I want to keep on topic to pois, which the sexual excitement/release causes us to use up a reserve supply of chemicals and loose nutrients.
Id love to try something like a meyer cocktail
B12 is just part of the equation. Vitamins and minerals work together to allow the body to function correctly. Trust me when I tell you, when it comes to alternative therapy, you will not find just one magic bullet, it will be a combination of things. Afterall all, thats what drugs are that cure other illnesses, a combination of substances.
I saw a brilliant Neurologist today - very sharp and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, he thinks my problems (biting my fingernails, digestive issues, anxiety, brain fog) are likely stress related, and my social anxiety is nothing more than that. Sooo frustrating! Every time I said "It's different for me" I could tell he grew increasingly skeptical of my claims. Here's how our conversation went:Dr: Tell me what do you do?Me: I'm getting my MBA and working at X companyDr: Doesn't sound like you have cognitive problems with that pedigree!Me: Well I've had to work incredibly hard and push myself just to barely make it. Dr: And other people don't have to work hard?Me: Well it's different for me. I have to struggle just to get out of bed. And most mornings my head feels foggy and I'm moody and I can't pierce through the fog to think clearlyDr: Oh well that happens to everyoneMe: Well not in the way it happens to me. For instance, when I take ritalin, the fog can clear for a while. It's got to be a problem if it can get so much better like that.Dr: Most people say they 'feel better' when they take amphetamine-like substancesMe: Well not in the way it makes me feel better. And how does that explain why it takes my 1.5 hrs to get ready in the morning, my digestive problems, biting my fingernails, my social anxiety, how much worse I feel in days after Orgasms, etc.. Dr: So what other problems do Dr. Bing and Dr. Google think you have?I don't blame these doctors, it's just that there's no literature to support our claims. And there are hypochondriacs out there, and there are far more of them than there are of us. The worst part is even my mom and gf, who see me in my rotten moods, who see me get tongue tied, who see me lose track of my thoughts mid-sentence- I'm pretty sure they think POIS is nonsense. It's just unacceptable to me. Anyway, i converted another $500 of my pledge to the donated column. I look forward to the day when POIS no longer defines me!
I wouldn't advocate shouting at a doctor who's belittling you. Waste of time.

I just fire the doctor - on the spot - at the slightest hint of abuse. Life's too short to put up with his/her crap in our condition!Anyone interested: Please click H E R E to read The Top 10 Reasons To Fire Your Doctor!

Just wanted to report back in again. I'm still doing very well with taking just 500 mg of vitamin C daily. My pois seems to be gone.
Good news. I took 500mg to 1g/day of vitamin C for several months when I was around 20. I felt only positive things on it until I started to have anxiety. I searched why and found that vitamin C could deplete zinc, magnesium, copper, b12, vitamin P.
