    Hello gang: I need to report in. I'm Checkin' in like Gunga Din. As I posted over a year ago: "However those of you who have let me whine here for the last decade or more know that I keep the [ triptan] injections handy - and I take a healthy dose of Verap. every day all year - I have the big big O2 tank in the hall all year - I have tried a visit to the Portuguese wizard, busting with shrooms, Chinese doctor and herbs - nothing but licorice water for a week, water water water, exercise rapidly, ice on the carotid artery, steroid dose pak, Cluster vitamin regimen, Opioids, benzos, advil, melatonin, a Shaman in the Navajo tradition, Hot water pads, every other god dam thing. In the end; every single cluster cycle required absolute submission to the Beast in varying amounts before I can see the light. " By chance, this year in April which is the inevitable early part of my annual cycle, my mother-in-law brought me a bottle of CBD oil made from Hemp - no cannabis no THC . Having tried all of the crazy stuff above I am open to anything. The beast came knocking one evening in April it was the first of the season that was more than a shadow. I assumed the position on the floor and got my ice bag. Then I took a full ml. of the CBD sublingual. The attack aborted in minutes. I used that small hemp oil vial in a bout 15 days. My research led me to understand the "Entourage Effect " of cannabanoids. (I don't like to drop links in this board so Google it) I got my medical card and bought a CBD compound which is "Whole Plant Medicine". Not enough THC to even contemplate the tiniest buzz, but medially, enough to keep the CBD in concert with the other the other therapeutic compounds in cannabis. I have not had another attack since April. This is the first year in 10 or more years that that has happened. I know CH Father has commented that the results and reports on CBD are all over the place and this I see as I have looked on the boards. However - having been here since the early days of the "old board" I just had to let you know of this amazing outcome. Now - I have felt the beast trying to break in on a few occasions, which to me only adds credence to the results I am having being attributed to the CBD. A PF summer -- who ever heard of such a thing ? I hope to keep reporting these positive results. Wishing you all well. TomSwift

    Episodic CH sufferer - new here

    Hi Leah....welcome aboard...sorry you need to be here.. ...couple of thoughts: have you tried oxygen? Saved my sanity and perhaps my life. Kept tanks at home, in the car, and in the office. Even when travelling I was able to arrange for tank delivery to my hotel through Lincare….it was an easy online sign up. With the proper mask and technique it became a "normal" thing for me....and even coworkers got used to seeing me 'use"...without calling 911 :). Quick, easy, relatively cheap, NO side effects.....ya got nothing to lose. ...my abort of last resort is Zomig nasal spray (5 mg)….99% effective after O2 (rarely), meds (verapamil), and energy drink failed....with no rebounds and 18 hr window of "safety"...YMMV but might be worth a try... ...the D3 regimen is not as intimidating as it looks....while it's a bunch of different supplements....it is just supplements.....and even if ya didn't have CH it's good for you and very inexpensive. Get yourself a pill caddy and a routine and join the 80% who have found success... ...good luck with your training session....one of my proudest achievements was giving a sales presentation to some VERY important clients while getting hit with a 7-8 CH. I had to keep turning my head so they wouldn't see the tears coming from the hit side eye....and I don't even remember what I said...but we got the contract! And maybe you're one of the "lucky" ones...and stress is a prevent...just watch out for the wind down hit afterwards...those can be a bitch! Best Jon
