In brief: PInched Nerve

The sciatic nerve is not the cause of the pain source, it is the result of an irritated nerve typically in the lumbar spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease requiring further evaluation by a spine specialist.
Erectile dysfunction suggests a significantly pinched nerve(s) i would investigate obtaining an MRI and see specialist soon.
