Important and informative forum posts you want to read first
« on: March 31, 2021, 01:25:30 PM »
The POISCenter forum was created in 2011, so after all those years, many posts have been created, on the many boards. It may feel confusing and overwhelming at first, as to where to look for more important information. 

Here are links to important and very informative posts that you will want to read first : 

1. Chart of POIS Types and Their Possible Relief Methods : different methods members use to relieve their symptoms are listed here, and are used to classify POIS in different types. You will surely be interested to know about this collection of success stories. All of the methods listed in the table have stood the test of time - they have proven to be effective over the long term, i.e. for 3 months or more. To date, no single method is efficient for all POIS sufferers. So this chart can be used to slowly and safely try different methods for yourself ( we strongly advise doing this under the supervision of a health professional, to at least see if any method could interfere with a pre-existing condition you have or a medication you take ) 

2. POIS Papers Archive - a list of scientific articles about POIS : This very complete list has been created and is updated by member Muon. They are classified by year of publication. It is the most complete list of scientific POIS articles in the world! You can surely share this link with any health professional if he wants to know what POIS is :

3. POIS Doctors list : a worldwide list of doctors and specialists who knows about POIS, and even published research articles about POIS, and are accepting consultation for POIS patients. However, read carefully the warning at the top of the list:  there is no definite treatment yet for POIS, so any experimental treatment is accepted at your own risk.  See the list at 

4. "What is POIS" Board the 5 topics pinned at the top of this board will give you basic information about what POIS is and what are POIS symptoms: .  Those five posts are :
  • Listing of Possible POIS Symptoms - Are Your Symptoms possibly linked to POIS ?
  • Dr Waldinger 5 Preliminary Diagnostic Criteria for POIS
  • Video explaining POIS in 6 minutes
  • What is POIS - another good video
  • POIS Wikipedia Article (available in several languages)

These few comments could save you a lot of disappointment, by making your expectations realistic.
