  1. I took phenibut (GABA analogue) a few times to see if any positive impact on sleep. It induced these symptoms severely to the point that I immediately discontinued use. I would jerk awake many times while falling asleep certain that my breathing stopped. Sometimes a loud sound was present and sometimes not as I remember. Nothing like jerking awake several times with the feeling of not breathing to help a good nights sleep. It happens occasionally to me in any event but with phenibut it was magnified enormously.
  2. Just thinking about drinking during a cycle makes me lay on the floor in a fetal position and whimper. I guess that has its positives since if it was prophylactic then I would surely drink unhealthy amounts.
  3. Ah yes I know the feeling well. My brain really works at a very high level for a period afterwards also. Memory is excellent and thought is clear and focused. I also verbalize more just after-I survived again.
  4. Fortunately I am an engineer so was able to get through cluster periods with no long term impact.
  5. Babies don’t require anesthetics for this. Just tell them you want a stick to bite down on and suck it up.
  6. I enjoyed your poem MG (in a literary sense )
  7. Actually my first diagnosis in my teens was from an ophthalmologist and it was transient glaucoma episodes in my right eye. He prescribed diamox the typical glaucoma medication. So in the middle of a horrific cluster headache I am throwing down diamox like m&m’s with absolutely no impact. Huge overdoses of diamox. I was told later that I could have collapsed structures in my eyes. The ophthalmologist finally referred me to a med college ophthalmology department and a resident did my intake. I start going through my symptoms and he asks a few questions and his questions are extremely
  8. Batch Thank you for this information. I have a question about typical dosages in children. We have fraternal twin girls that are now six years of age. What would be a typical D3 dosage in their case? My twins are quite active-say upper 5% and one story from my recent cluster- We have a Halloween cheerleader costume that included a megaphone. During one of my early headaches in this cluster I was sitting and trying to focus on hyperventilating (another strategy I found on this site following on from oxygen inhalation that I do not have access to) and trying to keep muscle
  9. Thanks spiny and I hope all is well with you right now also.
  10. I obtained Batch’s recommended D3 while in the US. On my return flight-no attack. On my new sleep schedule back where I live-no attack. The only supplement lacking for compliance with the D3 protocol is Boron (I assume this is to increase free testosterone ?) and will add that shortly. So knock on wood (not sure if this has been established as medically effective :) ) life is good again.
  11. Using the commonly cited lifetime statistics of 1/1000 for clusters and 1/100 Lyme then maybe 3,000 Cluster sufferers with Lyme in US . Some small portion of that would have both active Lyme and Cluster symptoms so not common at all.
  12. This is the story of the boy who cried NO wolf too often. Cluster episode again not over. I was crushed on a flight yesterday and remember that in the past when in cycle flights were brutal. Based on the oxygen info here I guess because of the lower partial pressure of oxygen during flights. Then all night last night headaches i guess due to sleep schedule change (9 time zones). This morning even though last headache a couple hours ago residual swelling of eye lid. An ugly detail. I slept so soundly after my attack during the flight that I drooled to the point that my enture upper right
  13. Now I think safe to declare this cluster over. I found 600 IU D3 capsules locally and so going through those quickly. I will be in the US next week and ordered the specific D3’s that Batch recommended and plenty of those to last a few months. Pain is intended to send a message from the body to the mind. Because of clusters I break pain into two categories. 1) proper intended messages 2) inappropriate messages or messages that are hopelessly muddled. Naturally my mind tries to convert these bad messages into useful intelligence. As a result I have spent much time during my life thinking a
  14. What a terrible mistake. I just had one day off and my cluster then kept going strong. I tempted the fates and lost.
