Many people have likened POIS to a form of CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome). An article in Pravda (Russia) claims that oxygen therapy can help fight CFS.I plan to see if oxygen can help boost my current POIS treatment, especially on Day Zero! I don't know why the whole idea of oxygen and hyperbaric treatment seems appealing to me, but my curiosity is now in full force. 
im still leaning toward my original idea that i have become allergic to one or more of the chemicals in my body released after orgasm. i will try to convince my doctor to give me different hormones/steroids/chemicals related to orgasm and see if any of them poison me and bring on pois.
The final phase is one of relaxation. The sex tension flush disappears almost immediately after orgasm, the muscle tension, breathing intensity and feeling of ecstasy and blood pressure decrease rather quickly."
Chat RoomI just wanted to report that I had a wonderful time chatting at length with another POIS forum member yesterday at the Chat Room.
Chat RoomI've tried to go the the chat maybe 10+ times and nobody home. Most likely it's becasue of the time difference, me being several hours later here.But I think it could be very useful for us to chat a bit (more), get a better sense of who we are.Hopefully I'll hit the chat with someone there soon.
Oxygen makes you high. Going and buying a bunch of oxygen to treat POIS seems rather arbitrary, and maybe dangerous. I would expect oxygen to make most people feel better, POIS or not. It doesn't mean it's a good thing to take.

Tomorrow I have an appointment scheduled with an LLLT "Dr." to test for food sensativities/allergies. The gluten experiment was so successful that I'm moving to the next step.foods do trigger the same symptoms of POIS so that is the next logical place to look.I want to thank all forum members for the support and their determination to find a cure. I might have given up looking for a solution long ago without the reminder of how persistant you are in reading your posts.
I'd like to ask everyone about the subject of "derealization":

Today is day 2 from Thursday night's NE. So far I have zero symptoms...today I felt completely normal. It felt great to be out in public without any distress or self conciousness that would typically be with me if I was feeling unwell. Hoping it continues...

I took some blood tests last year and discovered I had low total testosterone, 407 ng/dl on a scale of 400-1080 ng/dl. Results from two later tests were even lower, 9.056 nmol/L and 9.682 nmol/L (on a scale of 6.07-27.1 nmol/L). Doctors said these levels were all "within normal range" but they look very low to me.

Finally on day 7, 2 or 3 days symptom free and I'm thinking about another cuddle.... but THIS time....
Men in their 30s and 40s also fall prey to low testosterone counts. It's a disorder called hypogonadism, and it can be caused by an undescended testicle, a testicular injury, a pituitary gland disorder or even prescription drugs.
demo,have you ever been tested for 'hypogonadism'?(appologises if this has been talked prev on forum)"Men in their 30s and 40s also fall prey to low testosterone counts.

Hmmm, made me wonder. It seems then, that there must be others out there with low testosterone, but that don't have POIS... So then is the low T a side effect of something else?Interesting point Daveboy.
Do I have Hypogonadism or POIS?My endocrinologist writes "hypogonadism" in his labwork orders for my bloodtests. (If he wrote "POIS" - an unrecognized malady - I'm sure that would create undesirable questions in the lab). Hypogonadism means that the body produces insufficient levels of testosterone. Which is exactly what they found in my blood testing: low testosterone (along with very high prolactin).I was prescribed testosterone relacement therapy (TRT), which, most happily, cures my POIS 90%+. What is confusing to me is that TRT is also the treatment for hypogonadism. But my symptoms are clearly POIS, and I don't see a symptom-similarity between POIS and hypogonadism.Does this make sense?ps - About 2 hours after writing the above, I found John's old post below. Now my question is "Do hypogonadism symptoms sometimes last for DAYS or weeks after orgasm?" If they do, maybe this is a new discovery! Do I (and others "with POIS" who are primarily affected by low testosterone) simply have a form of hypogonadism and not POIS?
Rob"I have generally stopped ejaculating for two years now in order to heal my body but have seen very little improvement. I've also improved my diet and avoid eating anything unhealthy. Right now I'm taking royal jelly powder and olive leaf extract to treat my condition but haven't seen any effects so far."Welcome.How much olive leaf extract do you use and how long hav you been using it. I calculated pablo's 50ml per day is equal to 250 mg of pure olive leaf extract and the extra 30ml is equal to 150mg of pure olive extract tablet wise.

Robb, my testosterone treatment has been very successful against POIS. My theory is that for those who testosterone can help with POIS, higher-than-average levels of testosterone are needed. Here are some posts relating to my treatment: newbielink:http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp&q=demografx+testosterone+POIS+site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fthenakedscientists.com&rlz=1W1DAUS_en&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&fp=467c3568f2eec009 [nonactive]Best wishes and welcome again!
I'm following his recommendation and taking 50 ml each day mixed with 500 ml water. I've taken it for a week so far but seen no effects.

That seems expensive--how much does that cost you per day?
Quote from: robb23 on 04/04/2010 06:12:36Doctors said these levels were all "within normal range" but they look very low to me. Seems that's not surprising at all from what I've heard here.... I still have to take my tests, but when I do, I'm going to bring them straight here, much more apt to get a better diagmostic than most doctors will give.Personally this hormone stuff is way over my head, almost scarey to me, not to be able to get my mind around it. But I feel a lot of good support and knowledge (and SYMPATHY) here.So good luck.
