My DS is 2 and is intact. When he gets an erection, he acts like his penis hurts. He whines a bit & sometimes says that it feels "tight". Is this normal or should I get him checked out?

It's very likely that he simply lack the communication/comprehension skills to differentiate the weird slightly uncomfortable feeling of an erection from pain. There could also be some slight discomfort from the erection stretching the connections between the foreskin and the glans
My son had complained about erections too. I encouraged him to play with himself more, especially in the bath tub. I also learned that by pulling the foreskin out they can stretch a tight frenulum. A few weeks of increased activity solved the problem for my little guy.
