Also I am now 22 years old, 21 when this problem arose.
One last thing, there is no spot of my penis that i can push or apply pressure on that enhances the pain.
I’ve also thought it’s a possibility that I have a really tight kegel, but no discomfort when flexing my kegel. Could it be possible it’s a mind thing and the placebo effect is tricking me into feeling this? It been quite traumatized and I do struggle to take it off my mind?
I made I diagram showing where I feel the soreness, I really want to get to the bottom of this. No pain when urinating either. Here’s a link to the diagram https://ibb.co/5TL1Nqt
It does sound like maybe you caused some nerve damage or some scar tissue.
I have a feeling that you won't like this answer, but you really need to see a doctor. You do need to rule out anything else, and only a doctor will be able to tell you for sure what's happening, and if there's anything that can be done to correct it.
I don't know if you haven't gone because you're embarrassed, but I assure you that you won't be near the first guy your doc has seen who's jelqed, nor the first one he's seen who's had side effects from it.
You've waited a year, and time hasn't taken care of it, so it's time to see a doctor. Don't wait on this. If there's inflammation in the penis, it's not likely to get better at this point.
Let us know what happens.
