    Hubby's Update :)

    Hi T - He has been chronic since June 2009. PF since mid November 2010. Before he became chronic in 2009 he had 6 to 8 weeks cycle during spring and fall. After being chronic for a year and half it's the first time he's been PF for so long. He busted with shrooms from July to October 2010. Took a while but I think the shrooms is what finally broke his cycle. Will now be fully loaded for his next cycle and should be a lot easier to bust at the beginning of the cycle ! Hopefully they will never come back.... :-

    Hubby's Update :)

    Hey everyone hope you all had a great holiday and Happy New Year hope it's a PF one!! Sorry I haven't posted in a while but I'v been pretty busy with work and all the holiday preps ! But have been checking in regularly. Well I have nothing but good new for you all !! My hubby's last bust was end of October and if you remember my last post he was getting worse so he went back to Zomig.....but he didn't need it as much as before he started busting. (Which was 2 a day for a year) He only needed it once every few days and the O2 worked within a few minutes ! In November we saw a new Neuro in Montreal at a top neuro institute. He told him that the verap he was on before wasn't the good one for him and gave him another kind....not sure about the difference with them but anyhow it seems to be doing the job with absolutely no side effects! He has been PF for 2 months now !! :) He only get's a few twinges here and there but that's it !! This is amazing because this time last year he was on Verap, lithium, prednisone and 2 Zomigs a day and still had headaches ! I'm thinking this is probably why he became chronic because he was on so many different meds that it just got out of control and was getting rebound ha's! We are so thankful we found this place because if it wasn't for all of you and your support he wouldn't have detoxed from all the meds and tried busting. And he also learned how to use the o2 properly ! THANK YOU all for being such a great support for us !! Now I just hope I didn't jinks him.... BIG HUGS TO ALL

    Hubby's Update :)

    Thanks everyone for your kind words ! It's nice to finally share some good news with you all ! You are right Tingeling, the busting treatment is probably what broke his cycle and this his why he is doing so well on a low dose of verap!! And we know that at the first sign of the ha's returning he will bust again! Life is good again And it's funny how little problems don't bug me or stress me as much as before ! Nothing compares to what we have been through! I guess it's true when they say what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger! Thank you Clusterbusters 8-) XOX
  5. Hi - My hubby has been suffering from CH headaches for 18 years now and has been chronic for the past year. Personally I think he became chronic when his neuro started giving him lithium & Verap crap! He has also been on 85 mg prednisone for 5 months but has been off since May!THANK GOD! That is a nasty drug! He also take 2 nasal zomig a day which helps most of the time!Keeps the headache away for 10 to 12 hours! He tried imitrex but felt sick after and got bad rebound headache after. We have tried multiple time to bust but no success. But then learned that detox was a must so he did and is now off lithium and Verp since last Wednesday. Has been hell for him got kip scale 10 headache 5 times last Saturday so decided to try 1gm of shrooms and has been a bit better since!Got some Magnesiume and ordered RC seeds and should get them soon! Can't wait to try this treatment! We are very hopeful! Still on zomig but today hasn't taken any but is by the O2 tank constantly! Read a lot of post here and I think you are all awesome and very supportive! Thank you I already feel at home here! It's been a very though year ...hope this will give him relief!

    3 1/2 months into my 2 month cycle

    Don't give up Adam ! Keep fighting things WILL get better! It seems for some people it takes more time including my hubby who has been busting since July. He got worst before it got better. At one point he was getting hit with kip level 8-10 every hour for weeks ! He couldn't work, sleep or eat! But now it is so much better, not completely PF but so much better! Only suffers a 1 to 3 ha's a day that is aborted very quickly with 02 (within 5 min). Just don't give up! Were all here for ya!

    Thank you Cindy for sharing your own experience and for your words of encouragement ! I'm so happy for your success, you are no longer considered chronic I bet that must be the best feeling in the world !!! My hubby has been doing amazingly well After weeks of busting non stop and going through hell the last few weeks with the post dose hits he decided to go back to Zomig (nasal spray) contrary to imitrex wish gave him very bad rebound ha's, Zomig has always given him around 12 hrs pf time, so he would take 2 a day! But now since busting he gets up to 48 hours relief with just 1 zomig. It almost seems like his cycle is ending ! And we know it can't be the zomig alone so were thinking that the busting did the work ! He just needed to take a break from it ! He is now getting better and better everyday If things get bad again he will try MJ's method next ! We still believe strongly in this treatment ! Big hug to you

    New here - My Hubby's story

    Hope I don't jinks him but I'm happy to report that my hubby is doing incredibly well !! Zomig are giving him 10, 15 and some days even 24 hours of Pain free time and in between the O2 works within 5 min. ! Maybe all the busting did the job after all or maybe it's because he hasn't had any alcohol for 3 weeks now...anyhow were enjoying life again ! He is tempted to try the seeds but I'm a bit nervous because things are going so well now I don't want him to stir things up again....not yet !! I think we should wait a few more weeks and see if the Zomig stops working then he can start busting again and try to get rid of this once and for all ! It's up to him decide what is best, I will support either way! Hope you are all doing well ! Checking in daily to see how everyone is doing ! Hipshot you sure make my hubby laugh....love the new song by the way ;D Wishing you all PFD Big hug to all !!

    Nausea and Clusters

    My hubby gets nauseous every time he gets a level 10 headache and when he forces himself to be sick it's like the pressure elevates and his headaches stops soon after.

    Alleyoop - Yes he will diff. try MJ's method Hipshot - No worries my hubby has no intentions of going back on Prednisone. Did you think that because of MJ's post? Because he means dosing with the RC seeds in same way as a Prednison taper..but it's not prednisone it's with the RC Seeds Right now he is just taking a break from all the pain he has been through by taking zomig but he intends on detoxing again soon and trying the seeds. Thank you all for your concern you guy's are all so amazing ! For now were are doing fine His energy is back up he is eating and sleeping well !

    Hi David and thanks for asking - He is doing better since going back on Zomig he gets 10 to 15 hrs of relief with them. He just needed a break from busting. He was getting hit every 2 hours during the day and every hour at night all above kip 7 even 4 days after busting and he was only getting worse! I know it's normal to have post dose hits but this was insane! Now I don't know what to think of all this....should he try again or not ? Does this mean busting won't work for him? He hasn't tried LSA seeds or LSD yet so I'm reading as much as I can to figure out the best plan for him. We won't give up..
