I've been working on the text for my youtube PSA/film this weekend and borrowed a few phrases from you.(I trust that you don't mind.)

What percentage of vegetables to protein did you use with this diet? And what percentage of the veggies are cookedvs. raw? And is there any other animal food, as in meat, allowed? Or is it only dairy?

Does this mean that I now have to go looking for smelly Levitra?  [:-'(] <<<<===== crying from onions
But the Cheese Whiz---I can't quite squeeze my mind around that. Is it really a food substance...   
I've also found eating eggs seems like it accelerates the recovery time by a day or two, though probably not so good for the cholesterol.
For my own remedies, I've found taking men's multivitamins helps the next day, and sometimes a big dose of vitamins followed by vigorous workout seems to "kick-start" my body out of it. Seems counterintuitive, since the natural tendency is to be tired, but it's worked well for me.
I'm wondering if someone might turn the thread into a condensed digest form?Thanks everyone for sharing. Cheers,ollec
I can't fix magnesium and it's defintly low but I do my possible to increase it. (I eat 1 egg/day for breakfast (2 in the past) without succes.)
Interesting idea of excessive release of histamine and refers to immunology/hypersensivity/allergy too.
I am now on Lexapro (unrelated) for depression. This has the side effect of greatly decreasing my libido. I don't really mind; it actually saves me a lot of time feeling bad and it's good not having to go through these annoying symptoms. I generally feel better physically.
Martin:Your addiction hypothesis certainly fits well with my experiences. My symptoms feel very much like extreme withdrawal.
The questionnaire is somewhat of an answer to that need. Though these things take longer to get in motion than I had expected -- they usually end up depending on many, many, people.Thanks b_jim, for your help organizing critical information here.
COREMANWelcome to the POIS Forum! Your regimen is very interesting and this is very thoughtful of you to post on your first visit. Best wishes to you. I look forward to reading more of your posts.
Thanks for your great post Coreman. Two things:- How often are you getting psychotherapy?- Judging from what you've written -- most improvement after exercise, food, etc. -- it seems this problem is closely linked to endorphin levels.
I suppose both work for erectile dysfunction in your case ?I'll try to find a difference bewtween both but it seems even doctors don't know! (except duration).
...your experience with both drugs [Cialis and Levitra]is fantastic to try to understand POIS. But we probably need to find an expert to compare both. But on the other hand, it's very strange that someone as Imre1 removed his symptoms with betablockers ("slow down" catecholamines) when other need to stimulate it .
Cookie, chastity is very possible, I am proof (except for occasional nocturnal emissions). If you want to seriously try it you have to remove any stimulating content from before your eyes, this includes seemingly small things like people kissing on TV shows. Contrary to how it might seem at times you can become chaste...and nothing explodes 
Thank you Girlwind. I'll try betaine, i often wake up at 3 or 4am , and i think it's a problem with my digestion. If i eat very early in the evening i have more chance to sleep all night long. If i eat only carbohydrate in the evening, without protein then i feel very bad at 4am the next day, it's like an intoxication. Also recently i started to have frequent headaches, maybe a digestive origin.
B_Jim, the best magnesium supplement for me was magnesium gluconate (full dose caps or very small doses sublingual). Both were very effective (gave me energy)With Magnesium chloride only the first pill was effective and then i started to feel bad with the next pills. I have had a serious episode of heart pounding fast and loud (i went to hospital for this) 5 minutes after taking magnesium chloride on an empty stomach !
Demografx, I'd like to know if you have tried the antidepressant phenelzine among the others. It's one of the most effective for social phobia. It's a "last resort" antidepressant (potentially more side effects). I found very interesting what you have said about SSRI (prozac,zoloft ...) , it will be useful if i take these medications.
