Customer Question

On Monday morning I woke up with my alarm clock as normal.
I hit the snooze button for some extra sleep, then flipped roughly on to my stomach.
I had an erection, but I did not know this at the time. I think it was semi erect.
I immediately felt pain as it impacted my penis straight on the bed. I do not know if it bent, it immediately went flacid. I tried to stop myself as soon as I felt the pain. It was sore, but not too sore, I think I stopped myself before it could have been worse.
As the pain immediately stopped as soon as I stopped the fall from flipping myself over I thought I was okay. This was reinforced by the fact I immediately seemed to get another erection as I was lying in bed.
I had 5 other erections during Monday, and all seemed normal. There was no pain associated with these erections.
There is no bruising on my penis, no blood in the urine, and I am not in any pain. The only pain was when I flipped myself over on my bed. I felt pressure on my erect penis from leaning on it, it hurt then I took the pressure off when I felt the pain.
Perhaps the head of my penis feels slightly more sensitive than normal, but it is not sore, and it is not sore too touch.
Should I get myself checked out? Would appreciate help and advice.
Many thanks,

Erections were completely normal.

Also, there was no 'cracking sound'. It was sore, but I do not think I remember hearing any crack or pop sound.The pain stopped immediately as soon as I stopped the pressure from my body weight and my penis immediately went flaccid (and then erect again as I lay in bed).

Thanks David, I think I was just panicking because this had never happened before and it gave me a bit of a scare.
