What could be causing my penile and perineum pain?

Dear Liz,

I have experienced pelvic pain for the past two and a half years. My symptoms are mainly burning in the perineum area and the penis. I do not have any post ejaculatory pain and in fact get some mild instant relief after ejaculation. I did see a pelvic floor PT for a year, but got minimal relief. My therapist found some tightness, but nothing significant and after a year, I don’t think there was much more she could do. There is one area where if I push deep enough on my perineum it does trigger a shocking feeling to my penis. Any idea of what is going on?

Sounds like Pudendal Nerve Entrapment or Pudendal Neuralgia. I would get to your GP and ask them to follow the NHS guidance and get a referral to a specialist.

Take Care
