  1. To me, it sounds like you are getting shadows from the booze. And just shadows! If it were me, I would think that the busts had worked, but my biggest trigger was still active. And to me, it sounds like your busts are keeping you out of hell right now, but another one or two may be needed to be able to drink. :) 

    If it is the 'normal' time for your cycle, then upping your D3 is a very good idea. A bit of a buffer is great way to go!

    Sorry that you got the 'news' on aging out, but happy that you are getting relief!!

  2. Don't short yourself! You know a ton about CH, if that is what you are referring to. 

    I too read 'stuff' and tend to take it at face value. I suppose that is because we have to trust the 'experts' to some degree because, well, they are the experts! Unless it is important to me personally, then I research a lot of papers. You do the same likely. Then you spot the misses and inaccuracy of many of the papers out there!!! The more you know, the more you see that they don't know. :)

    I agree. He left out a lot! He had not experienced it likely, nor researched it. It seems mostly that he was recounting his experience, not the community experience. So, not well researched in my book. 

    But, exposure is good.

  3. Hi Cromestar! 

    I just wanted to be sure that you are taking the co-factors with the D3. They are very important and you need the lot for it to work well. You need the K2, Omega Three, calcium, etc. that go with it. Can you fill us in which ones you are taking?

    Pepcid is for excess stomach acid. It is given here for reducing the acid release when eating that causes some people pain. So, anti-acid, not antihistamine. Perhaps one of the other meds given is prone to causing tummy issues? It is over the counter here now. As is Benadryl. 

    It is disturbing to see all the people who are suffering post Covid!!! 

  4. Hey Madam,

    What units is the '216' in? nmol/L or ng/ml? The values for the different units are very different. 

    216nmol/L is a low number.

    216ng/ml is a high number.

  5. Tony, I saw two genes listed on FB a year ago now. At least. I am delighted that the research is moving forward! I do have the migraine and sleep-wake ones.

    Won't it be interesting if D is affected by the same genes, or some of them? I think so!!!! 

    I also find it heartening that combined, they found more genetic information to add! And the blood work you submitted may have been factored in too! They want all the info that they can get and verify. :)

  6. Hey Nugget! Welcome to the group. 

    Batch - @xxx is the main guy for the D3 Regimen. If you know that you are low, then start with 10,000/day - minimum. Along with all the other co-factors. They matter!! I would do this for a month and get my levels tested again. What is your D3 currently?

    My first try was not perfect either. However, I have been cycle free for years now thanks to the Regimen. :) So, I am big believer in it! And yes, I am sure that it is the the D3 preventing cycles. All that I need to do to check that is to stop for two days and then deal with the hits that follow. Funny, I still check that at least once or twice a year during the normal cycle time for me. 

    Hopefully Batch will see the tag and give you a more in depth reply.

  7. Bilal, I have been taking them daily for years now!! In my experience, there is no worry about the Regimen failing if used year round.

    I take 10,000 of D daily, along with the rest. 

    Batch is getting a trial set up to record the effectiveness for others. :)

  8. My husband and I take all of them, including the Quercetin and Turmeric. My blood work is where it needs to be too. Well, D3 is at 105, but they know why. :) 

    I am pretty sure that Batch recommends both of them now with COVID out there.

  9. Hey Tiffany! no contradiction to me. You are correct. An MRI will not show nerve damage. It will show compression. Or that is my understanding. Maybe if the nerve atrophied, it might show as smaller than normal.

    I have had three over the years and all returned with 'No nerve compression present.'  That does not mean that there was not a problem, just that compression of the Trigeminal nerve could be ruled out, so that helped rule out Trigeminal Neuralgia.  :) They look for compression of the nerve where it comes through the skull. 

    An MRI is usually recommended to rule out other conditions.

  10. Oh my g..!! How can they do that??? 

    Sorry Tony, but this just rips at my heart. So stupid for the medico's to wait a freaking week + to fix a problem they created. JERKS!

    Hugs to you and your friend! :wub:

  11. Hi Khoogeveen and welcome!

    I have not tried a move to help my head, but we have joked about doing that or going to The Bomba Shack en masse for relief!! :) That is a little place south of the US that serves very special shakes.

  12. My first try with the D3 was not a success story. I was in the middle of a viscous cycle. In addition, when I added the B vitamins, my tongue peeled That was in response to the B12, which is notorious for causing that mess. However,  I noticed that my hits ramped up more slowly and were a bit more mild. That was nice.

    The next summer, I had my D3 checked in August and found it to be about 63ng/ml. In the trash for working in the sun all summer! So, I began the regimen again, minus the B. My cycle never showed, Granted, I did 'other' stuff to head it off too, but it was the first year with no cycle for me. 

    Then, I stayed on the D3 year round. It has been a huge help! Even eliminating some cycles completely! :) 

    It seems that when people begin taking the vitamins, their hits become more mild and easier to deal with. Then, they go away. It make take a week and it may take 3. It's a personal thing.

    I have not heard of people having issues like slapbacks at all with D3. Initially you may get some days are better than others kind of thing. But when it kicks in and your D3 levels are high enough, the whole mess can just melt away
