From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have a relatively weak erection (estimate 50-60% of maximum erection potential) and tend to have a weak orgasm with only a moderate amount of ejaculate (even after 2-4 weeks of abstinence). I am in excellent cardiovascular health exercising 3-4 days a week on an elliptical, achieving sustained exercise heart rate in 70%-90% of maximum range. My resting heart rate is 50-55 beats per minute, my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are well controlled with exercise and zocor. My blood pressure is well controlled by Hyzaar 100/25. I have never tried medications such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra for this problem. Perhaps they would help, but I feel the main reasons for my problems are my age (64) and the side effects of the combinations of drugs I take. Also, last year I had my testosterone level checked it was 399 (normal range 400-1200).Perhaps this is also part of my problem?? Thank you for any advice.

Caroline on Jul, 25, 2014:
I am a 66 y.o. female with a dx of ankylosing spondolitis. I have been on B-12 injections off and on for about 10 years. Over the last 8 months I have had repeated bouts of severe gastritis, no pain. The gastritis is extremely severe at night, with diarrhea. The episodes last about 3 weeks and suddenly disappear. I also have had right hand swelling and numbness with some of the episodes. I have lost over 20 #. I am beginning to notice this pattern following a B-12 injection. I take them rather sporadically, and so the episodes are sporadic. But they are debilitating.
From this study (3 months ago):
