Great News Dr. Wise.

For those involved, will this be the Wufoo questionaire?

As soon as it's ready let us know, let's get the link advertised all over the forum.

Hopefully we can get a campain going to get as many answers as possible.

If Demo is up to it perhaps we can convince him to get his graphics going.


Dear Forum Members,

We are now ready to start our lab studies and will be making arrangements to bring in participants who have already applied to the study.

On another note, the new online survey which is being developed is almost ready for a massive roll out!  We are adding a few questions and modifying others.  An example of something we will be adding is whether POIS symptoms are reliably induced by sexual activity without orgasm--and whether the severity of the symptoms is correlated with the duration of sexual stimulation--whether or not it leads up to orgasm.

I am very excited about the potential of reaching as many people suffering from POIS such that we can get an organized overview of the patterns in symptom onsets, duration, and severity.

I will keep you posted.

With appreciation,

Nan Wise
WITHOUT RESEARCH THERE WILL BE NO CURE!
Sessions 5 to 9 days, mostly Flu-like, joints, digestion problems, light cognitive.
Niacin has changed my lif though, now 1 day MAX.
Somewhere in this interaction with Niacin is the answer!

An excellent question. I'm looking forward to the survey!

This is fantastic! The end of this illness is still down the road, but it's coming into view finally.

Yes.

As soon as it's ready let us know, let's get the link advertised all over the forum.

We are now implementing some new questions suggested by Dr. Wise and Prof. Komisaruk. We are confident that we can finalize the questionnaire very soon and then roll it out.

Hopefully we can get a campain going to get as many answers as possible.

Yes, that would be great!

If Demo is up to it perhaps we can convince him to get his graphics going.

Would be cool!
Used to have brain fog, flue-like symptoms, un-refreshing sleep, extreme exhaustion, muscle and joint pain, digestive problems, social anxiety, urge to urinate frequently.
Used niacin in the past. Now using nanna1's maintenance stack. Exhaustion and brain fog now main problem. 3-day POIS cycle

That's great! Once they survey is ready, we should also send out an email with the link. I believe demo has the email list. I know we used it for the idiegogo campaign. It would be great to reach members who were previously very involved in the forum but whose participation has slowed over the years (this is true in my case I'm sorry to say). I'm Skyping with Dr. Wise this morning. Looking forward to the conversation!
Experienced POIS since 2002.
My symptoms include: brain fog, depression, physical and mental fatigue, memory problems, social anxiety, concentration problems, myalgia, inflammation.

...I would assume the researchers are keeping in touch with these great
contributions on the forum here, and bringing the newest thinking into
their analysis...


I encourage you, Colm, and all,  to send an email to Barry or Dr Nan,
expressing your (Colm's) sentiments above. I think it's critical for at
least a Rutgers staffer to read/study/convey to all the POIS-Rutgers Team.

Thanks.

Timing is good since we are now collaborating on meaningful member
characteristics. Your postings analysis may prove an interesting part of
the study. Agree?

I sincerely hope that searchers use our posts. There is more chance if a
large number of cases have the same observations.
For example whan we had 15... 20 and more Poisers improving symptoms  with
niacin.
