  1. Thought this might interest those of ya that incorporate energy shots with O2 to abort.....a good clusterhead buddy came for a visit this weekend and told me about these.....called Pure Kick and available here in okieland at Dollar General, 6 pkts for a buck!!!  Charles just mixes one in a bathroom sized Dixie cup and keeps it in the fridge....tosses it, hits the O2, aborts, and mixes another shot before he goes back to bed and sez they work just as well as the 99 cent shots that DG carries!

  2. Happy New Year ya'll!  Hope everyone enjoyed the celebration......meh, I turned off the tube, put on my jammies, and went to bed at 8:30!

    So , I ran across this poem by our very own @Fast Eddie ....I'm fairly certain it's posted here but it's been a long time.....I first heard it at either the Portland conference in 2010 or Las Vegas in 2012 when Eddie recited it....great poem by a great guy!

     

    ‘We call each other clusterheads"
     by Eddie Langford

     

    There are many types of headaches
     I'm sure you've had your share
     From stress and strains and migraines
     To a sinus one here and there

    But let me tell you about one friend
     That puts them all to shame
     This headache is a demon
     And a cluster is it's name

    To see a full blown cluster
     Is a very scary sight
     It can happen in a moments time
     No matter day or night

    It is the worst pain known to man
     It will put us on our knees
     We pray someone will knock us out
     And give us some relief

    We call the start a shadow
     A sensation in the brain
     That says "the demons coming back"
     To taunt us once again

    The brain turns into cornmeal mush
     The eyeball starts exploding
     We moan and cry and rock our heads
     There’s no doubt how bad we're hurting

    We call each other clusterheads
     Our tiny little crew
     Of others who are just like us
     Who know what we go through
     So please don't say you understand
     Just what we're going through
     Unless you are a clusterhead
     You haven't got a clue

  3. Appreciate all the good wishes ya'll!

    Got the MRI and follow up visit with the doc....left feeling pretty damned confused!!

    Said MRI indicated surgery was needed but because my pain level has reduced significantly and that since I'm in fairly good physical shape otherwise, along with the risks involved by surgery his advice was to take it easy and come back in if the pain becomes unbearable again....

    Feeling kinda anxious about the whole deal but really can't afford to go see another doc for a 2nd opinion right now so I reckon I'll just keep on keeping on!

  4. Welcome to the community @Kprice, sorry you needed to join us!

    I've been around these online cluster support communities for 15+ years and I can't recall ever seeing the symptoms you've described!

    There has been evidence of triptans causing rebound headaches and many folks subscribe to the school of thought that the can extend cycles.

    Since you're new here I would urge you to look into the vitamin D3 anti inflammatory regimen in our clusterbusters files section!  It works very well for many folks and should lessen the number and severity of individual hits at the very least!

  6. Well ya'll, I'd appreciate your prayers, positive thoughts, healing juju...whatever ya got, please send it my way!

    A little over 2 weeks ago I began experiencing severe pain in my neck and left shoulder....I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease  in 2013 after an MRI showed 2 herniated cervical disc's and 3 herniated lumbar disc's so I initially thought it was just a flare up of the normal daily pain I've been having all these years....however, within a couple days the pain was unbearable, and after my wife found her tough, old Marine in a scalding hot shower crying like a baby, she made me let her haul me to the ER.

    After copious amounts of IV pain meds and muscle relaxers the ER doc sent me for a catscan...when I got back he told me the catscan revealed deterioration of C5 and C7 to the point that the resulting stenosis was putting direct pressure on my spinal cord and that he was going to refer me to a spine surgeon.

    Went to see him last week and after examining me he said that from looking at my 2013 MRI and the ER catscan that he thought that I was teetering on the edge of total paralysis!!  Damn, it felt like all the air had been sucked outta the room!!  When we got to the car I told my wife I needed to just sit there for a bit cuz my heart was about to beat out of my chest!!

    So, a new MRI is scheduled for next Tuesday to prepare for neck surgery and not gonna lie, I am freakin terrified!!

  7. @spiny, here's another one of my favorite JP tunes...hell, they're all my favs.....I had never seen the lyrics but I memorized what I thought I was hearing and figured out the chord progression....played the song on stage for many years before I bought the anthology set (with printed lyrics inside the cd case), and found out it was "The Great Compromise".......I thought it was a song about a guy gettin it stuck in his arse so all those years I'd been singing "The Greek Compromise"
