You will have to talk to your doctor again about it to find out what the problem as they are the best person to sort out an issue such as this. Also, do not put pressure on yourself to have an erection or perform. Be intimate and slow with your partner without the need for penetration/cumming. Massage, kissing, role play ect..

If you are tired all the time then you should tackle that first. You may not be getting enough good quality sleep. Or your job may be too physically demanding for your age.

You say you are tired all the time. Was this always the case? Or is it something that has gotten worse lately. Either way as Thomas said that should be priority number one.

Chronic sleep deprivation is incredibly bad for ones health, mental and physical. I suffer from sleep apnea, I waited WAY too long to have it sorted. Now that is just one condition that aside from your tiredness I have no indication you suffer from, but a lot of people do suffer from it without realizing. Either way go to your Doctor and tell him about your tiredness. Being exhausted all of the time is not healthy or normal. Your doctor might recommend a sleep study which could identify if there is a medical cause for your lethargy, or at the very least confirm for you that it is a lifestyle issue that you need to address by changing your routine.

Tired? Maybe over or underactive thyroid gland?

Sound like tiredness.

Do you sometimes get erections in the morning or while sleeping? or have they completely stopped as well?

A normal functioning male, even ones with, for example, psychological or physical stress related erectile problems will still get several erections during his sleep. You sometimes wake up with one, but in the good-old-days the only way to check for certain was to put a ring of easily rip-able paper (or "postage stamps") around your penis and check if they have torn the next morning.


If you DO get erections during your sleep then you know for certain it's not any sort of internal health issue, the weakening of a blood vessels, or cholesterol, or most commonly, a lowering of testostorone (one of the first things GPs tend to check)

Successful nocturnal penile tumescence (or 'Morning wood') but otherwise coupled with erectile dysfunction during the day is almost certainly in the areas of physical tiredness, physical stress, emotional or psychological stress.


Do you use an alarm to wake up every morning? including weekends?
Do you sometimes let yourself wake up naturally? You may have grown accustomed to being sleep deprived so gradually that you've stopped noticing but now your body is telling you it's no longer able to keep up.

Also,
How have you been emotionally/psychologically lately? Sometimes if you're used to always "being on the go" you can pass that threshold of stress without even noticing. You say to your self "I'm not stressed, this is just how I always am".

For some folks, their mood or temper might change. They might have a relative tell them "you've been in a bad mood lately", but some people they don't have mood changes, just physical changes and symptoms.

I once experienced a "Silent Migrane" at a time when I didn't even know I was stressed about something. It was very alarming, as I'm sure is suddenly not being able to get an erection.


Any way I hope some of those questions help you get to the bottom of it. I'm sure you'll be back to yourself in time

It you constantly feel tired, then that's a big warning sign.

When you take some days off work to relax,do you feel completely refreshed after? Or are you still tired? If so, you need to talk to a doctor about that. If work is making you tired all the time, then you may have no choice but to scale back your work commitment. Work to live, not live to work!
