  1. Income for a congressman is 175k to 225k for the speaker. They are all multi millionaires, you can go online and see how much money big pharma, oil and gass, doctors groups and hospitals give them to stay uninvolved. It is a shame.

    Sumatriptan Help

    If I take triptans for more than 3 days I will get rebound headaches. I have to go cold turkey off the triptans or the headaches will come everyday. I am retired so I only take triptans when I have something I have to do and O2 is not getting it done.
  3. One thing I can not understand is when my life is super stressful and seems out of controll I do not have headaches but as soon as things smooth out I get hit hard. Anyone have the this type of thing?

    Zolmitriptan spray - how fast does it work?

    Zomiz nasil spray worked great for me and real fast, but rebounds were insane. When my insurance was strong i used to go through 75 nasel sprays in 3 mounth plus what my doctor used to give me as samples. Now days my insurance will not pay for the spray which is actually a blessing in the long run. Busting, O2 and energy drinks and an occasional Zomig tab for me now.

    They said I was nuts

    Over 30 years of having real bad Migraines so I thought. Went to the doc and he asked why I was sweating and looking uncomfortable? I told him I am dealing with kidney stones. He asked me how kidney stones feel compared to my headaches? I told him they are a piece of cake. That is when he started treating me for CH and it was the first relief I had. Being misdiagnosed is unfortunately common. You have found the right place, there are a lot of great people on this site that can and will help you.

    CH lasting longer than 3 hours- Are they Shadows?

    Coolestnurse, When I get CH attacks they last at least 3 hours and have had them last for 5 hours. The time between hits is usually with about 1/2 hour. The most hits I have ever had in a day was 4, typically I only get 3 hits a day.

    Vitamin D3 not working?

    Brandylynn, These Clusters are a strange beast. yes I feel the same way as you, it seems that anything you take all the time will stop working. I use triptans on occasion, but I try not to use them unless I am someware that I can not use oxygen or if I have to be someware real quick. For me triptans cause me to have more cycles if I use them more than one day.

    Sound Triggers - Young Kids

    Dmlonghorn, sorry you need to be here but glad to have you. For me sound is not a trigger. But being started especially when sleeping can be a trigger. There are some great people on this site that can and will help you. Good luck.
  10. Markk, You have a similar situation that I have. Before I retired every time I was looking forward to going somewhere or doing something special I would get hit with clusters. I would also get clusters when the stress of work went away. The only way I was able to keep working was that 99% of my cluster attacks started with a Migraine at 3:00pm and with in 1 1/2 hour the clusters would start. This happened 3 to 5 days a week every week over 30 years. Thank god I found this site and thank god you found this site. There are a lot of great people in this Community that can and will help you. They have saved my life. Please look into the busting process and Oxygen.
  11. CH is a strange beast. Back in 96 i got devorced and for some reason I was CH and migraine free for one year. One complete year without a headache. Well they came back and have been back since.

    Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all my cluster buddys and their families. May we all have some pain free time with our loved ones.

    When do you know your cluster cycle is over?

    Before busting I was 3 to 5 days a week and I knew that I had a couple days relief comming after a monster hit, one that is all you can handle plus a little bit more.

    CPAP users

    For years when the season changes my CH starts acting up especially during winter months. I found out that the cold air being pumped into my nose from the CPAP was causing a real problem for me. I was waking up with headaches and for me almost all headaches will bring the beast out. If any of you are having issues like this you might try a heated hose and preheating the water before bed. It has made a big difference for me.
