painful erections at night
amrts posted:
have an ongoing problem. my usual night sleeping pattern is to fall asleep for around 4 hours then get up with an erection that hurts (it feels like someone is sticking a needle in the middle of my penis). i urninate and my erection goes down. i go back to sleep and it happens again a short time later. this will go on, perhaps, 4 or 5 more times during the night. it goes like this, i dream, get an erection, have the pain, then get out of bed and pee very little, i go back to bed.
it feels like my prostate is getting sorer and sorer through these constant erections until i wake up.
my self diagnosis is that the valves that allow the blood to come into the penis must not work properly, because i end up being semi-erect all night (after my first few good hours of sleep). im probably wrong , but at this point in my condition, im desperate.

Have you found solutions or diagnosis? I've been to several doctors and they all say everything is fine. Going to gastroenterologist next as I also have some different digestive things occurring than typical. I have the symptoms you describe to the exact time frame 4 hrs then about every hour until its time to wake up. Please report back if you have any thing that has helped. Thanks!

I have same condition/symptoms as amrts and cantsleep. I haven't gotten any satisfactory treatment. I've been bounced back and forth between urologists and psychologists several times and its been rather humiliating. Recently I have at least discovered that there is an acknowledged diagnosis. Its called Sleep Related Painful Erections (SRPE). There are a number of online references and suggested treatments. Most of the work seems to have been done in Europe. Its been a relief to me at least to see that I'm not the only one with this condition. I'm embarking on another round of seeking treatment and its helpful to bring the online articles with me so the doctor doesn't look at me like I'm crazy, at least.
