    I do have a dull, very mild persistent headache behind my left eye

    That sounds similar to what we call shadows. Very common for Clusterheads. Switching sides is known to occur also, but I don't recall hearing of another instance where it switched following the very first attack.

    That's a really good thing. Not everyone manages that, so good on you @NickMirk!

    I’ll take a tension headache every fucking day over a cluster

    I say Amen to the above snappy quotable. :D

    This is a bit off topic, and potentially a thread jacking type of comment, so feel free to ignore, but folks such as yourself who can get a break from CH with high dose prednisone can typically also knock out their CH for very long periods of time via busting, as described at the blue "New Users - Please Read Here First" banner at the top of the page here, if you haven't considered such yet.

  3. I hadn't even realized a concentrator could go up to 10 lpm (I never tried one).

    In my earliest cycles as a clusterhead, I found that 10 lpm (from a tank) could somehow abort attacks for me if caught at onset, but of course that went right out the window toot sweet, and next thing you know I was having to huff O2 at 25+ lpm with a trash bag sized reservoir.

    Lol @Bejeebermiles over here in UK please :lol:

    Oh! Can you tell I've disgracefully and sadly never set foot, let alone driven, in the UK? My main point of reference for those pesky kilometers has been some driving in Canada, whee kph were on speed limit signs and junk all over the place, but thankfully at least they drove on a familiar side of the road. :lol: So now I finally know:

    "Britain is officially metric, in line with the rest of Europe. However, imperial measures are still in use, especially for road distances, which are measured in miles."

    Five titanium plates to hold it all together buddy . Piece of art really 

    Five?! Mind boggling that that's even possible - definitely sounds like an art/science combo had to be applied and then some in order to somehow pull that off. :o It also sounds like now the metal detectors will be seeing her coming from a mile kilometer away!

    @Bejeeberhotel booked for conference ;)

    Woohoo!!! There will undoubtedly be some featured speakers on the bill, and if there's still time to get one more scheduled, I nominate @Shaun brearley to cover the specific topic (I'm serious here!) of:

    • "The dual cluster remission and house tidiness benefits of tripping hard on LSD"

    Hey Ainslie Course, who is putting this conference on, is all about this kind of stuff, and Lord knows a combination of levity, plus your inspiring success story for sending the cluster bunny packing, is something I know I'd find entirely riveting!

  7. Whoa, thanks @BoscoPiko, I hadn't seen this before.

    I feel all puffed up, haughty, and semi-validated now for having adopted the Thorne brand multivitamin (listed as one of the best brands), while the Kirkland brand oft cited for the D3 regimen doesn't receive such high marks:


    Brands that people think are high-quality multivitamins but are not:

    • Flintstones multivitamins
    • One-A-Day multivitamins
    • Centrum multivitamins
    • Nature Made multivitamins 
    • Store brands like Kirkland vitamins or Equate vitamins
    • Mega Food multivitamins

    There may still be some quality products within these brands, but their multivitamins contain lots of no-no ingredients.

    I’ve tried O2 before it hasn’t really done anything for the pain. However, I’ve never used as a preventative measure in the build up/onset so could well help stop the attack in its tracks

    Yes, this is how so many of us have reported it is effective (and often the only way it is effective) - you wanna catch the attack near onset.

  9. It looks like Lucy had some of the most serious fun EVER doing that. :D

    And the snowplowing maneuver sounds like it could even be a technique for aborting CH attacks or shadows. :) Who amongst the Northerners or high elevationers wants to try first, come the rapidly encroaching wintertime?

    Oh lordy that does sound truly unsightly. :lol: We knew a gal who had a "chi-weenie" (that's what they really call them in the US) - an apparently intentional cross between Dachshund and Chihuahua.

    Wait... so how is that even possible.. well I know how it works lol but did one get low or the other have the hops??:D

    Such a good question lol - I've never researched it, but have thought maybe the Italian Greyhound dad swoops low for the procedure (Italian Greyhounds are already sort of miniatures, much smaller, shorter than 'regular' Greyhounds, so they have that advantage)? :lol:
