Self induced priapism?

Can priapism be self induced due to prolong periods of erection while masturbating? I have prolonged erections for hours at a time on a regular basis. I have noticed that my ability to get and maintain an erection has seriously diminished. Will this condition correct itself by stopping this habit? Should I see my doctor?

Priapism is a persistent, usually painful, erection that lasts for more than four hours and occurs without sexual stimulation. The condition develops when blood in the penis becomes trapped and unable to drain. If the condition is not treated immediately, it can lead to scarring and permanent erectile dysfunction.  Please make an appointment with your physician for an exam.
