Yeah for sure.But the unit may vary ,my PRL is 1062 mU/L(Normal range 53-360.4) .I will re-check in a hospital use more common unit.Others include TRH,T,E2,......are in normal range
So in your case, it's Prolactin causing POIS, right? There are pro-Dopamine, anti-Prolactin supplements such as Zinc, others-have you tried them?
I haven't tried them.I just appointed a experienced doctor and he will give me treatment.So do you know your PRL and other indexs?
POIS since 2017
Diagnosed in 2020
Trying to cure myself

Only did Free T, Total T, C-Reactive Protein test in 2019 January. Must do Estrogen, Cortisol, Prolactin, other tests once corona ends.
INTP, 19 y.o. aware of POIS since 2019 when realized by abstaining that O/WD gives POIS, likely had it since puberty, fatigue, brainfog, clumsier, slower thinking/processing, voice volume goes down, sometimes harder to look in eyes, lower stamina/strength

Journey, do you mean bass/punchin drums when say "lower volume noises"? Try to lay down (and keep you head vert so blood won't flow here) Will it sound better after awhile?
Personally I have two types of pois affected music hearing: the one when I hear lows worse. It's when I got tension problems (feel like flow when walk, tire very fast) then it helps me to hear better when I lay down.
And the second one is when I hear treble way too loud (but bass can be heard even better than usial) it usually occurs when I have some head problems- tension/headache but can walk normally without tiredness.

Haven't tested which sound types I hear worse in POIS but head/cognitive symptoms appear fast, within seconds/minutes post-O so whatever causes it is a reaction that's able to happen in minutes so I wonder what'd cause these symptoms if they appear fast post-O? A body system that changes fast is the cardiovascular system so maybe blood flow/dilation/constriction is involved in some way in POIS?

I think that's the case. Since I started jogging there was no single time when my brainfog and hearing didn't improve at least for a bit after a good run.

Something happens to the pressure inside my ears when blood flow problems arise, I can also feel activity in there.

When I run my left ear becomes stuffy inside after some clap sound. I had slight trauma of that one few months ago and it used to be like that almost all the time back then (didnt run yet) Now this occurs sometimes when I use in-ear headpones.. Usually milder reaction appears in right one as well.
Guess constant use of in-ear headphones causes sort of irritation, especially if music low frequencies (which actually punch and not make a sounds) involved. Stay away from using any headphones for 2-5 days helps me manage these problems. Gladly I'm able to use not in-ear ones alomost anytime now.
 I visited otolaryngologist lately and he assured me that my hearing is perfect and visually there's no any problem in my ears. He suggested that my hearing and stuffing problems may be caused by pressure/bloodflow problems when I asked him.
Nose and ears tied inside so if one suffers from rhinitus nasal problems may affect hearing as well. Runny nose and allergies are common problems amongst poisers.

Another one reason why I believe overall pressure/blodflow may be the reason- when I still had my gut problems very bad I couldn't walk for a long time. Had to seat in-between on my grocery route or I would've fall at home later exhausted for good with lots of body pain. After these big walks I usually took big cup of black tea cause it helped me to get some energy and my hearing would've been completely fucked :( could'nt listen to any music at all.
