  1. Hi Wanda thanks so much for this. I tried getting an appointment with Dr. Christine Lay @ Womens Hospital but still no luck.Pushing! Please PM me and I will give you the number of an oxygen co. that claimed they can deliver within a day or two with a Dr's Prescription. Best, Michael
  2. Thank you Jonathan for the information and experience- the good news, I've finally been able to find a PCP (family dr. as they call them here) who seems to be smart, sympathetic and open minded. My hope is that he will prescribe the O2 by early next week. I will seek out the verapamil instant release versions as soon as I can and talk to my Dr. about monitored use. I am just curious regarding the D3 regimen, I am taking about 10k+ IU per day (mainly in the early evening since my attacks generally come in @ 2-4 am.) is 10K enough? Also regarding all the different co-drugs e.g magnesium etc, wh
  3. Thank you all who replied for your concern, comments and suggestions. I cannot say how much this means to me, because I know I am not facing this alone. The commuinty on clusterbusters keeps me sane. You guys are out there. Only you understand. Thank you without end.
  4. Thanks CH father, Currently I am just going with Vitamin D (oil) @ 10k IU ...I feel it has lowered the frequency. I am reluctant to do the drugs as I have yet to find a neurologist or DR to help guide me through them. Furthermore am terrified of the potential slap back affect. I have at hand 5mg Zomig Nasal Sprays, as well as pregabalin 25mgs / propranolol HCL 40mg/ Mylan-Verapamil SR 240mg. I've decided to use to the Zomig tonight if the pain becomes uncontrollable tonight. Edit: I am desperately trying to get Oxygen as well but my neuro said that he would not prescribe oxygen and told me t
  5. This is intensely personal but I think only you guys would understand. A few days ago I thought I was getting over a cluster that has been around for a month. Suddenly at 2 am, I went for 2 and half our session where I found myself both exhausted and restlessly pacing my living room like a crazy person, trying to keep quiet and not wake up our baby. Since they generally happen at night , My wife has rarely seen me go through such a bad cluster, and I despite me explaining it all the symptoms, the thoughts of pain freeness of death and what a relief that would be (which go away thankfully aft
  6. Thank you so much will try and connect.
  7. Hi Devonrex, thanks for the insight. Have you had any reccomendable help from local Drs. in Calgary. I am trying to find a specialist here in Toronto but it has been difficult.
  8. Thanks for your insight Pebbles. I am going through a cluster now, which I thought was receding because I had three days hardly any shadows and then last night had it pretty rough. Toronto has been going through high /low pressure swings and saw a full moon and wondered about that as well.
  9. I am based in Toronto and recently going through a bad cluster period. Both last week and today, I experienced rapidly increasing pressure (pain) behind my eye as well as a bit of nausea with the onset of the rapid change in weather from being totally cloudless to suddenly overcast with low could and rain. Just wondering if anyone else has a noted a similar experience. Apparently rapid barometric pressure change is also noted as a prevalent factor for other headaches as well.
  10. Thanks @CHfather! Have an appointment with the Neuro tommorrow. Hopefully will be first step in building a case file and a plan of action. So happy Clusterbusters exists. Thanks again.
  11. Hi everyone, just recently moved to Toronto, and got hit with an episodic cluster a few weeks ago. I've tried contacting a variety of neurologists including the ones recommended on the list here, but due to the Pandemic times are in excess of three months! Does anyone have any Toronto/Ontario advice for doctors or coping techniques/tips/ advice regarding Psilocybin? I know there is an official clinic here that offers Ketamine therapy only for PTSD.
