Any insight would be much appreciated.
« on: January 16, 2022, 10:01:20 AM »

Hi All.

I was prescribed a low dose of the beta blocker Propranonol in November 2021 for anxiety. I am now aware of a potential association of this drug with Peyronies Disease but I only took three 10mg tablets over two days. I found them to be no use for the intended purpose and they seemed to cause profound Erectile Dysfunction for several weeks.

A week after cessation of Propranolol I had some low level penile pain and Googling this suggested that it might be Peyronies Disease. Over the past weeks the pain has come and gone but at the moment it is really quite severe (a burning/broken glass type feeling) and seems to be located somewhere near my urethra, towards the base of the penis. I have higher urinary frequency than usual. I had a flexible cystoscopy procedure about 6 months earlier for unrelated reasons. This was clear, but it is probably another Peyronies Disease risk factor.

I have no curvature although the dorsal vein looks more dilated than usual. A recent prostate exam was clear.

Does this sound like early Peyronies Disease or is it too early to say? I am waiting to see a urologist - now considerably more anxious than before the beta blockers!

Thanks.

Hi Jimmy123,

Please go see a urologist! Self-diagnosis will only lead to psychosis  ;D.  But if you have any type of pain, go see a doctor immediately! Even if its not peyronies, pain is not good!  Don't wait because it will only cause anxiety :)

Just following up: The consultant confirmed my (self)-diagnosis.

You mean the consultant diagnosed you with early Peyronies?

What led them to this diagnosis? Palpation only?

That’s right. He seemed to know quite quickly (he must operate on many patients). He said there was scar tissue present and knew where to check, which was instantly tender.

I must say that the pain (exclusively flaccid) is worse than I had hoped. Feels like a knitting needle is being inserted into my urethra. I wonder how long I can expect this to continue. I'm aware of the claimed figures but I wonder if there are periods of relief.

Quick update. Another Urologist (this time one that believes that penile pain is not only cased by Peyronies Disease) thinks it's probably not Peyronies Disease.
This is all very confusing. Still have some discomfort but no obvious bend other than what may be mild congenital dorsal when at extreme of "inflation". It's been 8 months now.

I'm not sure what path you should take, but absolutely keep monitoring your condition. Take photos, measurements... And act fast if there are changes.

Thank you Prfact. Yes I have seen that, and I have read Dr. Trost’s posts on here in great detail. I have found this to be a great help.
