It's a pity only 19 people responded. I found this an interesting one...
Myself, i already have the impression for a while that there are a disproportionate number of people from middle-eatern origin present.

If I remember, it has been proved than Pois hits mainly white/caucasian men.

And the beginning of symptoms often start at puberty or 50 years (andropause?).

Sex hormones almost definitely.

This thread is more about where you live in terms of location. You might set up a poll or multiple polls about race, ethnic groups, descendancy etc. Not sure how they are all defined. North Africans are different in appearance than Africans from the West part of Africa, idem dito for East and West Africans (different race or same race but different ethnic group?). Perhaps you want to include culture into the poll which can reflect habits as in diet etc. I think your impression is more ethnic group related I think, I'm not sure.

And the beginning of symptoms often start at puberty or 50 years (andropause?).
Sex hormones almost definitely.
My mother, aunt and grandma all felt better during pregnancy. The hormone change might modulate something.

I was roaming around on the pregnancy page of wikipedia and found this interesting:
''Progesterone also causes decreased motility of the ureters, which can lead to stasis of the urine and hence an increased risk of urinary tract infection.''

I wonder if there is a higher risk of urinary tract infection in autonomic disorders. I got autonomic problems myself and GI motility issues, maybe this could lead to GI infection. There was an incident where this actually might have happened. High temperature--->high GI dysmotility---> exploding belly pain. In that order.

Progesterone seems to go up during pregnancy. Could have an effect on mast cells. I wrote something about that here:

I think we need to do research on hormones that are connected with limbic system behavior, especially on dopamine.

Part of my family is from Yugoslavia, but I don’t speak the language.

I did a similar survey once before it was taken down and that one showed an overwhelming majority of members came from the USA. These folks tend to vote less I guess.

Latvia. So far I've not seen any1 else online from Latvia saying they got POIS. Either there are POISers but they haven't realized it, posted online or I'm the only person in my country with it. If some1 from Latvia with POIS ever sees this it'd be nice seeing some1 else say they got it too.

Interestingly there seems to be someone from Lithuania with POIS which is a neighbouring country of Latvia and I wonder if that could be that one person who posted on Reddit once about having POIS with mainly flu like symptoms and being from the country of Lithuania, still to this day I hope to some time see more POISers from the baltic states appear especially from Latvia as so far I am the only POISer from my country who has stated anywhere on Internet about having such symptoms and I do not know anyone else in the real life who has said they have POIS or anything like that and such symptoms and so far no one from Estonia has posted online about having POIS.
