First of all, I have to say that during the 8 years I have had PFS I have always defended the AR theory (even when this forum was a crazy battle )
I still believe the problem probably may be explained in the AR, but can we totally discard other theories? Many of the problems I have may have some relation with the nervous system. Can all of these be explained by awor’s theory? I am not trying to confront anything, I am just worried, and probably someone has more knowledge than me in this regard and can give me an answer.
Also, some of the things I explain below may sound bizarre, but I am a severe case with evidence of fibrosis, atheroesclerosis, calcifications and other small things. What I explain below is on top of that.
I have lots of problems that some doctors say may be caused by problems in the nervous system and others say it’s all in the limbic system (or just caused by the central nervous system).
For example, when I am exposed to cold or hot temperatures, my body has new problems, for example, if I sleep in a room without heating in winter. I can get from skin pains to tingling in genital area and wounds appearing in my genitals.
But the worst problems regarding temperature is when my body is in contact with cold water: If I jump in a cold swimming pool, as strange as it may seem, the next days my body loses muscle and gains fat, and some parts become extremely white with veins very visible, and I get the pains of poor blood circulation (e.g. in legs, arms, head).
My family said this was stupid, and even though, at first I didn’t want to, I decided to prove in front of them the changes: I took photos of all my body. Then I throwed cold water into my breasts and belly in front of them, and two-three days later, my skin became very white and painful in some areas, A LOT of fat appeared, and I immediately got very big stretch marks that haven’t gone away, on both sides of my belly. I have the before and after photos of all of this. But the strangest thing is that despite this cold water only touching my breasts and belly, my penis has been aching and more “fallen” since then.
Other similar problems happen when I smell places that have just been painted. I get nerve pains, and many of the pains are in the area close to the genitals (which get more fallen), I also get extremely real dreams when I smell paint, very painful eyes, and I get sudden increases in fat (something which still amazes me), etc.
Some doctors have diagnosed me with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity because they say that people with MCS are affected by these same things. Others say this may be caused by problems in the limbic system, and others say there may be problems in the peripheral nervous system. Also some say that MCS is caused by both limbic system and the rest of the nervous system.
But what is strange is that some of this things affect traditional “PFS symptoms”: body weight, problems in the genital area, etc.
And every crash I had, I’ve become more affected by these things.
Sometimes for work I visit places which take care of people with mental disabilities, who have problems with their nervous systems, and their bodies are very disproportionate in most cases: some of them are extremely fat with very low hanging breasts, some of them are extremely thin, some of them have very big thigs, and I start to think that my body is becoming very similar to that of some of them. My thigs and breast have become very big and my belly is very big and low.
Also, mentally I have very usually anger, “poor control” in tense situations, chaotic behaviour, anxiety appears very easily in case of small arguments, lack of order, especially mental order, almost no focus.
The most amazing thing is how orgasm brutally affects my mental sides. I should almost never orgasm, as sad as it may seem.
This may seem surreal to some, but at least I now have my family as witnesses of some of the changes.
Can the symptomps of androgen deprivation explain things such anger, all the problems that at least feel related to the with nervous system, etc?
Also, i think in the past it was proven that changes in the limbic system were found in people with PFS, but I cannot find this info, does anyone know about that?
I am a severe case, so this shouldn’t happen to most people here. Other severe cases have had similar (bizarre) experiences as some of the mentioned above:
