    Warning first! I don't wish to upset anyone but my question relates to sexual health. So stop reading if easily upset.

    For the last couple of years I've had a very unsatisfying sex life with my wife. Basically I believe I have penile neuropathy because although I get aroused as normal, i have very little sensation down there. Intercourse and other activities don't lead to a result.
    I have been advised by my gp that the mild arthritis I thought I had in my hands, was likely to be neuropathy. I never thought at the time that might be connected to my other problem.

    Am I doomed to being unfulfilled forevermore or has anyone ever recovered any sensation?

    Hello and welcome. May I ask how your blood glucose levels are looking and if you test them at home?

    It would help us give better targeted advice if you could say which medications, if any, you take and what your diet in general looks like. The more info you feel comfortable with giving then the more help and support we can offer.
