    Australians beware

    People who can't work are forced to chose between healthcare & food, the nanny keeps the job.

    Heard this, it isn't verbatim. Politicians should stop practicing medicine without a license. They have no right to choose what we do with our bodies.

    Chronic Cluster Patient Pain Free for 11 days

    Consider the level of physical activity. In my former triathlon life I ate healthy. I have had rhabdomyolysis, not related to over exertion. The last thing anyone would want is to have their muscles break down to the point you require dialysis to save your kidneys. Just sayin... Not good, not bad... IMHO whether it be fashion or diet a fad is just that, a fad. To clarify I have not labeled what the OP is actually eating as a fad. I hope this thread will be updated.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGY6hLrQOLA This is the same link in the original post here & the same link for keto diet posted on the general board under the topic "Cure". If you search keto or ketogenic diet tons of info comes up. Hope this helps!

    Well bust my britches devonrex, I thought you had a Devon Rex... On topic... Eating healthy is a lifestyle, not a diet & we won't risk our health. That Hurts My Head, I 2nd your group hug & raise you one (edited to correct myself it is a group hug) I'll raise you 200. Absolutely no accusations here. Accepting suggestions on which topic in which board to reply to... The topic titles are so similar I get confused.

    I second that!

    Perhaps it would help to lighten the load of some topics that have been pinned. For example, a topic that has 2,3,4 or so pages about Viagra etc. is important information but the comments can sometimes obscure the point of a post. Just a thought...

    CH vs Migraine headache --from someone who has both.

    Thanks Batch, I'm not currently able to download. I didn't see mention of TACs, Hemicrania etc. The post was a bit much for me to absorb. Perhaps because I am having chronic cluster headaches more often...

    Doing a Google search for diagnosis could cost a life! Tumors etc can cause headaches. Please have scans done. Proper diagnosis is crucial to get appropriate treatment options. No head pain or headache should ever be taken lightly.

    CH vs Migraine headache --from someone who has both.

    There it is, hope this helps. If you go to the cluster buster files section you will see a post titled 'A bunch of basic non-busting info'. There you will find what you need to know about docs, tests, proper diagnosis, treatments etc. As I noted above self diagnosis is risky business. Much can go wrong in our brains that cause head pain/headaches & no symptoms should be taken lightly. There are different Hemicranias, for info on them, the types of migraines & types of cluster headaches etc. You can do a web search (e.g. Google). Best wishes on your reading searches etc. If you have questions afterwards ask away. I apologize for it taking so long to get back to you, our lives are sometimes about making it through each day, one foot in front of the other.

    Dr. Todd Rozen

    Hi all, warnings this is also known as Zyrem. To get Rx your MD is required to participate in a program, you are required to participate in a program, this medication is only available through the Central Pharmacy. It has some nasty side effects. It is primarily used to treat narcolepsy, a sleep disorder.

    Agree xBoss, taking the time to search is vital in getting info & saves time. New members may not know where to post & if they search they may not need to.

    Hi Bennett, this is an old tread you can use the search bar to search hemicrania continua (spelling anyone?) self diagnosis is risky business.
  22. Batch, I spend at least 3 hours a day in the sun everyday. Arms, legs, neck, face, head, back, chest. Each opportunity for full exposure is taken. If I am fortunate to attend I'll bring my labs with me & MEET you in the bar!
  23. Southern climate, I get my D from the sun.

    CH related to tumor

    An accurate diagnosis usually starts with scans to rule out tumors, brain bleeds etc. and ends with a headache specialist. Anyone having a severe headache for the 1st time should go straight to a hospital. A hospital visit & scans are better than risking your life.

    Dreams and clusters

    Most people enter the REM stage of sleep about every 90 minutes. If you have a sleep disorder, it usually shows up in the sleep studies during the REM stage. There are two sleep studies. Nighttime, polysomnography. Most folks only have this study to begin to diagnose. The necessity of the second study is based on the results of the first. The second study is the Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT). It is used in more complex cases... such as mine...
