Poll: Do you have insomnia?
« on: January 04, 2019, 12:14:30 PM »
I think that the cold cills and the white tongue in POIS is caused by insomnia. I always had a problem with sleeping. As a kid it would turn of the lights so my parents thought that I was sleeping. But after their check I would turn on the light and stay awake for hours. At school I always feeling cold the first hours. Since I have POIS my insomnia only got worse. I have a problem of falling in sleep after sexual activity. Most of the times I only am active before the weekend. So I do not have to wake up early. But then my sleeping ritme gets messed up. At night I can not fall in sleep. And when I fall in sleep I wake up a few times. When I wake up i am feeling cold and have a white tongue.

Also almost 2 months ago I started with Clomid. Clomid can cause insomnia. I am off Clomid for 7 weeks now. Also antibiotics can cause insomnia. I am off antibiotics for 4 weeks now. Fluconazol also can cause Insomnia. I am Fluconazol for 3 weeks and have 1 week to go.

POIS since 2000. Very bad since 2008. I knew that I have POIS since June 2010. Desensitization since March 2011. I stopped with desens in July 2016. I have 50% less POIS. And only 1 day of POIS. Purified CBD works for me, but I am allergic for CBD.

Dog please check yourself for food sensitivities!  I had white tongue and all that crap for years until I changed my diet and I've said this so many times before.  But  I'll agree that their are possibly other causes. My apologies if you've tried this.

Also if their was a not anymore choice I'd pick that because it used to be all the time for me.

My POIS managed with Diet (@ diet that 100% manages my pois)Believe my POIS stems from inflammation in the gut. O = neuro POIS from inflammation from the gut

Current supps: microdose of zyrtec and gaia liquid olive leaf extract for sleep. Micro astragalus and 1tsp ev olive oil for energy .

Thanks. I will ask my doctor for a scinprick test for some foods. Since 1 year I eat nuts every day. That is because I used to eat chocolate every day. I replaced that with nuts, because I thought that is healthier. Before this I would only eat nuts maybe once a month. Since a year my tongue is white all the time. Before that only when in POIS. I read that an allergy for nuts also causes sweating. And since 2 years I sweat a lot.

Nuts is one of those foods that make my tongue white (except pistache), it also induces IBS-like symptoms for me. I'm reacting to almost anything, fatigue, runny noses, stool problems etc. Also sensitive to food with known allergens, but on paper I'm not allergic to anything , just like POIS.

That interesting. Maybe you are not allergic to nuts but you have a food sensitivity for nuts? I know that I am allergic to almonds with the ‘skin’. But no reactions to almonds without skin or other nuts. I will try to stop eating nuts for a few weeks. Maybe my health will improve and I get rid of the white tongue.

Yeah a skin prick reaction will just show an immediate ige reaction, a legitimate food allergy.  There are multiple parts to our immune system that won't show up there.  Delayed immune reaction.

"However, PYD did improve anxiety and sleep, and exercise improved fatigue and fitness. We speculate that PYD may have improved vagal tone, thus benefiting sleep and anxiety; this notion warrants further study."
