    Computer help....

    I used to build websites. Had to pretty much retire due to the eye pain and triggers. Breaks def. help.
  2. I did not want to start a whole new thread so I'll mention here since it was funky. The most painful CH I ever has was Summer 2017 and during that moment I heard dancing queen playing in my head perfectly clear like I was playing it. The funny thing is that I heard all the lyrics play and I don't know them. Brain was accessing old memories or something.

    'Symptoms' Only - No Pain?

    I never say beast or demon but years ago before I knew anything about them I would say it's what burning in hell must be like. Good luck Claudia!

    Doctor vs Patient

    Busting is stopping a cluster cycle and being pain free! We do that here! I may seem new but I'm a long time lurker.

    Doctor vs Patient

    Doctors can suck sometimes. I'm actually self diagnosed. I went through the first 8 years thinking I had either migraines or something wrong with my teeth since I started having CH around the time my wisdom teeth came in. Doctors were of little help. I'm on year 21 now so there is no way it's a tumor or anything like that or I would not be around to post this. Once the internet had enough CH info out there about 12 years ago I finally figured it out because I have the exact symptoms as any of us here.
  6. Funny you say that moxie because I always read about how CH makes it so you cannot sit still but I like to press my head into the bed or floor and sit very still in the dark and I also used the term hide from the pain by trying to get into portions of my head that kinda hide from it. Yeah, the self inflicted pain stuff, hitting, stabbing etc. is pretty normal IMO. We gotta do what we gotta do!
  7. Heh, i forgot the orajel. I gotta try the push ups. I had to quit the monsters, love them but my health cant handle them very well anymore. I know what u mean chels

    Pre Episode symptoms: do you have them?

    I get worried and scared of the impending doom but not too depressed. I know they are coming when my muscles start to knot up which is usually a sign that the cycle is coming within 2-8 weeks.

    strange changes to my clusters

    Standard drug tests do not look for mushrooms. I never heard of anybody failing a drug test over mushrooms. They saved my life last year.
  10. Hey guys, After 20+ years of fun times with CH I have developed some pain mgmt tricks that help me cope with the immense pain. Thought I would share. Burning hot showers to the neck. Tapping or hitting nerves in the neck. Contorting neck to the left (Left side pain) and laying on my face with tons of weight pressing into the bed or hardwood floors because they are nice and cool. Yawning. you can get good at triggering yawns if you try, they stretch neck muscles nicely. Running around the house cursing like a sailor and crying like a baby. (Lol) How about you guys?

    CH, Marijuana and Me

    I had the same revelation. I only suffer once a year for 3-12 weeks because I smoke weed all year. However, smoking weed during the cycle sucks as you stated, makes it worse. Last year I stopped the cycle with mushrooms, I hope to do it again this year.

    Cluster rules

    I used to think that but after about 21 years of them and im nearing 50 i think they can. I now go onto shock and sweat bullets then i get a wet freeze that gives me a cold seizure. So although they cant kill you all by themselves, they can trigger other things and stress the heck out of any other weakness you may have.
  13. Hey guys, 20+ year sufferer here, the last few years i have been sweating super hard like shock sweat which sucks because now i have to deal with being wet and freezing while i have a ch Just trying to gear up for the next cycle, i may have them busted though!

    Eye dominance & cluster headaches?

    I'm left handed. I get clusters on the left side only. It has always hurt real bad with the eye feeling like it's going to pop out. I have noticed that my left eye prescription is changing faster than the right. I have suffered from clusters for 21 years and I'm 47.
