    Yipee! Enjoy the pain free!

    Severe headache

    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.

    I can't connect cell usage to my CCH but I saw a beer weeks ago & still have nightmares of being triggered.

    ?What? To heck with flattening the curve, protect the 401-Ks & thin the population?!?!?! Keep in mind with the shortages the very people who can save our lives (not a good time for heart attacks etc) will be the largest part of the reduced population. Less PPE, fewer to provide healthcare, less population but by George the financial markets will look good. World gone mad indeed.

    Wouldn't hurt to have it in the U.S. I never thought of calling an ambulance just to use their oxygen or get it noted in my records. I can see how it could make it easier to get oxygen.

    Yipee! Glad you had a better day! Hope other's are doing the same.

    I understand. Met an elderly couple at the end of yet another empty bread aisle. He looked shocked, "No bread, no meat..." she looked at him "What are we going to do?" apparent it was their 1st time out. Oddly there have been no local TV reports to inform folks of food shortages here. Enjoy that beer!! Rant if you need to folks.

    Rod H we love you for it. Nothing could have prepared us but being prepared for something similar. Part of the problem here seems to be the announcement Sunday the public schools were closed. One County over 97% get school lunches, not everyone has access to the internet, nor do they all have computers. Those will suffer the most, not only educationally. If anyone communicates with Major Tom or the crew in Houston please be sure to ask where we can get protein pills. Might as well keep a sense of humour.

    Agree! Wal-Mart isn't reserving the 1st hour for elderly/disabled. I'm no match for a mom with 3 kids instructed on where to go, what to get & where to wait for mom with the buggy to fill. Try again tomorrow, my last MRE for dinner tonight.

    Our grocery stores open only for elderly & disabled for the 1st hour. Hopefully folks will regain or gain some sense of community & neighbor will help neighbor again.
  19. Sorry, eeww might want to get that looked at.

    I'd like to stay home, Wal-Mart 7a, wouldn't have gone inside if I had food, witnessed the bread aisle & fled before seeing bloodshed. So tomorrow high risk me goes out for the 3rd time. Keep in mind I buy 1 month of food in 1 day every month.

    I buy groceries for the month (fixed income). Wal-Mart had no bread, no meats, no canned meats, no cheese, no milk, no eggs, no frozen dinners, no milk, no toilet paper & no paper towels. I called when home. Store is normally open 24/7. Now closes at 9 to restock. I was told to be there when they open at 7a & hopefully they'll have something I can afford. A BIG shout out to those who have the resources to buy ALL of the groceries & leave NONE for the most vulnerable population. I live in a food desert, compounded by panic & greed. I have transportation, those who do not made long trips & came home empty handed too.

    Longest possible period of maximum suffering?

    A 10 for me "Why doesn't it just kill me?" When begging is pointless.

    Permanent cure

    @Manfred you join & post cured, there is no known cure. Folks for the truth about this Dr, surgery & 'cure' simply search the forum.

    Longest possible period of maximum suffering?

    I was chronic, daily attacks always started at Kip-9 escalated to Kip-10 in< 5 mins. Untreated for 2 years.
