    Zolmitriptan AM/PM

    Zomig works wonders for me but it is a double edged sword, it stops the attack but it also extends the cycle. For me the only way to end the cycle is to get off the Zomig for at least 7 days or I am back in another cycle. I try to only loose Zomig when I am on vacation so I can enjoy my time while I am there and not ruin it for my wife.

    Prednisone

    Be careful with the prednisone, if you use It to much you can suffer bone loss.

    When you know better but do it anyway!

    Siegfried, yes I have been chronic migraine for most of my life. I used to get clusters at least 3 days a week but I have never had a cluster without having a migraine first. My attacks are also long, 3 to 5 hour hits with 30 minutes between hits. I busted a few years ago and I got my clusters under controll but I can not seem to get the migraines under controll. Seeds seemed to help but they are no longer working for the migraines.
  4. I have had my clusters under controll for a while but the migraines are kicking my butt. I got caught up in the Triptan rabbit hole 36 Zomig in 6 weeks, followed by 36 in 30 days. The migraines were consuming my life again. I stopped the D3 program and I decided that I needed to stop taking Zomig! This set my migraines into over drive until one day when I hade Cluster events during the migraines for 2 days, the following day I was headache free. I started up the D3 program again. Its been a week and so far its been way better. I am getting short migraines that start about 3 pm and last until about 11 pm. I am able to get rid of them without taking anything. I hope that by me posting this I can stop someone from going down this path.
  5. So I slipped getting into the back of my truck and took a good hit to the shin which resulted in me getting Cellulites. Doctor started me on Ciprofloxacin HCL 500mg twice a day. Before this I was having migraines every day which at some point will trigger clusters. Usually antibiotics give me headaches but this antibiotic has seemed to stop the migraines. Has anyone experienced something similar?

    Question about cluster headaches

    I know when the cycle is going to end when mine change sides. 99% of mine are on the right side when the cycle ends I get one extremely bad one on the left side.
  7. Thanks for the kind words. I guess that having migraine pain defiantly sucks but at least I can function with them whereas with clusters I could not.
  8. I have been getting Migraine headaches every day for the last month, yet I thank god that my Clusters are under controll!

    Sumatriptan where has this been all my life

    Triptans are a blessing and a curse. I use them when on vacations so that I do not ruin our trip. The problem is taking them seems to keep you in a cycle, like your brain needs them. I have to get off them cold turkey which is a real headache lol!
  10. I start out at 15ml/s and huff fast and hard for a few minutes than turn down to 8ml/s and take a deep breath and hold it until the bag fills and breath out and take another deep breath until I get relief.

    Why can't not being in pain be a good thing?

    PTSD and depression. I remember before I found this site and with the help of a few members on this site that pushed me along and I had success with busting, I used to have a small bag that I had all my rescue medicines, Zomig, PM asprin, energy drink, flexerall, Naproxin, Percodan etc. If I ever forgot my black bag I was panacked there was no way I could make it through the day. As I sit now thanks to Cluster Busters and the great people on this site I am free of depression I no longer have my black bag and best of all I want to live again! Cluster headaches are evil.

    Energy drinks

    First I need to explain that I never get a cluster headache without first having a Migraine that stays completely through the attack. I can have Migraines by them self but never a cluster by its self. I can not say for sure that energy drinks make a difference with my clusters unless I take a zomig with the energy drink. Now for Migraines I take 3 Advil PM and drink a energy drink and it seems to stop them from getting worse, may be like it is stopping the cluster attack.

    The more stress I am under the better it is for CH, but when the stress goes away I’m screwed!
