  1. Hey Willie! Welcome to the community and thanks for posting this! Sadly, I was a member here when our founder put up the post advising us of Wills passing......his Papa has really stepped up and done an incredible thing in his memory for the Clusterhead community!! I'm not sure, but this might possibly be a part of the ongoing clusterbusters genetic study but it seems strange that they can't advertise to recruit participants!! Dallas Denny
  2. Hi Kimbrit and welcome to the community!! I was prescribed and have taken Tegretal.....the side effects are horrendous and it did nothing to help clusters for me (it's a commonly prescribed drug for tic de la rue which is what this particular doc dx'd me) DD Edited to add: what Chf said....high flow oxygen is the best thing that ever happened for clusterheads
  3. G'afternoon FunTime! Looks like Spiny and Chf pretty much covered anything I would advise so I'll just say Welcome to the community but sorry you have the need to join us!! Very cool that you've been accepted for the psilocybin trial!! Was really bummed to learn that i was too old to participate.....guess no one told em 70 year olds have clusters too!! Dallas Denny
  4. G'evenin CM! You need to be detoxed from the trex for at least 5 days prior to busting for optimum efficacy! Dallas Denny
  5. Hi Bluesfan! Indomethacin is typically used as a diagnostic tool....if your headaches respond well to it then what you have is Hemicrania Continua...if you truly have clusters, it won't help. DD
  6. Hi Anita! I see Chf has you lined out on LSA busts so I'll address vitamin M. Although a few folks are able to source and purchase shrooms, the vast majority of us have had to take up mycology and learn how to grow our own. It's a fairly easy learning curve and not too terribly expensive to get set up but it does take a minimum of between 35 and 42 days to realise the "fruit of your labor". Just watch the youtube video series entitled " Let's grow mushrooms "......they'll demo everything you need to know......you out can source all needed supplies from Wally world for less than $50 with the exception of the brown rice flour, coarse grade vermiculite and a spore syringe. Whole foods or any health food store for the brf at approximately $5 for a 2# bag.....coarse grade vermiculite is only available in large 3 cu ft bags at commercial landscape supply stores in my area and costs around $35......Spore syringes are available from Spore Works and run around $20.....so between $100 & $125 for a batch of "pain free livin"!! Dallas Denny
  7. Welcome to the community Jimmy! To be honest, you've arrived at the site (and forum) with the best information and solutions for clusters!! We have many members with in excess of 20 or 30 years doin battle with the Beast.....my first cycle occurred in South Vietnam in the Spring of 1968.....followed by a complete remission of 15 years.....2nd cycle was in 1983 and I've been episodic ever since. Great that you have Oxygen in place!! So first, push your doc for imitrex injections.....the pills are much too slow acting! Second, check out the Vitamin D3 anti inflammatory regimen in the CB files section of the board......works well for many folks to either squelch a cycle or at least reduce the frequency and intensity of the attacks. And read about "busting" a cycle using tryptamines and let us know about any questions you might have in the "Share your busting stories" section of the board... Dallas Denny
  8. Hi Jacob and welcome to the community! We have several members here from Illinois including our illustrious leader who is from the Chicago area! You should make plans to attend our annual clusterbusters conference in mid September which is being held in Chi Town this year if you possibly can......we had over 180 attendees last year in Austin and I hear we're on pace to surpass that number this year!! Nothing like meeting a bunch of folks that know first hand what you're dealing with!! Dallas Denny
  9. G'evenin tvan! I've been here since the day this forum went live in 2009 and can only remember one member from Wisconsin and unfortunately he's no longer active here... But, there'll be around 200 clusterheads in Chicago in a little less than 4 months for our annual clusterbusters conference if you can swing it!! This year will be my 4th and believe me, it is an unforgettable, life changing experience!! Dallas Denny
  10. G'mornin tsciant! I've been using welding oxygen for 8 years....welding ox and medical ox comes out of the same faucet, the only difference is that medical tanks are vacuumed prior to being filled while they just Crack the valve and do a "sniff" test on welding cylinders. As CHf advised, DO NOT let them know that you intend to breathe it!! Dallas Denny
  11. G'mornin Nick! I've a good friend who's an Aussie clusterhead.....I'm sure he's in bed asleep right now buy I'll send him a message and see if he'll drop by and hook up with you. He's one of the admins of the Aussie facebook clusterhead support group so I'm sure he could put you in contact with other ch'ers from down under as well. Dallas Denny
  12. Welcome to the community Lewisjones! From some of your comments and the vernacular used, I'm guessing you're somewhere in the UK under NHS care? If so, Chf's advice regarding welding oxygen may not work for you.....however, under NHS guidelines, high flow oxygen is recognized as a front line treatment for clusters......contact OUCH-UK for help getting the HOOF form sorted out and whether your doc likes it or not, he's bound to supply you with O2. Dallas Denny
  13. Welcome to the community Kevlar and ditto on what Chf said^^^^ Dallas Denny
  14. G'mornin Shadawn! I thought long and hard before starting this thread due to the negativity and controversy surrounding Doc Mike, my fear that it would be perceived as just one more "snake oil" treatment, and the fact that the treatment consisted of steroids.......your post brought me to tears and I'm so happy that I shared this information here!! I think your Dad brings the total number of folks I've heard personal reports from to 17 between here and fb where the thread originated. We recently had a report from a chronic clusterhead whose parents had made the trip with her to see doc Mike.......as she was talking to him prior to getting her injections, she asked if it might help her mother who has suffered with fibromyalgia for many years....he ask where she was (in the motel room) and sent a nurse over to the room to get her.....both got the injections and are painfree for the first time in many years! Thank you for sharing your story here! Dallas Denny
  15. So, we either have the latest incarnation of Danny Boy here or Quack Shevel in the flesh......either way, FECK YOU and go away!!
