  1. Well Brian, I'm not going to go looking for those posts I'm going to ignore them. I refuse to believe it. Aging out is one of the great hopes and I won't allow you to destroy my vanity with the truth!!
  2. Brain on Fire: Can you point to the debunking of the Aging Out theory. I just turned 70 been here for 30 years.
  3. Health News June 4, 2019 / 5:17 PM / 2 days ago FDA approves Lilly's migraine drug as first ever cluster headache treatment https://www.reuters.com/article/us-lilly-emgality-approval/fda-approves-lillys-migraine-drug-as-first-ever-cluster-headache-treatment-idUSKCN1T52VP I don't know ------- I'd try it.
  4. S.E. I live in the Northeast at ground Zero for Lyme. I have Lyme about every 2 years and am a CH for 30 years. It is no joke. The symptoms you describe sound exactly like Babesiosis - more and more common with Lyme diagnosis. I had it. It came on very quickly - bad body aches and serious soaking sweats high fever and headache ( not a cluster but bad) , It often resolves on its own after the symptoms dissipate but it is treatable and needs to be seen by a doctor who has the right chops ideally a infectious disease specialist. It has clinical similarities to Malaria in that it
  5. Love this - My #1 is; Reef early.
  6. Ugh. Interestingly, they have come back not gradually with an acendance to the peak of the cycle, but at full speed -full on - pedal-to-the-metal with its talons out and fully engaged, headbangers, KIPP 10 Screamers and just after the Winter Solstice. I was so happy I really thought I had it licked. It's the beast it's The wretched beast.
  7. Well, here's my news. I've been taking the CBD religiously and as I've said before I've been paying free for a long time, but the beast is back is broken through whatever barrier I had going on and last night I had three screamers kip tans one two three in a row all night long. I should have known I guess, but still grateful for the pain free time. So as twisted melon said, I have no idea what was working and what wasn't. Next. Back to my acupuncturist for electro acupuncture with white laser on the neck. trying to stay away from the sumatriptan but sometimes there's nothing left
  8. This is my post. This is an update since August when I first posted this. I said, "I have not had another attack since April. This is the first year in 10 or more years that that has happened." November now and still PF. I take the CBD in a dropper under my tongue every day - I simply leave it in my car and use about 1ml a day The strength of the CBD varies a lot so in one bottle a ML might be 250mg and in another only 50mg. Read carefully and adjust your dose till you are conformable. Front load the dosage - ie double up the first 3 days. The oil is pleasant in a natural surfactant
  9. Hello gang: I need to report in. I'm Checkin' in like Gunga Din. As I posted over a year ago: "However those of you who have let me whine here for the last decade or more know that I keep the [ triptan] injections handy - and I take a healthy dose of Verap. every day all year - I have the big big O2 tank in the hall all year - I have tried a visit to the Portuguese wizard, busting with shrooms, Chinese doctor and herbs - nothing but licorice water for a week, water water water, exercise rapidly, ice on the carotid artery, steroid dose pak, Cluster vitamin regimen, Opioids, benz
  10. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapastinel Sounds promising but nothing official on its commercial release I could find.
  11. Re visiting this issue. I have been careless with the Triptan injections. Here's why - I cycle once a year now - up to 12 weeks starting in early Spring. So, all last year I did not discontinue my Sumatriptan injection prescriptions. I stockpiled. The cycle started in late April this year (2017) in June I had a very rare chance to take my 14-year-old to London and Paris on a ten-day trip. I loaded up my suitcase with the injections and hit at least every day - sometimes 2 times a day and also used the Imitrex pill as a prophylactic - each for 10 days straight. The first rebou
  12. Keeping tabs on the beast. July 24 is three months in cycle. Heavy triptans use for 10 days. Cycle seems to be extended.

  13. Big Hitter. Welcome; but sorry to meet you. prednesone is great for me - I use a dose pack once in a long (10 week) cycle - just to get a few good days in a row. The other side of the prednisone pack is like - "Welcome back to Hell !" Good luck
  14. Guys: I expound a theory that the ultimate treatment for the headache cycle lies within the pain itself. I have found the Triptans do cause me re-bounds, but only when in high cycle - also found that there is a point in high cycle when I have to go down in my office at home and let 'er rip. No meds - cold turkey - ice on the head - bang and scream and let the attack run its course. It seems almost like there is a number of attacks in a cycle that you must endure in the purest form of the pain for the Beast to begin to release its bloody talons. However those of you who have let m
