    POSSIBLE FIX

    I do however totally understand wanting the pain to stop and taking drastic measures! No judgment.

    POSSIBLE FIX

    Medically coke IS bad it increases the hearts need for oxygen and decreases supply! You do the math.

    POSSIBLE FIX

    That’s interesting funtimes, didn’t picture the cigars either. E3r that’s one hell of a way to attack them. I’m scared of coke so I don’t touch the stuff. I’m chronic, long story short I was on another blocking med that takes a long time to get out of your system but I did achieve a 2 month break with mm when I was in monthly and not quarterly injections.

    POSSIBLE FIX

    What little freedoms in life I’m left with after the CHs I enjoy. I happen to eat a diversified diet. I smoke, and use medical marajauana is that a drug? I use mushrooms and LSD to treat my clusters do they count as drugs?

    POSSIBLE FIX

    I’m on 800mg and I wish it did something. I’ll be increasing soon too.

    POSSIBLE FIX

    Verapamil is first line rx therapy many people have tried it by the time they get here.

    Gamacore

    I found a person with ECH who has an old device that has gotten relief with it. The give away is over.

    strange changes to my clusters

    Those are abortive methods. Busting refers to using psychedelics to prevent or stop a cycle of episodic CH or to stop and prevent chronic CH.

    strange changes to my clusters

    Mark Verapamil did nothing at what dose did you give up. It quite often takes 800-1000mg a day to see results. Lithium is a second or third line therapy. Drop Boatman a note he recently tried lithium. The thing is you can’t bust when you’re on lithium so you may see less people that use it here for that reason alone.

    CH, Marijuana and Me

    I’m so sorry this country is so ass backwards where marajuana is not legal. I’m even more sorry for the pain and suffering of CHs. Here are your options the way I see it. Since you’re not fully in cycle busting could prove to be successful, RC seeds probably the easiest option there. No insurance, try welding O2? Many people do it and have great success. No triptans no problem. It’s a double edged sword any way. Lastly you could try the D3 regimen. Many people have had success with it in decreasing severity and frequency. Hope this helps Brisn

    Gamacore

    Still don’t have any interest, if you’re curious and have CH or migraines it’s your’s.
  12. Freud

    Gamacore

    I’m not getting any interest so if you’d like this gammacore to be your’s and you’re episodic. Drop me a line please.

    Cbd oil

    This may be spam I see nothing but seeds for sale.

    New to forum/ not the Demon

    Look at the files on busting. Are you episodic or chronic. The imatrex inj can make the clusters worse. It’s a double edge sword. Oxygen is a godsend. Works faster then the trex.

    Cluster headaches and crying

    Coughing and bending over do it for me. The kind of crying I do when I have a CH is not the balling type where it raises intracranial pressure but rather a constant stream of tears.

    Cluster rules

    One of my rules are no two people have the exact same pain, pain is relative and you can’t judge some one else’s pain compared to yours. All you can do is empathize and offer help when possible. Great thread MG!

    Is ch linked to dental work?

    CHF is on the money. I haven’t had a cavity filled since having clusters but I always ask for without epi bc it triggers migraines for me.
  18. Freud

    Is ch linked to dental work?

    The only “link” between dental work and CH is that people undergo unnecessary dental and sinus procedures thinking it’s the cause of their pain. These tend to be people with undiagnosed CH. don’t be scared there is no link between the 2. Getting and abscess and subsequent endocarditis from not treating it is your biggest risk.
  19. Freud

    Connected maladies and connected “cures”?

    My mild depression has gone away since busting with mm.

    Oxygen concentrators?

    I have not tried it yet. I have tried the hyperventilating trick though with mixed success. I’m going to do higher flows and see what happens. Thankfully I never run out of O2. I have 3 m tanks and when I get down to two I call for refills. They come same day or next day. I am super lucky in that respect.

    Oxygen concentrators?

    Thank you to everyone who replied to my question. I had to go with the affordable option this time around. Going to see if 25LPM helps better for the stubborn headaches that 15 doesn’t work for. I’ve been putting my extra cash towards mm growing. Now I’m isolating genetics and using agar dishes. Good genetics makes a huge difference.

    Portland Oregon sufferers?

    Sorry Monica, I’m on the east coast but I love PDX. My name is Brian I’ve only had clusters for a year and a half which is nothing in comparison. I have chronic CH and don’t get brakes. Hopefully you’re episodic and this cycle will come to an end. What do you do as far as treatment goes, I imagine you’ve tried everything under the sun. I have had mixed success using mushrooms and LSD. I only have mixed results bc I was on a blocking med I couldn’t get off of. I’m currently detoxing that med and plan to bust. I use oxygen to get by and zembrace when it’s a full blown 10/10 kip scale. There are plenty of people here that have been suffering for 10-20 yrs like yourself. Hopefully some of them will chime in. Have you tried the D3 regiment. A member Batch is the go to guy on it. Many have had great results even remission. Hope my sharing helps. Brian

    Oxygen concentrators?

    Thanks funtimes I was having trouble finding the 25LPM myself.

    Oxygen concentrators?

    Could some one provide the amazon link for 25LPM regulator. For an M tank.
  25. Freud

    Oxygen concentrators?

    As a rule of thumb if the O2 works to clear it, stay on for at least 5-10 min after they are gone.
