B_Jim, Hurray, Demo,I buy the idea that at least one form of POIS is caused hormonally. Here is what could be going on. Simplistically: too much adrenaline is produced and has difficulty converting back to dopamine. Dopamine runs low, producing symptoms, and the excess adrenaline produces symptoms. Demo, Have you ever tried taking tyrosine?

Hurray, I now understand better your position on hormones I agree.Just curious, hurray, why you stress hormones over, say, neurotransmitters? (I do, too, but I can't explain why).
Hormones vs NeurotransmittersSimilarities:Both H and NT are packaged in vesiclesBoth are expelled from cell through process of exocytosisBoth bind with specific receptorsBoth depolarize target membraneDifferences:Hormones1) secreted by neurons and endocrine cells2) secreted into bloodstream3) travel nanometers to meters4) long latency of action5) no voluntary controlNeurotransmitters1) secreted by neurons2) secreted into synaptic cleft3) travel 20-30 nanometers4) action is generally immediate5) some voluntary control
has anyone done ECG, EEG, CT, MRI, blood pressure, glycemia, blood count, temperature, hormones right after orgasm?
