  1. The crazy thing about CH is it can only be diagnosed and treated from the patients words.
  2. My left eye which is my cluster side has been getting worse than the other eye for years. I need a new prescription right now ever since last years 6 month cycle.
  3. Hey, Sorry you are hurting. Try a super hot soak or shower but I like the soaks. They can abort the attack just like oxygen can and quickly. It does not work for everybody but it works for me! GL Warrior.
  4. I pray that my daughter will not have them. She is two years away from when mine started at age 27
  5. Burning cooking oil used to trigger me instantly but the strange thing is that it stopped being a trigger a couple years ago.
  6. I get bad neck issues, knots in shoulders as well every cycle. My range of motion is very limited and sometimes tension headaches. My cycle is due soon as well.
  7. My bad, missed this. I may have to hit you up once I'm ready.
  8. You can always go gonzo and do the welding oxygen. The route I am about to take...
  9. Not too bad at all. My worst is about 7 hits a day but there are people that have 14 or more.
  10. Nutcluster! I gotta have a beer with this guy! GL with your cycle, may it end soon.
  11. After 23 years of CH the only thing I know at this point is that it's over if I can make it to the third day PF. Never had more than about 48 hours between hits.
  12. It's so different for each person but for me it ramps up before it tapers down. You may be at the beginning of stage two of three etc.
  13. They switch all over the place time wise. Usually it's a couple weeks of right on time three times a day starting at 9pm then they go to every time you fall asleep all night then switch to random day hits. Early on in my cluster career they were like clockwork for the most part but it just keeps changing. Oh, and I have never used pharma for CH but I was trying to bust so many that was a factor.
  14. My cluster cycles vary all over the place with themes. couple weeks this, couple weeks that etc.
  15. It is growing. I hope more states join soon. "A Republican Missouri lawmaker introduced a bill this month to give residents with serious illnesses legal access to a range of psychedelic drugs like psilocybin, ibogaine and LSD through an expanded version of the state’s existing right-to-try law." https://www.marijuanamoment.net/michigan-activists-file-psychedelics-legalization-ballot-initiative-for-2022/?fbclid=IwAR1xTXdfXIPc3v4oPyhxEpDsSJ1RwsDZYI45snUGLlwyRnFWumIJmJTaXhU
  16. It gets harder every year to succeed with a claim. About 20 years ago it was cake. My wife was denied after a three year effort and she has all kinds of issues and has been hospitalized many times.
  17. Wow, I did not know this was a thing. Sorry mate.
  18. I know we are talking about visual input being a trigger but I do believe that the EMF from phones can be a possible trigger as well. Not sure if you are running straight 5g or wifi on the thing but cellular service can affect our nervous system. I am very sensitive to it and I get a numb face and hands when I'm on a long phone call. I hate it and feel that it has a negative effect to us CH folks.
  19. I used to do the hot showers when in massive pain and it helped. I'm not sure if I knew how to abort CH back then. I think the hot soaks work due to a big change in blood pressure or blood flow so the shower would probably work but maybe a little bit less effective. I have still not done oxy for aborts so this was my replacement. Def. getting a tank for the next cycle which seems to be coming soon because I'm getting muscle lock and tension lately.
  20. Hot soaks also work for me. Every cluster head should at least try it. Works the same way, you have to do it ASAP or it won't work. I must have aborted 100 hits that way the last cycle.
  21. Remissions are pretty normal for us episodics. I recently skipped two years and then it came back strong and lasted nearly six months. There is really no baseline, CH can vary widely from person to person or year to year. Cycles will vary as well, you can start out slow then they pick up and you are getting hit seven times a day for an hour plus per hit. Mine usually start slow then ramp up and then go down during the whole cycle. Try to keep tabs on it all with a journal so you can get a better understanding of how it all plays out. GL warrior!
  22. I drank a beer and flew once.... Let's just say it was horror at 50,000 feet. These days I probably would have been arrested by an air marshal :p
  23. Brown bottle is ready to make some sheets
