So I am now pretty certain that my POIS is due to some virus.  Nanna1 suggested somewhere that sugar and lycine is a food for these viruses.  The problem is that since birth I am addicted to sweets.  I can sacrifice anything in the world except sweets.  I am still on the low side of weight so dont need to worry on sugar, except this week I confirmed that sugar is the culprit.

My stack pretty much cured my POIS symptoms.  As a test I held back on lemon tarts that I have been eating for time immemorial.  But yesterday on my 5th day of POIS, I caved in, and binged on lemon tarts like a pig, and my POIS symptoms have re-emerged within 24 hrs on 6th day.

QUESTION:    I have replaced table sugar with Stevia which was easy to do.  But I cannot manage the sugary tarts I eat.  So to contend with whatever my situation is, IS THERE A CHEMICAL COMPOUND THAT I CAN TAKE ON AS NEED BASIS TO NEUTRALIZE SUGAR as soon I injest any sweets?

That Familiar Feel / Change of POIS over time
« Last post by julius on Today at 04:46:36 PM »
It has been a while since I posted here for the last time. I hope that you are all doing well and enjoy the many things this life has to offer.

I have had POIS ever since I was a little boy: I was 13 years old when I got it the first time. I am more than a decade further ow and it's still affectig my life. I was thinking lately about this illness and how it developed over time. My condition has improved slightly over time. Some of the symptoms I had 10 years ago vanished completely. I used to have a dull headache and pressure on the ears. Both of these symproms vanished completely. I still get anxious and have some difficulties to focus, but it's not like it was 10 years ago. It has definitely improved. I know that some people develop POIS at a later age and that some have it their whole lifes. However, I haven't heard of POIS'ers that just got rid of POIS over time. Is there a possibility that the symptoms will vanish on their own completely over time? Do these cases exist?

Yes its all related, its classic POIS symptoms, eyes and face/skin.  I get some kind of growth on the inside of eyelids which irritate the heck out of me and the sensations all over face are the nerve endings in a panicky, dying or trying to regenerate state, kind of like peripheral neuropathy. 

Hearkening back to an earlier topic in this thread, i find it rather interesting that Nanna highlighted the Trigeminal Nerve as a possible source of our problems. My eyes get inflamed for days after climax or a hot shower, which only disappears with anti-inflammatory eye drops provided by my optician. By that same token, I also get burning pain and strange, almost electricity-like sensations all over my face. Perhaps it's all related?

Regardless, I'm planning on replicating Nanna's Excedrin trial sometime soon. Abstinence has worked wonders for me, but it might cause problems in the future.

That Familiar Feel / Re: prostate surgery

One forum member, Animus, I believe, actually had his testicles removed, his seminal vesicles cauterized, and his prostate surgically reduced in size. His symptoms disappeared completely afterwards, so long as he adhered to his meds.

I personally wouldn't mind, though I'd imagine most POISers would find this option somewhat undesirable. :P

As Quantum said, I would advise against this solution. It is a risky procedure that in the end could not solve anything.

I would personally love to hear back from Animus, but at this moment we can not be sure that he is not suffering from POIS symptoms. Personally, I wouldn't take his silence for a "yes, it worked".

Aye, wise words from both of you. I'll admit I might've considered it, if only 'cause I'd do anything to get rid of this condition we all share, though hopefully I'll find success with Niacin or one of Nanna's stacks in the future.

have done paleo, not aip, for about 50 days now, better stomach and bowel as a result

also started with blackcurrant supplements

not sure if pois is still present, had nocturnal emission and felt a bit of a cold but will get back with info next time i mount my wife  ;D

Nice.  What are you using the black currant for and is it helping?

Im going to try it goinglesscrazy and i will let you know the results.

thanks!

It does something but I am still not sure about it just yet.  My experience at first was gaba boosting (calmness and tiredness, perhaps my gaba levels were low), now I feel like it gives me energy while I've been calm this entire time.  I've gotten to 5 drops in the morning instead of at night.  Results still unclear.

Hi Bombardier, and everyone,

About Animus, since he has not posted on the forum for about 6 years now, it is hard to say anything about long term efficiency of the radical choice he made.  We do not know if he is still 100% cleared of POIS.  I never had the chance to be in contact with him, since I have found this forum 4 years ago.

It seems, however, that having his testicles removed was linked to a personal condition - I think he had a painful lump or something similar, and the orchidectomy did not contribute significantly to his POIS relief.  This concurs with the reports from members who went through vasectomy, saying that it didn't bring any relief for their POIS.

General Alternative Causes and Treatments of POIS / Re: B6 to lower prolactin?
« Last post by dizzy on August 15, 2018, 08:12:47 AM »
@Scrub I actually had to stop doing lat pulls because they make me mentally fatigued for almost a week. Now I reduced my workout to a level that still feels comfortable, while I still feel happy about the results. I'm also more focused on other aspects of my physique now, such as good posture.

Regarding mental issues, it could be that people who have them are predisposed to POIS with mental sides. I sometimes wonder if I used sex and masturbation (and porn) too much as an escape from my mental issues, aggravating my problems, and possibly inducing POIS. But perhaps the explanation is more physical (like sensitivity to prolactin).

@b_jim Keeping the Mg sounds like a good idea. I noticed that my B6 caps actually contain Mg (magnesium-taurate, which could be a good form to try if taurine helps you). Also keep in mind that B6 might start to work only at a specific dose. I used 200mg (which is quite a lot but still considered safe from what I've read, at least short-term).

IMPORTANT: make sure you take the (active) P5P form of B6, otherwise it will start to compete with the endogenous P5P (the P5P present naturally in your body), and that may cause cell-death and neuropathy, and nasty stuff like that. See: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16320662
