Lyme disease - Not! But maybe psychosomatic? Oh! The unacceptable "P" word!I received my Lyme Disease test few week ago and it came out negative. So that is another idea going to the round file. At least for me. Now I am looking at a very different type of explanation. Please no screaming in the room... I am looking at the possibility of a psychosomatic disorder. I know, I know... The symptoms are physical and very real. But it still can be caused by an emotional response. This is precisely what psycho-somatic means: a physical reaction caused by a psychological event. It does not say it is imaginary, or that it is happening in your mind - it actually specifies it is happening in the body. I know it happens to me all the time. I got a letter from an attorney last week. My heart went pounding very fast, my mouth became dry, my breathing was faster and my digestive system went crazy for several days. Yet I was not in any real danger - I was simply reading words on a page. That was a physical effect from an emotional response. And it was greatly exaggerated and unreasonable; all the document was saying is that someone wanted me to be aware of a court case. Nothing against me and nothing to respond. But it clearly got connected in my mind with a court case that "did" bother me a lot few years ago. Back to POIS: it is very real but that does not mean the cause is not emotional/mental. I realize it may sound like a regression since few doctors finally declared that POIS is NOT in our heads. But I want to leave no stones unturned and I will be looking into this very deeply. I'll report back. http://www.unlearnyourpain.com [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register] Personally I could be the poster model for MBS (Mind Body Syndrome) but again that does not mean it can help me with POIS. Dr Schubiner's book should be out this month and he told me the entire program is in the book with a CD for meditations too. At least it could help us feel better about life in general I think. And less anxious. That by itself would be worth much more than the $25 for the book. Has this been explored by anyone here?
demo,sorry i didnt mean it like that, i meant like 'why' as in any theories why it may be low?e.g upbringing, stress?, diet growing up or something, genetics, posture, structural damage, nerve etc.nah i just wondered if you had your own theory on your POIS reasons/ etc. dont worry if not
Hello everybodyMy name is Pedro, i am 24 years old and also have POIS.I have found this forum by accident a while ago, some months, maybe a year.I read this first page and i was relief that i finally found some information about this terrible condition.I must confess i didn't read much after the first page.I had a alcohol problem some years ago, and i didn't had pois before that so i believed my pois problem was a consequence of that,and i pursued my own research on pois, believing it was a neurological problem.I, like many of you, experimented many drugs and treatments in search for a cure.In my research i found a new Alzheimer’s disease drug called cerebrolysin capable ofexerting a "nerve growth factor like" effect.You have a good review here: http://wiseyoung.wordpress.com/2009/02/10/271/ [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]i took cerebrolysin 5ml a day for 15 days then i increased it to 10ml for 5 days then i did the withdrawal, 5ml for 3 or 4 days then a shot day yes, day not for 4 days(it was enough for me)My symptoms before cerebrolysin:crashed completely after orgasm:inability to concentrate,depression,sore throat (sometimes), ....that lasted for 2 full daysAfter cerebrolysin i still have symptoms but they are much weaker and only last a few hours after orgasm(6~8 hours)ATTENTION i'm not talking of a symptoms treatment(like the other cures you have in the forum)i'm talking of a CURE, a permanent one, that i tested after stopped taking cerebrolysin (some days after)I hope you all can replicate my findings. If you have questions or doubts, fell free to askBest wishes!!!
Hi all,I have suffered from delibatating POIS symptoms as described on this forum for almost 20 years now. It's been a long road and i have tried just about everything to understand it and find relief with very little effect. I ended up avoiding any sexual stimulation altogether.For what it's worth, i recently found that my POIS symptoms have all but disappeared! It seems that when i consume 50mls of Olive Leaf Extract daily, and extra taken slowly (for 1-2hrs) post orgasm.. my symptoms have all gone. The relief has been consistant and 100% repeatable.This is my genuine personal experience. Maybe it can help somebody else here.Kind regardsDarrenPS. Anything liquid you can get from your local health food store should do fine. The recommended dose for the brand i am using is 5ml taken 3x Daily, but my results have come from taking 50ml (mixed in 500ml of pure water) consumed over the day. I also consume another 30mls with water post orgasm. It's not that hard to put it in your water bottle. It's totally natural and from what i have read there is no risk of overdosing, but please do you own research to check that it's safe at these doses.
