Some days ago a guy posted at Reddit PSSD’s group how he cured PSSD when treating his SIBO. And man, that was really insightful.
I’m suspecting it is also my (and probably most of our) problem for a good time. That explains how we see people getting better on antibiotics, diets, exercising etc. Pretty much all the recoveries we see here like ihatepropecia702, Chi, Mitch, cdnuts, English, cohort, Jorden, etc are convergent to this too. Even Ozeph’s, an active member.
I got PSSD after amitriptyline and Bupropion. Both of them causes slow motility, impaired bile flow and low stomach acid. Well, the perfect recipe for SIBO development. And guess what, low testosterone also impact our digestion, we see people there having low T, and people there who took any other hormonal treatment, like Propecia, like birth pills, etc. And sure, antidepressants too.
Also, in SIBO community I see daily people reporting the VERY VERY SAME symptoms as us, including sexual ones.
I think you guys should check it, it’s surely worth it to consider, and join SIBO groups as well. It sucks because there’s a lot of suffering and confusion and dispair, just like here. And just like PFS/PSSD/PAS, it’s a condition that is very hard to treat. Complex shit.
But well, at least, if this is indeed SIBO, now we have a clearer north to walk to. I surely prefer to know antidepressants gave me SIBO than PSSD (even though it’s probably the very same thing, but SIBO have more helpful diagnosis and known treatments).
Be good all
