  1. Im just trying to find out if other people are beginning a cycle at this time. i have gotten a slight headache for about 3 days in a row and thats usually how my cycle starts and gets worse from there. I dont always get 2 cycles a year and this time the pain has switched to my right eye. using oxygen did help but i just want to know if others are beginning a fall cycle as well or if these are some other headache or migraines...

    anyone else entering fall cycle?

    update ~ Friday 11-22. ~ morning was rough woke up with mounting pain and had a hard time mentally keeping it together. luckily I was able to avoid a serious attack by downing some coffee, a red bull and using oxygen on my way to work. it actually turned out to be a good day, I did feel one starting later that night but was able to abort it again with a big cup of coffee. Saturday 11-23 ~ woke up this morning with another oncoming cluster. already had my coffee and I'm currently using oxygen. going to try forced inhale to capacity and exhale to limit. saw this mentioned by an experienced member and figured id give it a try. also most likely going to try a bust today.. crisis averted. happy Saturday hope everyone is well

    they are back.. they took a break for about 2 weeks. I thought they were gone, but last night I got my ass handed to me and the oxygen had almost no effect! NOOO!!! >;( they've been ramping up the past 4 or 5 days. usually one in the late morning one around midnight. last night was horrible! the oxygen usually always helps but I went through 2 1/2 tanks last night. was up all night until maybe about 3am finally fell asleep on the edge of my bed with the mask on. I feel like I haven't had a good nights rest in over a week. I got a break for about 2 weeks or so after my third MM dose. I wasn't able to take them exactly as recommended.. I did them 6 and 7 days apart I believe. I am actually pleasantly surprised. after I tried using MM to bust my last cycle with no sustained benefits I got somewhat discouraged. Maybe its time to try busting again?

    this is interesting. I had always thought I had some sort of sinus problem when I was getting headaches regularly in the past. before I realized clusters were even a real thing. i have tried just about every kind of medication you can think of to no avail. even bought one of those little machine dingys that flush your sinus' feels great. doesn't help. i will definitely look into this