Had another NE last night, this morning I feel great so far. I am attributing it to either the B12 that I took earlier in the week or being gluten free for a couple of weeks.
Who gets tightness & ache in back/hips/pubic/tailbone during POIS Im on day 3 since ejaculation and my lower back, hips, lower pelvic groin and tailbone is really tight and aches. For example if i was to sit down my tailbone would hurt.Does anyone else get this pain? Is it related to my hormone imbalance due to exhaustion or do I have to do what dr lin suggests and vacuum cup those areas to remove the congestion.
what do you mean by great, 100% or less than that.
lauracostis, i was just wondering how you get your ldn, is it through a doctor, if it is what type.
wow interesting matsado, so I just take olive extract right after orgasm, and the symptoms disappear?seems too good to be true.Regarding my pois history, I'm not sure when it began, maybe about 5 years ago? I just started taking notice like 2 years ago, I was never too sure though until I found this sight. I went to my doctor claiming thyroid problems, but that was dismissed. My pois symptoms hit the day after orgasm. My hands feel weird, head feels really cloudy, and really sensitive to stuff. By that I mean sound, pain, taste. Its really hard to tolerate stuff. It last about a week, then it slowly fades. I'm not sure if i experienced complete healing before, because the longest I've abstained from masturbation is like 1 month. I don't think thats enough time for a full heal, but who knows.
anyone else have mild stomach aches after orgasm?
According to a recent study, vitamin D is linked to testosterone:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20050857 [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]I have to say I'm taking fish oil since 1 month without effect on Pois.Guthrie was testing vitamin D, I hope he's fine now.
Any suggestions on what to try next [for POIS]? What has helped the most?
...my POIS symptoms have all but disappeared...when i consume 50mls of Olive Leaf Extract daily, and extra taken slowly (for 1-2hrs) post orgasm...
Hello i am new to this and i found this site by accident. But i quickly found out that i had POIS. Ihave had several trips to the doctor and had all sorts of tests including a cat scan but everything came out good. It feels good to know that am not going crazy. I just have one question about the olive leaf extract. All i can find is capsules i just wanted to know if this will work or if someone could tell me were they got theirs i would really appreciate it. THANKS
Quote from: daveyboy on 29/01/2010 02:41:31Hope it doesn't annoy demo too much!, but I never did explain myself too fully why I think the writings Wilhelm Reich, in my opinon, applies to POIS.Nope, not annoyed at all. I appreciate your fleshing out the argument, actually.OK, I don't know if this supports your argument or not, I had an undescended testicle corrected (possibly at birth) - and recall no trauma (but I suppose that it's possible).My 30+ years of agonizing POIS has been hugely reversed by TRT, testosterone replacement therapy, a daily dose of 15mg. In addition, I think the stimulant meds I take help.POIS is usually relieved about 90%.

Yep me too, testicle was stuck in the up position at birth, was lowered.... somehow.....Maybe this is just a common occurance for males? We need to look at the #'s....PS.
Insert QuoteJohn did you take 1000mg b12 or 1000mcg, i was looking for b12 supplements online and did not find b12 supplement as high as 1000mg.
lauracostis:you have a good review of cerebrolysin here http://wiseyoung.wordpress.com/2009/02/10/271/ [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register] (the same site i posted before)it's a very good all around drug for brain/neurological problemsit's an injectable solution. if you want information on how to inject yourself i can give you,or you can go to nursing center pay for a shot, everyday.i took cerebrolysin for 15 days at 5ml then i increased it to 10ml for a week. Then i did the withdrawal.5ml is enough for a healthy person. For us, i recommend begin with 10ml.A 15/20 days cycle will be enough. It wont cure you but it will definitely improveyour condition.I'm so satisfied with cerebrolysin that i'm going for another round!i simply dont want to wait the de-habituation period.i have habituation to the drug so im going to increase the dosage and kill my POIS right now once and forever.i will post my results here.By the way, cerebrolysin also gives you an overall increase in your brain capability, intelligence if you want to call it, nice side effect Best regards everyone
