  1. It is probably a prescription item that you would get at a compounding pharmacy. I have had SPG nerve blocks done w viscous lidocaine gel dropped down a long q tip in my nose. The doc asked me if I wanted to do it myself at home. But I wasn’t interested in putting this long q tip way back in my sinuses. If it had worked better I would have said yes...


  2. You got my night time hits the last 2 days!  Sorry buddy wish I could take them back!  Batch has been communicating with me fairly often so in my reply today I told him about what’s been going on w you. May be he has something to add. I have gotten a better day or two a few days after a dose but I’m hoping this is related to my D and not the L i took on wed. I’m holding off on busting now so I can see what the D is doing... feel better buddy. I hope that damn hip heals fast so you can at least get back to a cluster shuffle ASAP. 

     

    Wishing you well and PF days ahead.

  3. Just make sure you flex your leg muscles while you sit. This keeps the venous blood moving and helps prevent DVTs and thus PEs.  Stay on the aspirin for sure. I’m also fairly certain you’re getting up and moving around. This is paramount to preventing DVT/PE.  You mentioned you thought you found your D sweet spot, what was it? I hope you can get yourself to that sweet spot real soon. God knows you deserve a break from the CCH at s minimum  to just rehab and recover. 

    Pain free wishes! And a speedy rehab/ recovery!

     


  4. Hmm, that happened to me once, but then it allowed me to message him. He will see this post where i tagged his name. He pretty much looks at every vit D post as well. Give him a little time, he’s kind of off grid with limited internet access atm.

    The Law Isn't Ready For Psychedelic Medicine

    from the ready-or-not-here-it-comes dept.

    Matt Lamkin reports via Scientific American: In March, the Food and Drug Administration approved esketamine, a drug that produces psychedelic effects, to treat depression -- the first psychedelic ever to clear that bar. Meanwhile the FDA has granted "breakthrough therapy" status -- a designation that enables fast-tracked research -- to study MDMA (also called "ecstasy") as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and psilocybin as a treatment for major depression. While these and other psychedelic drugs show promise as treatments for specific illnesses, FDA approval means doctors could also prescribe them for other, "off-label" purposes -- including enhancing the quality of life of people who do not suffer from any disorder. Hence if MDMA gains approval as a treatment for PTSD, psychiatrists could prescribe the drug for very different purposes.

    Yet while the FDA generally does not regulate physicians' prescribing practices, a federal law called the Controlled Substances Act bars them from writing prescriptions without a "legitimate medical purpose." Although this prohibition aims to prevent doctors from acting as drug traffickers, the law does not explain which purposes qualify as "legitimate," nor how to distinguish valid prescriptions from those that merely enable patients' illicit drug abuse. Would prescribing a psychedelic drug simply to promote empathy or increase "life satisfaction" fall within the scope of legitimate medicine -- or would these practices render the physician a drug dealer? To many the answer may seem obvious: to qualify as a "medical" use, a drug must be prescribed to treat an illness. But in fact, medical practice has always included interventions aimed at promoting the well-being of healthy individuals. "At a time when 'lifestyle drugs' are marketed as consumer products, it is increasingly difficult to draw a bright line that distinguishes legitimate medical practices from their illicit cousins," adds Lamkin. "If prescribing mind-altering drugs to help healthy people achieve desirable mental states falls within the bounds of legitimate medicine, what is left of the concept of recreational use?".


  6. It’s the same drug but oral sumatriptan rarely works for CH. it take too long to absorb, plus it’s not as bioavailable as the injection. 99% of CH patients get no relief from oral but get relief in 5-10min with the injection. I do agree with John it’s unlikely that one dose here or there of sumatriptan would cause worsening CH. it’s more of a problem with frequent use...

    I don't believe I would try this drug based on a reduction of 3.5 attacks/week. Good grief, it is amazing that they would even consider this successful! With 4 hits/day, I would gain by having only 3 hits for 3 out of seven nights. Not worth spending the money in my book. I suspect that someone with only one hit every other day would call it helpful. Unfortunately, many if not most do not fall into this category.

    Did they return to normal frequency at week 4? What happened? 

    Thanks CHF. Good to know what is going on out there. MM still wins. 

    From what brief exchange I had w BHD, it has a wide range of “help” for different patients. He’s had patients go from chronic to episodic, others that just get a reduction, some remission and yet others no relief. He thinks it’s worth trying for some one that is uncontrolled like me. However we both agreed to wait until I was fully detoxed from the invega and can say for sure if psychedelics will work for me. It’s my last option...

  8. I don’t think CBD is an alternative to thc.  They have totally different effects on the body. CBD is not psychoactive, thc is...  they have different uses...  they both have a great place in health and medicine. CBD has become a fad, they put it in everything from human edibles, soaps, even dog foods like you said. It’s said to have a calming effect on people at lower doses.  Helps raise the seizure threshold... modulate pain...its very safe. 


  9. So I came across some one that makes DMT cartridges to vape... that uses DMSO as a carrier fluid, he also claims it’s great for you (DMSO)  and sent me this link https://hebrewofyhwh.wordpress.com/chapter-9-health-and-healing-issues-for-the-man-of-yhwh/dmso-the-persecuted-drug-full-copy-of-the-book/

    i have only read a fraction of it and will pick it up again when thisbkip 9 breaks.  When you look it up on the web, webMD and RXlist (not my favorite sites) say it has been used to treat headaches.  Nothing comes up when I search the site for DMSO... any thoughts? @BostonHeadacheDoc Ever heard of  or used DMSO to treat any kind of headache.  As a carrier for DMT it’s probably ok, however there is a small risk of a respiratory reaction. I would only use it to abort a kip 10 while in a busting schedule after oxygen has failed a few attempts (some times if I try O2 a second or third time I abort), when I couldn’t use a trex...
