Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you to assess your general health. However, it appears, that you may have been overdoing masturbation. Give it a break for a couple of weeks, and see if that helps. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Masturbation: 20x in one day is a little excessive. You maybe traumatizing the sensory nerves of your penis. Let them rest for a few days and see what happens.
