Hello,

I am feeling better and better, i can tell you after nearly 11 weeks of therapy i think the tVNS with the tens Eco2 is a good solution for me.
I am also on week 6 with no O so i think it's correlated with the general good results, what do you think?

I'll receive a second tens device early next week for tests only, if someone is interested, please mp.

Many thanks,
Raphael
Great to hear. Thanks for reporting!

I would like to remind you that it may not be necessary to stimulate the vagus nerve. It may be that just releasing a possible nerve compression in its path or acting to lengthen the nerve is effective. To further improve, perhaps a correction in the chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters may be necessary.

My proposal: https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2714.0

My POIS only happens with masturbation. Normal sex does not generate POIS symptoms. When I have no back pain and I masturbate the POIS symptoms are weaker and last for at most 2 days. My POIS is related to the health of my thoracic and cervical spine. Postural and Aerobic Exercise heal the vagus.

I met with Dr Amarenco 2 times. The last time was last year and he mentioned this device saying it was being built.

Two 2 weeks ago, I sent him a mail out of nowhere asking about the device and he replied that there were planning a specific study for its use in the context of POIS. Now that I see this post it makes more sense.

I'll try to see him shortly to know more.

Cheers,

POISse

To our NORD POIS Research Team 11/9/19

Hi Dr. Lorenz,
Hi Dr. Prause,

The forum has done some exploration of the relationship between POIS and vagal dystonia, with some promising but not yet definitive experiments with tVNS devices.

Is there any room for this type of inclusion or consideration  in your current study?

Best regards,
Demo


Hi Demo;

Yes, we have taken vagal contributions into account.

Cheers
Dr L

Hi All (from Colm here),

Long time no posts - sorry.

Thanks for keeping this thread alive. I think it deserves to sit alongside other helpful threads.

Am now over 3 years of daily use / experimentation with (now two) tVNS devices, since the original research centering on ‘Vagal Dystonia’ inspired me to take a risk and delve in a practical way, deep into the VNS world.

I plan to give a meaningful and honest update of my own experience since my last update, posted here by year end. Pharayema’s experiential holds promise also and is obviously helping his version of POIS also.

It may be of interest to some POISers, but as I know from 45 years with the condition, and the information I have seen here since finding POISforum in 2013, there is a variance of POIS experiences and a still wide set of beliefs around how to manage the myriad of symptoms or finally solve the puzzle.

Am very excited to learn more from the new study this year also, and I believe the focus and process will be complementary to other theories like Vagus nerve. Anything that helps guys who are still struggling is hugely valuable. Fair play to the lads on the team here for getting NORD to source a modern and forward thinking research team on board.

Best regards,
Colm
