It would seem to be the case that PN can cause a wide range of different symptoms. In many articles it clearly states the "foreign object" in the rectum/anus as being a common symptom although most sufferers posts regarding their PN condition do not seem to cite this particular symptom. For me I have this feeling ,as if there is a tennis ball up there which is causing either a horrendous numbness and extreme discomfort, or aching pain with throbbing lower back pain plus discomfort in my penis. I am due to see Dr Greenslade in Bristol on 25th july, I am praying to finally get a positive diagnosis for PN or PNE so that I can finally get treatment and hopfully relief from this utterly life robbing syndrome. Although I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy it would be very helpful to me if I knew I was not the only man in the world with this curse.This has totally isolated me, nobody seems to understand and It's made me feel like a complete, and very lonely freak.
I would be so grateful if someone could reassure me a little that I'm not.
