What would cause pain in your body from not having a sexual release?

When I go for a significant amount of time without any kind of sexual release (Roughly a week minimum). My body starts to hurt.  It feels like a burning or itchiness under my shoulders and spreads to the rest of my body the longer I go without release.  There is no pain in my genitalia and the only feeling down there is the mild discomfort and a "full" feeling.   I used to masterbate quite a lot when I was younger but have found no time or drive to do so other than to get rid of this burning.  I do not know what is causing it.   Do I have a sexual disorder? or am I experiencing some kind of withdrawal?  I cannot find any information on this  and my doctor didn't seem to believe me on it.

May be slightly psychological or hormonal.  Do you have a regular sex partner?  Or is it solo or nothing?

I do have a partner but due to various factors (jobs, schedules, moods, Etc)  we are not able to have sex regularly.  When we do have sex I am fully happy and satisfied but when I take care of things myself It never seems like enough or seems pointless so there's no drive to masterbate, regardless of the level of my sex drive.   I did stop masterbating to porn years ago now. My sex drive still exists and is maybe too healthy but it doesn't have a steady outlet .

Got it.  Well, the good news, regular sex with your partner helps.  Maybe try to work it in more often.  Does your mood fluctuate a lot?  Any issues with anxiety or depression?

I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety but not depression.  My mood seems to do the obvious thing and is high when I'm satisfied and low when I'm not. But it usually takes a while for  a basic depression to set in, usually over  2 weeks unless other factors get to me

What I"m wondering is if you have some anxiety and low depression that is then affecting your desire and libido but you still have the other hormones creating the issue of discomfort.  Do you take anything or do any treatment for your anxiety?

I don't do anything for the anxiety.  Only just been reminded by doctors to take it easy when it gets bad
