  1. Seems like your moving in the rite direction. I would spend some time reading up on the oxygen. I know I need to change my technique from time to time to have it work better for me. I will also down a 5hr energy drink at the start of it to help give it a kick start. I do this any time of day or night, it does not keep me awake for them 3am hits. You will also want to stay on the O2 for a few minutes after the cluster goes away. As far as getting your tanks, you will need to call around and fight for what you want. Don't worry aboutt he regulator they give you because its not going to be what you need and you will just end up ordering your own. Get the tanks any way you can and stock up on them. You may be better off paying out of pocket for them, it might cost you less then insurance deductibles

  2. Hey Dagobah, You've got the supplements and basic lab test schedule spot on. Kat is spot on about doubling the magnesium dose while loading to at least 800 mg/day. We're finding faster responses and a higher level of efficacy if CHers load vitamin D3 with 100,000 IU/day (two of the Bio-Tech D3-50 50,000 IU water soluble vitamin D3 capsules) plus 0.5 cc/day of the Micro D3 for a total loading dose of 140,000 IU/day. We've also found that staying at this loading dose until CH pain free for at least two full days before starting a taper down to an initial maintenance dose of 100,000 IU/week ± 50,000 IU tends to result in a lasting and complete cessation of CH. Most CHers achieve success when the total loading dose reaches 700,000 IU of vitamin D3 (5 days loading) but some CHers and migraineurs need a total loading dose as high as 1,400,000 IU of vitamin D3 (10 days loading). The difference appears to be related to BMI and/or an immune system response to something like allergens. If you're CH pain free after tapering to the initial maintenance dose, the labs at 30 days is fine. If you're still getting whacked after two weeks loading, drop the vitamin D3 dose to 50,000 IU/day and see your PCP/GP for labs of your 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH. If your serum calcium is within its normal reference range and your PTH has not reached the low normal limits of its reference range, continue loading. Take care and please keep us posted. V/R, Batch
