i read somwhere, mabee it was on this forum, that some people lack the ability to properly brake down prostaglandin or histamine. it cause them to get a head ache while drinking, and causes them to have insomnia, and can give them very long hangovers. taking tricyclic's like amytripiline can brake these compounds down.
has anybody else noticed a link between alcohol and POIS?
I quit drinking 16 years ago. I always had excessive reactions to alcohol: a hangover would last 3-4 days, like my POIS did, although the symptoms weren't exactly the same.
Yes. It seems to affect some of my POIS symptoms. Beer also seems worse than wine, in this sense. But maybe this is related to my seeming (haven't tested yet) reactive hypoglycemia (which I think is quite related to POIS).
I think the 'addiction' hypothesis is quite important. I find pornography, etc., can affect and severely aggravate symptoms (to some extent while I watch it, but more, the symptoms that follow orgasm, if I have been watching pornography... I think it intensifies the neurochemical reaction caused by orgasm).counterpoints i agree with you, before i found this forum my first experiment to combat pois was stoping pornography, and then trying to go as long as i can with out having any o's. the combonation of pornography/o's, multiplied the effect of pois greatly.
