Most B12 products even the B12 injections is cyanocobalamin and it is made from a cyanide molecule attached to a cobalamin (B12) molecule. Cyanide is a toxic poison that the body cannot metabolize, and over time, it can accumulate in brain tissues.
You should take a supplement made with the methylcobalamin form of B12, which has been shown to be the safest and most effective. Most experts recommend taking a minimum of 1,000 mcg a day of sublingual methylcobalamin. Higher dosages per day are sometimes required to bring levels back up to an optimal level and to restore energy, mental function and mood balance. I suggest trying MAX-B12 brand.
Speak to your doctor first.
I am 38 I do have IBS.. I am not anemic..I take Vit D 1000ius and I take Lisinipril 5 mgs (BP MED) that is it right now... So are you saying B12 would not cause these issues?

Have you been seen by an Endocrinologist?
A natural way to raise the body's testosterone levels safely include supplementing the diet with specific nutrients and physical exercise.
Take a B-complex vitamin supplement that includes folic acid, vitamin B5, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 to increase testosterone production. These nutrients are important in protein and fat metabolism for the manufacture of this hormone. Eat foods that contain these vitamins, including avocados, eggs, fish and wheat germ.
Increase zinc in your diet to raise testosterone levels. Take a daily zinc supplement. Foods like shellfish, prawns and oysters that are high in this mineral.
Take 500 mg of fish oil once or twice every day, as recommended by your doctor. Fish oil contains omega 3 fatty acids and other nutrients which help to decrease sex hormone binding globulin, or SHBG. SHBG is a protein that captures or binds to testosterone in the blood, lowering availability of the hormone. Regular strenuous exercise, such as resistance training, weight lifting and endurance running to increase testosterone levels.
Eat foods that increase testosterone production. eggs, tomatoes, red peppers, cruciferous vegetables, alfalfa sprouts, apples and pineapples.
Reduce saturated fat, sugary and processed foods. These foods reduce testosterone levels in the body. Talk to your doctor about what I posted
