new here and my first thread. Just short x, I took fin 15 years ago and still have kind of PFS.
Just trying to put the pieces together and am interested what you guys think about this?
What I noticed 14 years ago after quitting fin was, that all my skin was itchy. A clear histamine reaction. And it got worse over the years. In 2012 I had a flu, pancreas inflammation (I guess) and other inflammation. I was thinking I am going to die there. I survived. Ever since I have strong histamine intolerance. And way more PFS symptoms then before.
Histamine intolerance is usually a disease that women suffer from. Especially when they get older. Estrogen plays a key role in histamine intolerance. Guess what, we have higher estrogen than usual man, due to fin. I guess a lot of you guys have histamine intolerance but you are not aware of it.
I always notice that I have almost no symptoms when my gut is in good shape (no histamine reaction). Unfortunately it is more often not good than good.
I felt mostly miserable the 14 last years. I was hitting the gym and doing lots of sports. And I had brain fog ever since fin. Sports/Gym releases tons of histamine. Last year I stopped all sport activity because Ive gone through some hard times. That was the time when I recovered mentally and also in terms of libido (no fap played also a role).
I bought me a bicycle 5 months ago. Every time I drive extensivly I crash for days. Brain fog, no Libido, numb feeling, emotionally dead. I tried to hit the gym coupe of times. And every time the same reaction. Brain fog, exhauation, no libido for couple of days. I love doing sports and it’s hard to give it up. Sometimes I do it and regret it the next days.
Ok so I was just reading about amino acids. Because I read here that some guys recovered through Tryptophan / Tyrosine. They get converted to dopamine and serotonin in the body. Dopamine and Serotonine are two important nerotransmitter in our body. And without them you feel depressive, anxious, low energy, no focus, brain fog, no libido, no goals, no desire, no happiness, numb and lot more.
And guess what? I just found out that dopamine and serotonin are biogen amines. Biogen amines and histamine dont like each other. So my guess is, our body does not convert amino acids into dopamine and serotonin to keep the histamine level in the body low.
Sorry for my english, it’s not my native language. But I hope I was able to explain some part of the problem.
