    O2 trick

    Funny, I just did a google search and found almost that exact same issue. J DON'T MIX OXYGEN AND OIL-1.pdf

    O2 trick

    O2 doesn't need a flame to spontaneously combust with hydrocarbons. I know lots of people do this, so I'm not knocking it. Just wanting people to be aware they should be very careful. Example: Say a mechanic comes in with oily hands and is getting hit.. He goes for the bag and bang... He's on fire in a second. Hydro carbons are all around us. Again I know lots of people do this without issue, but just wanting there to be warnings also. Cheers, J

    O2 trick

    We all will do about anything when the CH monster is on our back. The only challenge I see to this method is it could be a bit dangerous if someone were to use a bag with hydrocarbons in on or around it. 100% O2 will flash burn when exposed to hydrocarbons. I've done some pretty risky stuff myself (and didn't even know it at the time) when my monster is in full swing. Cheers, J

    Tyramine 'cheese syndrome' interesting

    BOF, Funny, yea the food list as high in Tyramine is pretty much exactly my CH food trigger list. It's very interesting that they included Cluster Headache in the study information: "Research reveals a possible link between migraine and elevated levels of tyramine. A 2007 review published in Neurological Sciences[19] presented data showing migraine and cluster headaches are characterized by an increase of circulating neurotransmitters and neuromodulators (including tyramine, octopamine and synephrine) in the hypothalamus, amygdala and dopaminergic system. Migraineurs are over-represented among those with inadequate natural monoamine oxidase, resulting in similar problems to individuals taking MAO inhibitors. Many migraine triggers are high in tyramine." There's a few key words that coorelate - CH, Tyramine, Hypothalamus. Maybe someone will connect the dots some day. Cheers, J

    Who’s going to Dallas this year?

    Looks like some of the old crew and many of the new crew will be there this year. I'll be there as well. Looking forward to pizza with DD, Bill, Spiny, Batch and of course some of our new active board members as well. (Freud, etc.).. Looking forward to it!! Cheers! J

    This helped me- hopefully will help others

    ClusterSwarm, I rarely ever edit posts, but I changed the title from "Cured" to "helped". Claiming a cure is a bit of a sore spot with Ch'ers. Many have claimed to be cured, and rarely does the said cure work for anyone else, or it stops working for the person claiming the cure. CH is a nasty condition. It changes all the time. When I was episodic I went 2 years between attacks (cycles) once and other times it was 1 month between cycles. It's great that you think you're cured. It's always good to stay positive. Just remember that CH does just stop (or pauses) for most everyone from time to time. It's just what it does. No one knows why. Cheers, J

    Simple Technique to Abort Headaches Right at Onset!

    manishkpratap, I'm also in the camp of only sometimes I get a blocked nose or sinus. It's also always after I'm hitting a Kipp 6 or higher, never before. So I'd suspect the sinus inflammation is a result of the attack, not cause. I can definitely appreciate your sharing what works for you. On the other hand if the blocked nose or sinus was the cause of the attack. Wouldn't it stand to reason that anytime we get a cold, flu etc, then we'd also get attacks when we're sick with a blocked sinus or nose? Just thinking out loud. Again, I think it's great that you found something that works for you. Cheers, J

    ClusterSwarm, I think what you have stumbled across are trigger foods, not necessarily a cure. It's a known fact that foods high in a chemical called Tyramine are highest on the CH trigger list. Alcohol, Chocolate, Fermented Cheeses (the processed stuff is ok, since it's not really cheese and not made by fermenting milk), Aged or preserved meats, etc. All of these are high in Tyramine, as Tyramine is a byproduct of food breaking down. Case in point: One person might be able to eat a banana without a CH attack, but another person it's a trigger for a CH kipp 10 attack. Why? One person ate the banana when it was just starting to ripen (low in Tyramine). The other ate the banana when it was fully or overripe. The overripe banana is VERY high in Tyramine. Now, why Tyramine is a primary trigger has yet to be identified, but it's a fact that foods high in Tyramine are also the most common CH food triggers. Cheers, J

    “Cure”

    I'm feeling some tension in some posts here. Everyone has a bad day, week, month etc. Let's not make personal jabs. I see a lot of good intention on posts that are being interpreted at a different angle. Back on the thread subject: I used a very strong mint lotion type stuff on my temples a long long long time ago. It seemed to help some, but wow... Don't get it too near your eyes. J
