I did feel very bad after eating a piece of garlic. I got very constipated. I think garlic attack a bacteria E. coli producing constipation and pois symthoms, in my case.
Today i'm on Day 2 . I have a nice improvement of my symptoms with my current diet, for the first time since more 10 years. Maybe 30-40% better. Less flu-like state, more concentration. I'm more and more confident to break the POIS.
Nope. Haven't tried phenelzine. I do take Cymbalta, but what seems to work best for me are the ADD-type stimulants, which can become addictive. They do have a potential for abuse, so it's a wee bit scary. I do drink a lot of coffee along with the stimulants, probably not the healthiest thing. But all in all, it's good.

Proteins/carbs ratio might have an influence on cortisol, steroids and neurotransmiters.

Curious: did anyone here undergo a physical trauma (particularly to the head) around the time (within months) of connecting orgasm to these symptoms?
... final edit of the POIS PSA/youtube posting ...
Yes, as girlwind says, I only provided about 5 minutes worth of youtube advice--she is the one who did the entire video.Girlwind, I just watched the video--I think it is great! Truly a job well done.Now, the question is: how to spread the word and get people to watch the video on youtube? Will people just come across it on their own? Or, can we posts links to it in different places on the web? (For example, CFS forums, or sites for other sexual/endocrine/immune ailments.)
I just had a thought, maybe our efforts should be aimed at attracting researchers tied to universities rather than more of the public. This forum might eventually get flooded with people posting about their experiences. That might leed to difficulties in our communication and campaign planning.For example the youtube video could link to a wikipedia page providing a discription of the illness. The wikipedia page should end with advising people to see endocrinologists and start their own campaigns in the aim of attracting researchers. The wikipedia page should also make a direct appeal to medical researchers.
- Placebo effect/ synergism / missing link? Dunno. We shall see.
We still need an endochrinologist to start research on POIS. Not some professional to just look at the posts and make recommendations, even I can do that. This condition needs to be researched using patients and this forum can provide that resource.
Terrific! And I'm glad you said placebo effect. I was fooled by testosterone shot. It "worked" beautifully the first time, then pfffttt.Placebo effect is good, though, it shows how badly the body/mind wants to recover!
Hello demografx--The more superlatives, the better. It's almost as good as money.  FYI--I just added the sexual tag.
I think the first shot of testosterone really does work and makes you feel so much better. But I too found that it quickly stops working, within 10 days. I think this is because it initially suppresses stress hormones such as cortisol and CRF, but the stress hormone circuit recovers back.
OK, then, girlwind: (I need to save money  ) magnificent! superb! breathtaking! amazing! astonishing! fantastic! marvelous! delightful! pleasing! great! brilliant! perfect! ideal! Whew........AND THANK YOU FOR THE SEXUAL TAG! (hmmm, did that sound right?)
You're funny. Without your humor and enthusiasm, things could get just a little boring around here!
