Completely new cycle in General Board Posted July 6, 2019 On 6/22/2019 at 1:59 AM, Dana129 said: Well best of luck with busting, I can only imagine how bad the slapbacks might be, as a younger sufferer it is encouraging to hear people get such long periods of pain free living with that kind of medicine, out of curiosity are you on the d3 regimen? 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 and followed Bob's description of method, The liquid was somewhat nasty but I laid down a little later for a nap and slept, and slept pretty good, for just over 2 hours, no ch, no real ch all day. Tonight will continue to probe the possibility that the lidocaine can help with coping between busts. Looking forward to Sunday Bust day. Will keep posting. Peace and PF. Cath.
