Performance problems, and (shaking) during sexual arousal

I am a 50 year old male who's always had a pretty high
sex drive, lots of spontaneous erections, frequent sexual
activity and masturbation, etc., all my life.
Since about 3-4 years ago, I noticed that I couldn't get
or maintain an erection anywhere near like it used to be.
Now, I know that I'm no longer a spring chicken and I expected
things to change, just not quite as quickly or drastically as this.
It seems that now I cannot attain an erection unless I physically
stimulate myself, and then it doesn't stay hard like it used to.
I also noticed more and possibly earlier pre-***.
Lately when I get sexually aroused, after a few minutes I get
uncontrollable tremors (shakes) in my whole body, like I'm
shivering to death! This lasts for a minute or two, then goes
away. Oddly enough, I remember when I was a teenager and
would get aroused I would sometimes have similar shaking symptoms,
but not as severe nor as troubling.
I saw my doctor and he checked my testosterone levels and
said they were "in the normal range." (this was a routine check-up,
before the shaking but after the performance problems).
My cholesterol was slightly high (total 264, good = 63, bad = 188),
and my triglycerides were good (67).
I think if I go back the doctor will prescribe Viagra or such for
me, but doesn't such a precipitous drop in sexual performance
indicate a real problem, medical or psychological?
And if so, wouldn't it be better to diagnose and (if possible)
treat it, rather than just throw erection pills at it?
Should I insist on seeing a urologist?
Any ideas, suggestions, etc. are welcomed.
