be able to get me that far. I used to get rock hard just making out. I know there aren t Urologists on here, but I called for an appointment at a large hospital here in the city and they told me there was only 1 Dr at the hospital who did erectile dysfunction and there was a 2+ month wait. Does anyone know what this sounds like though? I ve scoured the internet and not found a good reason. To me, it seems like during that prolonged masturbation I either: damaged veins OR somehow kills off cells in my penile tissue . Both seem like there would be no cure. This is a brutal devastating thing for a young 25 year old male that is otherwise fit, thin, and healthy. I m afraid to begin a new relationship now... edit: I ve seen no improvement in the 2 months, even when I try going 4-5 months without masturbating.

Welcome to HCM.
Even though the history is long, the answer may not be as long.
Nothing usually gets damaged by masturbation. It is mostly in the mind.

Things needed are---

1. Counseling by a psychologist/ psychiatrist to get the confidence back.
2. A physical examination to check the organs.
3. Regular sex partner even though you may be afraid to start one- that will make a lot of difference.
4. Medicines to get better erections to given on demand.
