Long time lurker and first time poster here. This may be long, but I'll keep it as short as possible...

So I've been suffering from this curse for as long as I can remember. I've tried countless supplements and tried addressing numerous theories including methylation, deficiencies, etc, you know them all. A lot of things like taurine, niacin, NSAIDs, etc, didn't help at all. I've noticed the supplements that did help me seemed to address the problems with inflammation and blood/blood circulation like omega 3s, methyl folate and B12, garlic oil. I will say that Ive been a lifelong sufferer of airborne allergies as well, and am all too familiar with what they do to the lungs and throat.
Now I bring that up because I feel like I've made a huge realization...

My current hypothesis is that orgasm causes an inflammation response in the body, but for my purposes here, it affects the lungs, and that lung inflammation reduces absorption of oxygen and that lowered oxygen level is at the core of this disease, at least for me.

I've always noticed a heaviness in my chest, phlegm in chest and throat, deep gravely voice, and a constant shortness of breath. I never paid much attention to it until a few days ago after I O'ed I had the same chest reaction and tried doing very long, deep, holding breaths to try to counteract that. And it helped, noticeably. So I O'ed again this morning and immediately started looking for changes in lung behavior and sure enough I immediately got the all the same lung changes that also happen when I encounter high doses of airborne allergens like dense pet dander and bug spray... The same reactions I now realize happen after orgasm.

Trouble absorbing oxygen can explain so many of the symptoms of this disease. The fatigue, lowered stamina, achy and weak muscles and joints, cognitive problems, shortness of breath... These can all be explained by lowered levels of oxygen. One thing that always happens to me in a POIS state is a certain feeling in my eyes. A Google search of lower oxygen level's effects on the eyes revealed this..."blurred vision, burning, excessive tearing and a scratchy feeling, almost like there is sand in the eye". This EXACTLY PERFECTLY describes how my eyes feel.

As I said, I've been doing really long, deep breaths as much as possible to get my oxygen into my blood and so far it's been helping. I'll continue to update as I build on this hypothesis.

My hope is to get ideas about this from others and see if anybody else wants to try their own experiments.

get your oxygen levels tested
