default
Posted on Fri, 21 Jul 2017 in Urinary and Bladder Problems
Question: Last evening i was laying on my chest and when i got up i got a pull in my right scrotum and at night i couldnt sleep as my groin was also aching but not bad and i can walk with a little pain on the groin. I also noticed when i pull my foreskin up there's this flaky substance on the penis head. Today morning i tried getting an erection but i couldnt. Plus my penis looks like its shrinking.
Is this all related to last evening?
