thanks for getting back so quickly!no he is on no meds, never has been. he has a major aversion to all things prescribed by doctors or even bought over the counter. really down as in, the world is a big black hole, he cannot concentrate, cannot work properly, cannot communicate properly, his speech is even slurred now that i come to think of it. certainly cognitively impaired... one time he even forgot his own name! he goes about his daily activities as if in a dream... brain fog i suppose. he really hates himself during this period, I guess. and is paranoid, thinking the world is out to get him, trusting no-one. he is woken at night by these thoughts. never put it in these terms before, so concisely... seems to make for some kind of mental illness. he is otherwise an intelligent, creative person, although he is immensely insecure, especially during these "pois" episodes if that is what they are.he has never seen a doctor about it. even just writing all this down helps!
Thank god. I can't believe I found this thread. For the last few years I've had the EXACT same symptoms described here.
My problem is I just don't know which doctor I should consult...
You don't mention beta blockers, although they are quoted in page one of this thread. Has anybody tested these?
H =0 Everything normal.H+1 to H+1:30Feeling of anxiety.I feel a strange burning/oppressed feeling when breathing, like I've just been bathing in cold seawater (I must say it's very hard to describe).My temperature rises to about 37.5°C. I feel great warmth over all my body.My breathing gets heavier.H+3I awake with the same symptoms as above, only worse. Anxiety is close to panic. I realize that this episode is probably the most severe I've ever had - probably because the orgasm I experienced was sensibly longer and more intense than usual.My temperature has dropped to 37.5°C.Nausea.D+1 (morning)I have a hard time getting up - I wake up and fall back to sleep repeatedly.The oppressed feeling during breathing is still there. I feel like a weight on my chest.My face in general and mouth in particular feel very tense, almost making it difficult to talk.I feel terribly tired during breakfast, exhausted actually.D+1 (rest of the day)Physical activity seems to be highly demanding. I avoid the staircases, even walking is difficult.I can do my work, but it's a very, very, uncomfortable day. I lose my concentration now and then.Back home in the evening, my temperature is back to normal (slightly below 37°)D+2Like D+1, it's hard to get out of bed, and even harder to get wide awake.I feel terribly tired, exhausted, making me irritable, hardly sociable.However, I don't feel even half as bad as on D+1, although breathing still feels difficult.D+3Same as D+2, just slightly betterD+4 (today)Things are almost back to normal, except that I'm really, really tired.
