MRI OF THE BRAINScheduled for 12/26! I owe thanks to this forum for seeing a top endocrinologist. Why? Before this forum, I had no idea what those guys do for a living! Who knows if it's headed towards a cure. But I'm more hopeful now than any of the last 30 years! Thanks, guys/gal!
Do you remember exactly what molecule of testosterone you were taking ?(Some are safer for the liver)
Demografx, maybe you could ask dr Waldinger what he thinks about cortisol and Pois, next time you will send email to him. But don't send a new one just for this. You are the link beween him and this forum it's very very important to keep this link and don't boring him. Even my symptoms are not as severe as dr Waldinger described...
Possible anti-inflamation diet : Salmon(omega3), Wallnuts(omega3,maybe melatonin), Onions, bluberries(antocyanins), sweet potatoes, spinach, garlic, pineapple (bromelain), ginger, curcumin, apples(flavono´ds), cherries, olive oil, magnesium, vitamin C and K, green tea (without caffeine i suppose )
On the topic of anti-inflammatories, fenugreek has been documented as having anti-inflammatory properties. For example, see here: http://books.google.com/books?id=WJocdLd68sUC&pg=PA299&lpg=PA299&dq=fenugreek+inflammatory&source=web&ots=66s8NQuCpC&sig=Zi9b1RjKd4JIuIiwMdgKbSJqsM8&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=1&ct=result#PPA299,M1Thus, at least two of the possibly effective POIS-combatting suggestions (garlic and fenugreek) are known for anti-inflammatory properties. So this could be a direction to pursue further.
Mysterious fenugreek But it works for 4/5 of us !
http://books.google.com/books?id=WJocdLd68sUC&pg=PA299&lpg=PA299&dq=fenugreek+inflammatory&source=web&ots=66s8NQuCpC&sig=Zi9b1RjKd4JIuIiwMdgKbSJqsM8&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=1&ct=result#PPA299,M1says that the dosage range for the clinical studies was 50-100 grams of fenugreek seed per day. The Solgar capsules are 520 mg, so even if you take two per day, that is only 1 gram per day, compared to 50-100 grams! I'm not saying that we POIS folk should necessarily be taking that much, but it definitely seems like a big difference.
I added it; thanks Girlwind.
I was wondering if others out there have their sleep cycle/s interrupted during the 2 to 4 days of discomfort? If so, how so?
