Men: nocturnal emission

"But: it occurs in some severely ill ME patients when they are awake. Many told me they only have to think of a woman/man and instantly ejaculate. Some say it's related to stress: whenever they feel stressed they ejaculate."

Alpha-1 Adrenergic receptor (a1AR) autoantibody at #1. What about POISers? And what about autoantibodies against opioid receptors?
I think antibodies to adrenergic receptors is a very probable cause of POIS.

Wow.

Very strong statement!
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

She (Learner1) got elevated IFN-g, IL-12, IL-18 and elevated antibodies @ celltrend against (via private conversation): Alpha-1 adrenergic receptor and Muscarinic cholinergic (M4) receptor. https://forums.phoenixrising.me/threads/discriminatory-cytokine-profiles-predict-muscle-function-fatigue-and-cognitive-function-in-patients-with-myalgic-encephalomyelitis-cfs.81197/#post-2294547

I tested for adrenal cortex antibody and was negative not sure if it's the same thing as you're speaking about.

I'm a layman, so take this with a huge grain of salt. I just think autoimmunity would explain why people find help with strategies that manipulate the gut (diet, probiotics, antibiotics, etc),  various supplementa, etc. Alternatively, there could be many other explanations, but autoimmunity, HPA axis dysfunction is where it is, IMO. This is pure speculation on my part.

It's not. It's completely different.

Dr Theoharides suggested checking folate auto antibodies for me considering I react to all forms of folate and have a folate deficiency

From reddit :
"There is an increasing body of evidence that gut microbe Lactobacillus Reuteri is deficient in many people with ASD, and one of the products of this microbe is folate.

I've just started taking it myself and seems to be having a positive effect, but it may be worth a shot as it can be easily purchased over the counter."

My POIS disappeared during the duration of being sick with the cold in the 2020 February despite not abstaining during that time and the moment it healed and I trigerred the POIS it came back full with symptoms but when I did not have it I had even less brain fog and symptoms in general and felt better than I feel even on many weeks of abstinence in terms of cognitive clarity and such however due to the cold itself I did not feel that well physically however cognitively I had almost zero brain fog and this weird mental processing speed slowdown I seem to always have even when on a long streak of abstinence had fully disappeared while I was sick with that cold in the 2020 February
