Brief Answer:
Constipation, diagnosis, investigations required

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Went through your concern about constipation.
It is a scientific way to actually find out the main reason for constipation so the treatment becomes targeted resulting in high success rates. For a once in a while constipation, it is ok to take some laxative. If the requirement of laxative is prolonged then better get youraelf evaluated.
1. Ano-Rectal Manometry: to find your rectal sensations and the status of coordination between rectal squeeze and anal relaxation at the time of the act of passing motions.
2. Colonic transit time study: to know which part of your intestine is not working properly.
3. Colonoscopy: to rule out any diverticuli or lumps that are causing obstruction to smooth motions.
4. MRI Defecography: to find whether the rectum is sliding inside itself and blocking the outer passage.
5. Pudendal nerve study: to see whether your nerves are weak or good.
Please visit a Colorectal Surgeon for the above.

We have a constipation clinic at bhatia hospital & Apollo hospital.... XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Would prefer to consult and examine the patient before jumping onto any diagnosis or magical treatment.
Take care.

Hello
I have a lack of libido and don't get erection easily. And I tend to lose it during sex. The other thing is I noticed that I started to lose sensation in my penis. This has been on going for almost a month now. Every time I get erection I feel bloated and big pressure in my stomach that I feel pressing on my abdomen making me lose the erection. I am constipated and bloated all the time. The problem started with a pain in my lower back - which I still have but its subsiding, and pain in my testicles that keeps shifting from one side to another ( I still have). I saw a urologist, he performed ultrasound on my testicles and said everything is alright. He said It's probably a pinched nerve in my back. I am taking 800 mg ibuprofen, and I have black stool. My question is:
1- Is the erection problem related to the pinched nerve in my back because I might have a Pudendal Nerve Entrapment as I read online?
2- or is it because I might have gastrointestinal bleeding because of taking 800 mg ibuprofen, which I am suspecting, but no evidence except constipation, bloating , and black stool?
3- or it other problems related to the prostate or kidney stones?
