My question is: could POIS lead by some sufferers to viral reactivation of a dormant virus, like EBV?
Have you tried some antivirals?

We should eat more chocolate to increase peripheral serotonin /tryptophan ! Guthrie, when would be the study done? and more info? What kind of tests would they try to do?

Quasar, do you have some problems with your lymph nodes? I think, even when I am out of POIS i have some feeling that with my lymph nodes something wrong is. They are some times small, then getting bigger, then smaller. I cant find a answer why is it happening so.
I was a little reluctant to post with incomplete results, but I have tried niacin (250mg) before O twice now, and it does a lot to alleviate my symptoms. For now, the 250mg seems to be enough to give me the flush. I would say that compared to nothing, it reduces my symptoms (mostly cognitive brain fog) by about 60-70%.So far I have only tried it on its own - normally, I would take a dose of fenugreek before and after O. It will be interesting to try niacin in combination with fenugreek, and I will do this at some point, but I thought it would be more "scientific" to let niacin do its work without any assistance.So, mark up another success for niacin! I hope it proves effective in the long-term as well as the short-term.

I guess that it doesn't activate too often, means it might not be a good indicator, but POIS doesn't seem to have any effect over it.
I must say it really does boost my confidence knowing there are people sharing ways how to help get better, I mean i dont know if TRT would be best for me, Im on 16 years of age right now and my testosterone levels are good when I cut my sex life for a while. But I mean Im a wrestler and I had a tournament a few months back and I had to wrestle feeling absolutely terrible due to Pois. I took second place, Do i think that if I continued to cut my sex life off i could have taken first in it, Yes i do, I was unable to compete at 100 percent, I was about 50 - 60 percent that day. I wrestled for 7 minutes straight in my toughest match of my career that i won by 1 point in double overtime to make it to the finals, It was all just a blur and I kept going on straight instinct. My strength wasn't there, My cardio wasn't there, I depended on all technique. I looked up ways get my body back to normal before it and they said its my Libido levels. POIS was not brought up once. Nobody even thought about it when i asked numerous questions on it. Maybe if Pois didnt affect us we would be able to feel better even if we cut off our sex lives considering Semen is still in our body at all times. And maybe it shows its worst side effects when it ejaculates. Im not really sure im just trying to throw some of my ideas out there. I really hope I can find something.I saw a video on something saying there is a way of fixing it but you have to be injected with your own semen for 3 years. That wouldnt necessarily be my favored choice on what to do.I kind of just learned to live with POIS and learned to deal it. I just know any time i want to engage in sexual activity i pay the price for the next 3 days. I just think it is what it is. I would love to know what its like to live without it but right now I just dont understand how someone can ejaculate and still have the same strenght, cardio, and motivation.Brett
