unfortuately you do not provide proper Mathematica code
that one could easily run through, but looking at your equations
I am pretty sure that the problem rests with Nd[x] and Na[x]
in the equation for the electric field. If it is a fixed distribution
of charges then it this should go into the boundary conditions.
Mathematica tries to solve for that, and there is no differential
equation for that....
