Very good Cp ! Ok for c-reactive protein. I have never heard of Psa. Do you think it could be the mysterious antigen we search as the starting point of the allergic chain ? If Pois is an immune response , what is the antigen ? .Do you think psa is released with orgasm ? If it is so "easy" why any doctor didn't think about it before. I don't have specific pain in the prostate area. But Underwater and a lot of sufferers have it.
As far as a problem in the prostate causing POIS, we might want to test PSA (prostate specific antigen)
Whenever the orgasm is mentioned it seems as if that is when they want to start talking about that uncle that gave you one too many gifts

Demografx, once again i congratulate you on your POIS success.So would you now say that you are 95-100% cured?Was it the low testosterone that caused your POIS?
Again, I am pleased that after so many years you have found your successful treatment. I assume that after your mild symptoms have faded, you feel clear-headed, motivated, and energetic?
I dream of that [POIS-free] day, and I'm sure it will come sooner or later.
Would you recommend this, Demografx? [Total and Free Testosterone testing].
Demografx, thanks very much for your guidance. It certainly is frustrating that MD's, who are certainly very clever, are unable to appreciate a concept such as POIS. I intend to arrange for a Testosterone test.
I am aware that over-stimulation from such substances [caffeine/sugar] causes "Adrenal Exhaustion", which depletes hormones such as Testosterone.
Did the test in-pois feeling hellish.
My MD was thinking about testosterone shortage as well. And then he also sent me for tests on adrenals, thyroid. I don't know the truth about the human body either, Ambient. The only advice I can give is to find a good doc and get tested! Anyway, I am glad I got tested this week. Did the test in-pois feeling hellish. Results in less than 2 months. Will report back here.
Yes indeed Martin, i am now running with the Adrenal Exhaustion theory. The biggest clue for me is the complete similarity between my POIS symptoms and those of Over-stimulation and the rebound after the caffeine wears off.The fact is, all signs point to it, and i intend to follow it up.May i ask you to share your experiences of Sugar and Caffeine excess? They may prove very helpful to meAlso, have you tested for Adrenal Insufficiency?
Demografx, what were your levels of DHEA in the test? Does anyone have any advice as to what i should say to the doctor to make Adrenal Exhaustion sound more believable to him?
Hey there Whoa,It sounds like our situations are very similar then, seeing as though my POIS is related to over-consumption of caffeine and sugar in my early teens.I would recommend that you see a doctor, because they can help you to replenish your Testosterone levels and you won't have to work out so much to avoid POIS. Although i do admire your ability to self-treat your POIS and am glad that you have managed to avoid POIS symptoms for the most part.If i may ask, Whoa, were your symptoms like mine?:DepressionCloudy thinkingPoor attention and concentrationFatigueLow motivationetc.
I suppose that hypogonadism is a symptom of exhausted adrenals...or at least i think so.Thanks for sharing your results. In comparison to your results, what qualifies as a normal DHEA level? is it 500-4000?
I have a question.How can be scientifically explained lower back pain after and during a flu ?( I mean a normal flu during winter )
