Customer: replied 10 months ago.
it starts with pulsating or tingling in the rectum and down to my penis and testicles. I feel like I am getting aroused out of nowhere but no real erection. I am just sitting working at my desk with no sexual activity.
Expert:  Internist replied 10 months ago.

yes, it is most likely related to prostatitis

i would adivse you to visit urologist and have rectal exam to rule out any complications/ active infections.
