    Another simple "cure"

    I think this is your reply, I clicked on the link you posted previously in this thread and here it is, nice work! Maybe they weren't as successful as they thought at deleting it, haha. "On a recent show, the doctors talked about “alarm clock headaches,” which they also described as cluster headaches. I’ll bet every time you cover any topic, someone claims that you have understated its severity and misstated its treatment . . . but I can’t imagine a more inappropriate treatment of cluster headaches than that show provided. Maybe there is such as thing as “alarm clock headaches” that is different from cluster headaches, and maybe the simple suggestions on the show will work for those alarm clock headaches. But cluster headaches are practically universally agreed to be the worst pain that a human can experience (see wikipedia, if nothing else), and they are not brought on by talking on the phone too late, worrying about the grating alarm clock noise, or by stress, or by any of the things the show suggested—and they are far, far from being treatable by those means. Here’s the thing: the AVERAGE TIME between the first doctor visit and a cluster headache diagnosis is SEVEN YEARS. Doctors don’t understand this relatively rare affliction, and as a result many sufferers have no idea what they have. They get teeth removed; they get treated, ineffectually, for sinus headaches or tension headaches or migraines; they suffer agonizingly and their suffering is discounted not just by physicians but by their friends and, often, their loved ones. To minimize cluster headaches as you did, and to suggest simplistic “treatments” for them, is to perpetuate the misdiagnosis, the agony, and the stigmatization. You could make such a difference if you treated this topic appropriately! Lots of people would be happy to help you." GIVE 'EM HELL!!

    THMH, Now that I have met you in person, I can say that you are a handsome fella and a very nice person to boot! Any woman who would let clusters get in the way isn't worth your trouble. Enjoy life, one day it'll surprise you :-* (on the cheek, of course.)

    NMDA receptor antagonists

    Well don't forget to order the cardridges I did these with my sister in college. We had fun, a bit of a head rush, but wears off pretty quickly. Made us giggle.

    To my second family on busters

    Well, I would just like to say congratulations to you on the beginning of the rest of your life. Make it good, do what makes you happy! Who knows, maybe somebody will come along the same road you're on, and join you. Maybe not. Either way, you'll have a cool car, a loyal dog and an awesome tattoo!!

    chronic paroxysmal hemicrania ??

    Isn't that a bit of an oxymoron? But seriously, if it is CPH it will likely respond to indomethacin.
