We can suspect Priapism if you have taken any meds related to Erectile Disfunction. If normal erection causes pain for you it can be due to nutrition deficiency due to B12.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

my name is matthew, two weeks ago i had a sudden case of priapism. i had an erection for 6 to eight hours before seeking medical attention. at ten hours the pain was intense and the e.r. doctor drained the erection from the upper right shaft area. since the procedure, my erections are only achieving about sixty to seventy-five percent of my usual full erection. my questions are, will I get my ability to achieve a full erection come back? are there any treatment options to help in recovery? what signs show permanent dysfunction, and how can I discern between a case of permanent E.D. as opposed to a temporary case?

I had to go to the ER this weekend because of an erection that lasted 22 hours. They had to put a bunch of needles in me to remove the blood that had built up. I returned to the ER yesterday because my shaft and head have turned black. The med on duty said this was normal due to the emergency treatment performed. Is this normal and what else should i expect in regards to symptoms after treatment for Priapism?
