Symptoms of Priapism

Priapism usually occurs spontaneously, often during sleeping. The penis becomes extremely erect. The urination is usually not constricted, since the blood fills only the cavernous tissue of the penis, and the urethra and the head are not affected.

After a few hours, the erection is usually accompanied by the painful sensations at the base of the shaft and in the perineum area. The erection is usually not accompanied by any sexual arousal or erotic excitement. Sex usually doesn't help, because it doesn't result in ejaculation, doesn't relieve the erection and only causes more pain.

Sometimes, Priapism is manifested as a series of short-term painful erections during sleep. At first, they happen quite rarely, once a week or so, but gradually increase in severity and frequency, become more painful and may occur a few times during the course of a single night. Unlike the longer-lasting "true" Priapism, the erection subsides with awakening and/or urination, bowel movement, some physical activity such as walking or upon taking sleeping medications or sedatives.

Random Useful Tip:
Epinephrine shot
If you are known to have a severe anaphylactic reaction, carry an epinephrine (adrenaline) shot with you at all times. Pay attention to expiration date and replace it regularly: upon expiration, it loses its effectiveness.

Random Drug Info:
Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
