POIS comes from chronic stress?
« on: February 14, 2020, 04:28:46 AM »
I heard that chronic stress shuts down your testosterone production completely.

This results in a complete lack of testosterone.

This lack of testosterone leads to the strange pois symptoms.

What do you guys think??

I have chronic stress but my testosterone is high/normal. I think it's more likely stress is causing mast cell degranulation. It's a known trigger for that. I used to self medicate with cannabis but can't anymore due to work. I just started Ashwaganda daily to see if it helps.
