Oh, and I have been lacking the desire for an erection also. It's as if I all of a sudden developed ED.

This sounds like you may have an infection of the prostate called prostatitis. You need to get in to see your doctor or a urologist for a prostate exam and a urine culture and you may need to be started on an antibiotic like ciprofloxacin for 30 days to treat this infection. You can take ibuprofen 800 mg every 8 hours for 7-10 days to decrease the inflammation of the prostate that is causing the pain. Once the infection is cleared up, your desire and elections will return to normal. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
