Good day!

you may be suffering from male menopause of Andropause. this condition starts at age 45 with the decrease in testosterone production. anti prostate medicine may also aggravate the drop in testosterone. I would suggest getting testosterone levels in the labs and you may need testosterone replacement to add vigor in your life once again.
