After 3 weeks of i became chronic severe dry eyes .
So im actually 5 month Off , i dont think i Had a Crash or Something .
First week Problems Like testicular pain get a Lot more less , and still are less but still there . Headach brainfog are away . Ejaculation IS normal think and pleased.
After ejaculation i got Sometimes pain in my left Side about my hip .
I still have No morning Wood , severe dry eyes , No Nocturne erections , or spontanes erections .
Libido in Windows are high and Then less .
Main Problem i think are my severe dry eyes , ITS horrible .
My questions IS what are the typical time where people recover ? IS my Case milde or more severe ?
How is the typicall Timeline which Symptoms improve First the psyschologicals? Neurological or physiologicals ?
Because i only have physological sides still the testicle pain and my dry eyes .
