Introduction to my case
« on: October 17, 2021, 03:30:23 AM »
Hi to everyone,
First of all I want to apology for my bad english, it's not my first language so probably there will be a lot of errors. :'(
I'm 22 years old, and I think I've had pois for the last 6-7 years. I remember that during high schools I had a lot of days a sensation of brain fog, then I also started to have headaches,and a lot of social anxiety. At first I wasn't able to understand that all these phenomena were linked but more or less 3y ago, I started noticing that all this thing worsened when I had an emission. At that time I used to have one or two emission per week, so probably that's why I didn't notice earlier, I had it almost all time. After that, I noticed that by abstaining I felt better, and so I understood what was the cause.
In these three years my symptoms have worsened. Before I had brain fog,headaches,flu-like symptoms and anxiety but these things only lasted for some days, instead in these years I developed a lot of other symptoms and they also last longer(even tough my headaches became milder). So the complete list of symptoms I have now after every emission are these:
Physical symptoms:
-muscular tiredness(not very much, but still when doing sport I get tired more easily),stiff shoulders,slower reflexes and also a bit of balance problems
-flu-like symptoms(I have also allergies but every time after O they get worse)
-digestion problems
Psychological symptoms:
-social anxiety( It become difficult to be around others, you feel like everyone doesn't want you to be around and is judging you for every word you say or thing you do)
-rage( I don't know there are also things like noise which can even worsen this and in that case it become difficult to control my angriness)
-depression(everything seems to become really difficult and pointless,even getting up from bed)
Cognitive symptoms:
-Very strong brain fog, It takes time to understand what's happening around me
-A sense of unreality
-It becomes very hard to memorize things(especially things I hear, more easy if I'm reading them)
-Unability to focus on something
The symptoms starts to appear some minutes after the emission; usually the pyschological and physical symptoms disappear gradually in 3-4 days. As for the cognitive ones the disappeare really slowly, normally after a week I really start to recover and day by day I feel better, but they never really go away. One time I saw that after three weeks they had completly vanished but normally I'm not able to reach the three weeks. I know it seems ridiculus but even though I know it's better for me to abstain I usually only last 1week - two weeks. There was a time in which I managed to reach three months, but I continued to have NE (which give me symptoms which are a bit less severe but since they happened frequently the effects summed up and so I felt like shit in that period). After that I hadn't have the willstrenght to try again, this disease had weakened my willpower I think, all seems so pointless that now it becam really difficult to event try. Now I'm doing seriously another try(the problem also the other times I tought that I could resist LOL :'( ) but I'm at the third NE in five days so I'm not doing very well.My problem is also that also arousal give me light pois(but again in that case the sum of effect is not so light)
I discovered the last year that it exist a disease which seems to match my symptoms, and I'm onestly glad, because the situation seemed so strange I didn't know what to think.The problem is that for now I can't go to a doctor for this, and even If I could from what I read online there aren't test which can prove this disease, so probably it would be pointless, so for now I just will try to abstain and find a way to survive this.
Since I'm a new member there are things that I would like to ask to people which had it for a longer time, especially this:since in my case it's worsened in these years I wanted to ask if it's something normal and it will continue to get worse or if maybe it will just stay this way.

Hi, StillTrying, and welcome to the forum,
It sure sounds like you have POIS.   To abstain is, of course, very helpful, but as you see, there are still NE to cause problems.  I used a strategy for this, by planning a release so that I have a few days off after to recover and plan them near enough to avoid any NE in between.  In my case, once in 2 to 3 weeks was ok to avoid NE ( in addition to avoiding any stimuli that would facilitate an NE the following night, like looking at websites with photos of beautiful women, movies with sex scenes, and so on...)


In case you did not see it, take a look at this list of important posts for newcomers:  https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=3777.0 .
Take a look in particular to the POIS Types Chart with methods to relieve symptoms that other members have found for themselves.  If you find one that can help you have less severe POIS, this will make for a shorter recovery time, and your planned releases will be easier still to manage.  For example, if you find that niacin helps you have less symptoms ( see details in the chart), you can use it for your planned release, and that will help you a lot manage your POIS, and make your life almost normal.

there are still NE’s [nocturnal emissions] to cause problems.


My NE’s caused more devastating POIS than anything else!

I finally found a solution: aging!

;D

(But yes, I’m serious).

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
