  1. Dana, not exactly, but last D25 H was at 100 and I am a conscious consumer of high quality low carb whole foods and pretty mindful of anti -inflammatory foods and supplements. I am curious and am looking into the protocol and am leaning toward just following the regime. Thanks for considering me as younger... mindset yes,.. interesting today I did get set up with some lidocaine and gave it a whirl. I did not have any current CH activity, but for me in the daylight not so much unless I fall asleep, so I really wanted to take a nap as the nocturnal hits harass me out of real rest. I laid back an
  2. CH Father, where or is there a link to get to the instructions on the Lidocaine drops referred to on Bob's doc. I have a prescription for the 4% solution. Bob explains and we will move forward with that and what the pharmacist may suggest. we are approaching our 4th bust. The nocturnal slap backs have been particularly mean Kip7-8  and take longer to abort, wanted to try the Lidocane to see if I can take the edge off and/or extend the time in between hits? aaannnnddd is a 60 mcg dose of L enough to be an effective dose for a bust? Just trying not to waste medicine and time!! Thanks for getting back to me. 357 out

    "D. Lidocaine drops.
    You need a prescription for this but it is pretty cheap and can help sometimes. For clusters you need a 4% solution and it is applied using an eyedropper. 'The instructions for its use can be found on our website and it is very important that it is done properly or it won't work.'
    It is a way to apply a treatment similar to an SPG block that you can administer by yourself.

     

    It's an abortive in the form of an anesthesia that can sometimes help you get some sleep. Lidocaine sprays do not help. Don't waste your time.
    The trick is to take a dropper full, lay down on your back, on your bed, with your head over the edge, tilted backward and downward, head tilted about 30 degrees toward the side of your cluster, and insert the liquid. You want to bath the nerve ganglion located in the backside of your sinus cavity with the liquid."

  3. Trucker, This is a good place to get some excellent information and learn you are not on your own. This community gives value by sharing their experiences, The good, bad, ugly. do's and dont's very valuable when negotiating CH. Read the "New Users-Read Here First" the link is at the top of the page (blue bar). There are good and caring people here with a common goal. PF or Pain Free. I am currently busting a cluster cycle, I am episodic and am getting better at being ready to push the beast back into the hole it crawled out of. Take your time here the wealth of information will change your lif

    half time

    Hi, Same here... been a rough go this time around. Points during this bust at 3 LSA 50 RC seeds and each 5 day wait has been brutal, nights especially on the hour hits that take 20 min 02 and Ice. Today on a desperate note went with my guy into Colorful Colorado for a couple of strains of cannabis and some cbd transdermal cream... hmmm. I quit smoking weed 25 years ago! I was in the middle of a hit while Mark shopped a local Dispensary. When he got back I started using the cream right away, either the CH was on its way out or the cream did something, not sure, but was out for an hour and a ha
  5. So many questions... Cluster cycle in progress... 2 busts behind using RC seeds. After the second bust had some high KIP slapbacks... 6 yesterday and then enter a different set of symptoms today just a long ass pounder started early this morning and I am going to bed with it... did O2, Ice, slam cold drinks, Hot foot soak, seriously disappointing. I never used to get frickin Migraines but these symptoms more closely resemble M and not CH. Will check the playing well with others and see what other avenues I can pursue to treat this "New" head pain! what a frickin nightmare. I thought I was equi
  6. Dana, absolutely would credit LSD for the remission., however, I was young had a different hormone profile, I was an aerobics instructor and my remissions after my 20's have continued to be spaced out so much so I did not fully understand what was happening when a bout would pass through (For sure at 59 I Just do not really like tripping any more) It has been 3 years since my last encounter and subsequent bust. This bust has been particularly difficult. This day after yesterday's RC seed bust I have had 6 hits and this 6th one has been pestering since 4 pm now over 4 hours... not normal.. Usu
  7. Cathb357... feel like a veteran Been doing Clusters now for 40 years. My first I was 19 and not another for 7 or 8 years later (Hind Sight) My husband and I liked to trip and during the first 8 years of our marriage we would trip occasionally 4 or 5 times a year. After I became a mother, priorities changed and I quit. 3 or 4 sessions in my 30's and 40's very clueless during these attacks, usually triptans and opiates and have 3 steroid protocols. Then in my 50's the "ramp up" maybe related to hormonal changes but definitely a tighter episodic circus. During this particular decade we (my husban

  9. I am new here, although, I have visited periodically over a decade. I have learned much here in the alternative treatment arena, thanks to peeps like yourself. With that said I am sure you are doing the same in the cancer arena... do not hesitate to read Ty Bolinger's book "Cancer Think Outside the Box" and a web presence called "The Truth about Cancer" Susanne Summers also has a new book out this year I cannot remember the name but easy to find... God bless you and healing on your wife.. In our prayers. Cath
