  1. I took topamax for 4 days, woke up one morning with right leg cramping in the calf. So I discontinued and the cramp went away.
  2. I think I had the COVID-19 disease. I have been coughing for 46 days. I believe I caught it on a flight back from the UK. I arrived back in the USA on 16 February and started coughing the evening of the 18th of February. I was tested on the 19th of March by the National Guard using a nasal swab. The test came back NEGATIVE. I have had a severe cough now for 46 days. I think I had the virus and had shed by the time I was tested. I have spent most of the last 46 days in bed as the cough lessens when you lie down.
  3. I think dragon is right about a parasitical cause. I will post the results when the lab tests come back. I just pray that is not an unknown virus. Just remember the first airplane flew in 1903. Penicillin did not come about until 1929. Disclaimer: I maybe wrong about the hypothetical causative agent. I am not a doctor of medicine.
  4. I ask because I never had cluster headaches until I was around some barn cats. Particulary a feral cat. These cats are well known for harboring the parasite "toxoplasmo gondii" and this parasite is known for causing headaches. This parasite is also found in soil, cows, sheep,etc. Forutunately most patients infected with T. Gondii are asymptomatic. Links below are to the suspected pathogen and various research efforts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxoplasma_gondii https://www.researchgate.net/publication/263441459_Idiopathic_intracranial_hypertension_may_be_caused_by_reactivation_of_latent_cerebral_toxoplasmosis_Effect_of_various_diseases_and_clinical_states
  5. I am just curious Rainmaker, but were you ever around cats?
  6. A viral infection usually ends up as a bacterial infection. A bacterial infection can result in meningitis. Meningitis can result in death.
  7. Intense ear pain sounds like an infection. You need to see a doctor. I would go to an ER immediately. If left untreated, you could lose hearing in that ear.
  8. I have used Emetrol from Walmart with some success. It is basically a sugar mixture. https://emetrol.com/
  9. It snowed last night. I woke up with the worst CH ever. I tried treating it with Indomethacin.No results from that medication. I tried 50mg sumatriptan and a 6mg injector. No results from that either. I ended up in the ER. Seems the weather changes are an EXTREME trigger.
  10. I had a remission of two months. I overdosed on folinic acid. I took ten capsules of 400 micrograms with 6 micrograms of B 12. I took them at 8PM and woke at 2AM to vomit. It got me two months of no CH's. Folinic acid is one medication of a toxoplasmosis treatment protocol. Folinic acid is the primary ingredient of Leucovorin.

  11. Just get an oximeter. It will tell you if get too much oxygen. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Zacurate-Fingertip-Pulse-Oximeter-Blood-Oxygen-Saturation-Monitor-with-batteries-and-lanyard-included-Navy-Blue/757187983?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227096424698&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=212822171008&wl4=pla-408475254437&wl5=9029047&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=757187983&veh=sem&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvqao4vyf5QIVRr7ACh1bzw70EAQYASABEgLrc_D_BwE
  12. I tested below 3 Igm Ige. Active infection is considered above 7+. My hypothesis is I am simply hypersensitive. I will post results if I am successful or not.
  13. You join the military. Become injured. They will help you.
  14. I have been chronic for over a year. I am now doing a trial of pyrimethamine, since I believe I am simply having arterial inflammation due a protozoan call toxoplasma gondii. Toxoplasma gondii is parasite transmitted mainly household cats. My hypothesis is that some CCH sufferers are having an inflammatory reaction to this parasite. Most humans are asymptomatic. This parasite can infect most mammals including farm animals such as sheep, cows, etc.
  15. I had a ketamine infusion for chronic cluster headache. The experience was quite pleasant. I had no real side effects. About 2 hours after the IV I had a pretty bad CH. I was under the impression a treatment would stop the headaches. The infusion lasted about an hour. Now I am finding out that for a remission to occur the treatment needs to last 4 days. Anybody on this forum receive this treatment?
