this is another one.
That's how my POIS comes about. It's delayed by a day or two. Mostly anyways, one time I started shivering and had the flu at the exact moment I had the O.
I've not had fever in POIS for quite a while, but runny nose and weak vision always occurs, I also get speech issues such as stuttering and stammering whilst in POIS and my normally deep voice becomes that of a prepubescent teen lol. POIS is very strange like the gentleman in the latest POIS paper by Dr. Waldinger, I too have a photo phobia I get very depressed and my throat tightens up upon someone taking a photo of me, and it becomes difficult to breathe, must be psychosomatic, it's pretty extreme. Apart from hiding under pseudonyms and avatars, I personally, genuinely don't have any photo's of myself anywhere, I burnt all of them some time ago, I never had this problem when I was younger and before POIS.
I don't have very many pictures either and get annoyed when people take them. I don't know why.
Very interesting. I should clarify that "photophobia" is hypersensitivity to light, not hypersensitivity to photographs.
I've noticed that I have extreme cases of photophobia while in POIS. I can hardly open my eyes on a sunny day. It's even true on somewhat cloudy days. It's literally painful.
I believe Waldinger also mentions acousticophobia, or hypersensitivity to noise. This also happens while I'm in POIS. Hearing my cellphone beep or ring makes me want to smash it with a hammer. I get very angry very quickly, which NEVER happens while I'm out of POIS.
