I've been having O's without any symptoms since I started on Trileptal 150 mg twice a day
Pois is just a chasity belt, to stop us from being promisicuous as hell
Mod Interjection:Hi folks. As you know, the two moderators who kept an eye on this thread (demografx and daveman) left to start a new forum for POIS (poiscenter). Due to this, and our limited moderator staff, we haven't been able to keep tabs on this thread as well as we'd like. We'd greatly appreciate your help in keeping this thread on topic and preventing abuses of forum rules. If you see posts here that seem out of line with forum policy (http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=8535.0) or find that posters are prescribing experimental and unfounded treatments, please report those posts using the "report to moderator" button at the bottom of each post. Thanks in advance for your help!
Today I have experienced a new symptom,I have got a stiff neck soon after an orgasm.is it something to do with the blood vessels in the brain?I am worried.
I'm taking 200mg of sam-e and some methylcobalamin (B12) each day and I've been feeling 50% better than my baseline. I at one point was taking 800mg of sam-e everyday, but now think that was too much. I don't have all the answers, but just wanted to let others know that this has been helping me. I've been taking these supplements, among others, for 3 months now.

I've been taking these supplements, among others, for 3 months now. I'm really happy that you're feeling better! I'm about 40% better, but mainly it's because I've been abstaining from orgasm (not from sex or masturbating though) for about 3 weeks. I'm taking B12 too (cyano, but I realize now that the methyl B12 is better). I gotta buy more sam-e. I plan to keep abstaining for as long as possible to see what happens. Also, I want to be sure I don't have constant POIS, because that would really suck!PS: I noticed that stress can also trigger POIS symptoms in me. Keep us updated!
POIS has been a really unpleasant experience. Not fun at all. But if there's something POIS has thought me it's patience. Another is perseverance. We may have an illness but that's no reason to treat people cruelly or to lash out at those who we feel do not understand our situation. True grace is knowing that you have a problem but facing the world with courage, kindness and humility. These are what I aspire to and curing POIS will always be secondary to these ideals.Guess that's my thought for the day.
BIG NEWS!!!!!Sorry for not connecting a lot lately, but i wanted to share that i'm 90% cured!! I explain everything on the other Pois forum: http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=945.0 [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]I'm so happy; LOL!
I would also urge anyone who is posting here about something on poiscenter.com to repost the information here. This is a separate forum and some people are members of NSF but not poiscenter. Thanks.
How long have you been better for? I hate to say it, but many of us have improved for a week or two. Im really hoping this continues to work for you.
90 %? So whats left?
Quote from: Starsky on 15/01/2013 16:59:4090 %? So whats left?Nothing really as important: just some stomach pain and bloatness, but nothing really serious. My main issue was the headache, fatigue and pshychological symptoms that lasted for days. And all of that is solved
Just a question : My doc who knows this condition(for him it's a form of Post coital head haches) want to have a close look to my brain vessels with the MRI numeric capture(the DVD) to see if there is anomaly ; Has anybody had this kind of precise verification ?
I still have my tonsils, but I haven't had any problems with them that I'm aware of. I haven't been tested for sleep apnea so I suppose it's a possibility.
Have you tried taking part of your ingredients and seeing what effects you get? It's a complicated cocktail to just arrive at by accident
I've been a POIS sufferer for many years. Here's a bit of my history:3 major concussions in my youth, masturbated frequently from the age of 13, extremely shy and anxious since childhood. I started having headache/brain fog symptoms around age 25. My other symptoms include nausea, sinus congestion and tiredness. The brain fog is the worst part as communicating and focusing are difficult. Symptoms happen about one hour after ejaculation and last for days. The only time I can remember being symptom free is many years ago when my girlfriend went away traveling for a few months and I must have abstained or severely reduced my ejaculation frequency. I get less severe symptoms if I have sex but don't ejaculate. I have been taking an MOAI anti-depressant for the last 10 years to treat social anxiety and depression. I have sleep apnea which is being treated. The scan they took showed excessive fluid levels in my sinus cavities but nothing more was said about that from the doctor.Since reading this forum I have started taking Methionine, NAC (N - ACETYL CYSTEINE) and I'm about to start niacin. It's just been a week so no change yet.Hopefully a cure will happen soon!