  16. Hey cdog! Thus far a total of 15 folks have gotten the injections....."Hollywood Dan" is coming up on 1 year pf the 16th of May and has had the best results....patient #3 has been pf for several months now......the patient after razorPP got only a few weeks from both his first and 2nd round of injections.....several folks have been to see Doc Mike in the past several weeks and all have been pf since getting the shots. DD
  17. G'mornin Shay! Welcome to the community! Attending the conference will be life changing for both of you! The only thing that he might be overwhelmed by is knowledge gained and the cluster bud love! ! And, we have many, many supporters who attend as well.....we love our supporters!!! Dallas Denny
  18. Yup jtux, great question!! I think most folks know the story of Flash and Pink Shark Mark (I had the opportunity to chat with Flash on facebook recently which was pretty damned cool!), but I've never heard a story regarding LSA. I will say though that in my much younger recreational days, it was common knowledge that you could trip balls on HBWR....I took a heroic dose in the summer of 72 and went to see Black Oak Arkansas and Grand Funk Railroad at the Cotton Bowl!! I did receive a text back from brother Bob.....said it was a long story and he was between congressional meetings at Headache on the Hill and will get back to me later! DD
  19. Hey jtux!! Can't answer your question.....it was included in known busting agents when I first set foot here in 2007....I've sent a text to BobW to see if he has that info. DD
  20. Sorry to read this razor! Hope you can make the trip back to Okieland soon! To update on the other recent guinea pigs....er, uh patients.....patient #8 got the Dexalog 12 injections on January 14th and remained pf only until the27th.....they contacted doc Mike, made a trip for a 2nd round and has been pf for 7 days.....the big bonus here is that this guy has been on a high daily dose of prednisone for over 2 years......during the first pf period he was able to titrate down to 20mg/day.....and has now been free of the poison for a week and is on no other blockers and prepared to start busting when this round of injections wears off!! Patient #9 has been pf for 16 days since receiving the shots.....I've known this guy for many years and he has tried everything including regular busting which helped but he still hadn't had over 45 hours pf in his 13 year battle with the Beast!! 16 days pf has got to feel like an eternity to this young man!! Finally, yesterday patient #10 flew in from the UK to get the injections and to my knowledge there are 2 more folks with appointments scheduled later this month and 1 in late March with several others sittin on the fence or saving money!! DD
  21. Welcome Andrew! With respect to oxygen, some folks in the UK experience problems sourcing O2 thru ya'lls NHS....however, unless there are underlying conditions that contraindicate its use, it is recognized as a viable treatment in the UK....if you have any problems of that nature, contact OUCH UK and they will provide assistance with the HOOF form. Where are you located in the UK? I know several clusterheads in England and Scotland....a friend in Scotland hosts a couple meet n greet events every year.....nothing like meeting someone who "gets it" and understands exactly what you deal with! Dallas Denny
  22. Courtesy of our friend dinmerced Chf...he's the one I mentioned that has used them....it definitely beats the hell out of what I paid between the doc visit and the charge for blood work! DD
  23. Here ya go, go to this link and search for 25 hydroxy d blood test http://www.lifeextension.com All of the D3 regimen co factors can be ordered online at Pipingrock.com DD
  24. Meg, there is an online business that many folks are using for the 25 (OH) D blood test.....you order the test online, they send orders to the quest diagnostics near you, go get his blood drawn, and receive the results either online at their site or via email I believe....I haven't used them yet but know someone who has and it's much cheaper than going thru a doc.....you just need to establish his baseline, begin the regimen and retest every couple of months until he reachs the 80 ng/ml level......I'll get that link and post it for you.
