  1. That is it. I'm outta here.
  2. Good work @igdc! Sounds 'scammy' (new word) to me. @Into Light I'd avoid it.

    Severe headache

    Based on the only 2 reccomendations of Gabapenten & Occipital Nerve Block from that neurologist I'd not see that one again.

    Thanks for the kind offer, it was a challenge, not begging. Besides, we don't have Meals on Wheels. I used to container garden.

    3 minute walk to the beach & orders oysters. Appetizer & as the main course. That is either over kill or someone flashing their spending capacity. If I was 3 minutes from the beach that'd put me near gathering my own for nothing.

    @Batch your diet reccomendations are good. Here is my challenge for anyone to use them. Limit spending to .49 (forty-nine cents) a day SNAP benefits, living in a rural area food desert with no public transportation & no internet service. Garden would be nice but your wheelchair doesn't work on anything but paved surfaces. I look forward to reading how it is done.

    Found the link, tons of good info on oxygen & lots of goodies that are helpful. https://clusterbusters.org/forums/topic/6213-basic-non-busting-information/

    Severe headache

    There are two options: 1. Medical oxygen, by prescription. Don't be surprised, some docs don't know how to write the rx. Usually written Oxygen 15-20 lpm with nonrebreather mask for cluster headaches. Most get E sized tanks (a cart usuful when away), a large M size tabk for home, the mask (some use the cluster o2 mask) & the regulators you need. It is usually delivered. Insurance may not cover it, some pay out of pocket. 2. Welders oxygen, I'd guess 70% here use it, the tanks are filled from the same large supply tanks as Medical oxygen. No rx needed (you can't tell suppliers it will be used to inhale, we have a couple of routines you can use if asked), you'd need to get a regulator, mask etc. Some lease tanks, some buy tanks. You have to take these tanks for refills. Links for details will be shared shortly (sorry I'm not great with links). Oxygen has no side-effects & has saved many cluster head lives. Mine is one.

    Graci, do you have Oxygen? It is the 1st line abortive for cluster headaches!

    Is your pain on the same side that you hold a phone?

    It is human nature to seek something to blame our CH on. If that something is 'touchable' (e.g. a cell phone) it seems to comfort a bit more.

    She doesn't have the flu she's pregnant! Congrats on both!

    Balanced nutrition, 7-9 hours of sleep/night & regular exercise boost the immune system without throwing pills in the mix. Whether they be pharma or your basic unregulated supplements. Common sense.

    Minidoc about Horton's and oxygen coming up on CHAD 2020

    Thanks to the emergency personnel in Finland for help with oxygen! I'm not in Finland but know the value of assistance.
