Odd Situation - Groin Pain

    Alright, so this a pretty odd situation I find myself in. I'm almost certain it's TMS, but I came back here for help confirming this.

    So a little back story first. I've got the classic Type T personality. I realized all this about 3 years ago when I developed epididymotis in my left testicle. Long story short it became a chronic problem, tried everything under the sun until I stumbled upon this site which saved me from a life of misery. After the initial struggle of belief I convinced myself that my testicle/groin pain was a psychosomatic manifestation, and slowly but surely it simply went away.

    I still had many other TMS symptoms I still struggle with off and on to this day, but it's so much better knowing that it's something I can control.

    Anyways, so recently I decided to partake in something known as Penis Enlargement excerises. I did a lot of research, and had a strong forum community support. Long story short, I went way too hard the first day and developed some bad soreness down there. The forum says so big deal, just rest until it heals. Make sure to do it right and easy next time.

    Nine days later and the soreness has decimated in my penis, but now I have a tingling nerve pain coupled with sharp pains. The feelings are constantly changing location and intensity. And ice come to realize that 1st times it's the exact same nerve pain I felt back when I had testicle/groin pain before!

    I've almost 90 percent convinced myself Its TMS.
    1) The pain differs and moves around.
    2) The pain is similar at times to pain I proved was TMS before.
    3) It is more intense when I'm in situations that bother me.
    4) My other TMS symptoms such as TMJ are barely existent.
    5) I just got a new job the same day that I decided to try this routine. (Three years ago my problem started right when I
    got a new job as well).
    6) I worry about it constantly, and have a hard time not dwelling on it all day.

    All this also stems from psychological issues I have sexually and lack of confidence. Performance axiety kind of thing.

    I'm almost certain whatever soreness I caused myself in my penis/groin area has healed. But my subconscious has found a convient way to hijack something and turn it into a TMS distraction. Stresses of a new job, talking to a new girl, sexual frustration all being things that my brain is trying to protect me from.

    Anyways that's what I'm going through now. I just wanted help from some fellow TMS folks on convincing me this pain is psychosomatic.

    The PE forum people keep telling me I'm fine and just give it more time to heal, but i feel like that may be opening up a window of sitting around feeling sorry for myself resting when I fact I'm not getting any better.

    Sweetheart, I'm totally confident this is tms. Everything about it stacks up including the way that you achieved it. Two thoughts on the penis enlargement aspect.

    First, classic tms intensity from the get-go. Too much, too hard.
    Second, rather than penis enlargement I would recommend you study some tantra. That will give you such a grounding in how you can use sexuality to heal and simulataeously it will help you resolve the sexual issues you face. It is such a robust, time-honoured, juicy and pleasurable approach to life and self-esteem that everyone would benefit from a dash of it.

    While we're at it, size actually doesn't matter at all to women. Sensitivity and awareness beat that in every single way. Women know when you are disconnected with them during love-making and it leads to us placing shells around the heart. We will forgive most things so long as you are with us and not lost in some porn-induced fantasy. From experience I am happy to say that one of the best lovers I ever had was a man with a small penis but it hit my g-spot like a dream every time.

    Thanks for the insight. It's definitely TMS, it's just going to take some time for it to dissipate completely. I'm just going to work on my improving my pysch, excercising, etc like I was before this issue came up.

    Not so fast, brain. This distraction isn't going to work on me.

    So I've pretty much convinced myself it's TMS and not much to worry about. Then today I had a rough go swallowing a vitamin capsule, and it got stuck in my throat a little bit.

    After lunch now I've got this pain in my throat/chest like something is stuck even though I've chugged water and am breathing fine so I'm sure nothing is wrong. Low and behold, I have absolutely zero groin pain now that I'm focused on this.

    Sometimes you just have to laugh at how comical TMS can be at times.

    Yes, TMS can be very funny at times. And laughter is good medicine.

    I will echo something Plum said, size does not matter.

    It was most definitely TMS. Thanks for the help @plum and @Ellen

    Now I can get make to working on my psychological issues that my brain was trying to distract me from.

    I'm going to start doing guided relaxtion every night before bed. I have an mp3 audio for this that is supposed to help with sexual performance anxiety.
