Increased libido causing extreme distress

Over the last few months I’ve noticed an extreme increase in my sexual libido.I get periods of time ranging from a few days to a week where I literally cannot control my body in the sense that I get extremely horny; as in if I don’t release the hormonal pressure (ie have an orgasm), I become mentally distressed and even bedridden at times where I either can’t go for a few moments without masturbating or I feel an extreme shame in the possibility of facing social situations while feeling like this.I almost always end up in extreme distress because, of course, overstimulation physically hurts so I stop masterbating but then the mental/hormonal pain returns (I wouldn’t class it as physical pain as I don’t physically feel anything besides the signs of being turned on however I still have the extreme stress caused in just about every other way).This is causing a huge problem with my mental health as I’ve noticed that it starts and stops ‘sporadically’ (ie there’s no pattern to when it starts or stops, only that- so far- it’s never lasted longer than 7 days with an average of 5- two of which being the increase and decrease of my libido with the three between being the extreme intensity). It’s making me paranoid that it could come up at any moment as well as the reminder of how anguished I get during it because it is extremely mentally painful.I’m a female in my early 20s and have heavy periods however I don’t know if that is the cause seeing as this has come out of nowhere and is so intense.I’ve never had this problem before and my periods have always been heavy.I don’t know what else it could be- there hasn’t been any changes to medication/what have you and I can’t find any reasonable explanation.If anyone has any idea how to bring this up to a doctor/if there’s even a specialist who can help, please let me know because I can’t figure out for the life of me how to approach this and I really want to avoid adding embarrassment/humiliation on top of the stress this is causing, so please be considerate as this is a deeply disturbing concern of mine.I wanted to see if there was anyone else with experience of this who can give some solid advice or even just point me in the right direction on how to bring this up- I am really uncomfortable discussing my sexual health with anyone and have come here first for some help I’m not only this issue but also the best way to bring the subject up (My anxiety causes me to stutter/clam up into silence when under distress and this is definitely going to be one of those times, so the less time spent attempting to communicate the better x)I actually need some serious advice as this is taking an extreme toll on my mental health so please don’t reply with ‘just have sex/masturbate’ because 1) masterbation doesn’t work/only relieves the stress for a little while and 2) My choices when it comes to my sex life are my own. I don’t want to nor am I going to have sex for the slim chance it may have a beneficial effect, which I highly doubt if masturbation and orgasms aren’t working. Saying otherwise is ridiculous and I will assume you are simply trying to goad me into replying or cause me more distress. I will not reply to any ‘advice’ that is not actually helpful to/considering of my situation- ie if you aren’t going to answer with something useful then please refrain from doing so. I am not here for your entertainment. I am in extreme distress.Sorry if that last bit is a little brash however some of the replies I’ve seen on this site while searching for possible answers/help within similar topics have not been very good at convincing me to get my question out there and this is bad enough as it is.Thank you x

Sounds like you are suffering from PGAD persistent genital arousal disorder. This is actually a thing, it’s not something to be embarrassed about. Your GP will know about it. It’s sounds like you have classic symptoms. Google it.
