  1. Kat, I am so sorry. This pain is so much. I am assuming you did the steroids? What about Emgality? Y soell is over and I do not know whether it was the D3, the steroids, or end of cycle. Hopefully, he can give you something on Weds. fingers crossed for you. Chrissy
  2. One capsule 240 mg extended release at bedtime. Neuro put me to 120 mg for one week then I can quit. No, I have not taken blood pressure, I do not get dizzy just the concrete in my head feeling.
  3. I did not. I will call new neurologist this morning. Thanks.
  4. Thank you! I am about to stop my verapamil I hate it!
  5. OMG, so I remember hating verapamil, but I can't really remember everything I hated. Is it normal for my head to feel almost disconnected from the rest of me...not really sure if that is the way to explain it. It is almost like numb or something. Like I am not all there. I am going to stop it, I feel like my spell is done anyway and I just can't take the side effects. Tonight is my last 10 mg of prednisone and there has been no inkling of cluster in almost two weeks. When I was younger I remember I would start and stop verapamil at will, is there a reason I can't stop taking it? I am
  6. Kat I am so sorry you are having a hard time. Can you tell me about the whole multi vitamin and verapamil thing? I take them all together. Thanks, Chrissy
  7. I think it was just for protection from getting sick.
  8. Batch told me to take Vitamin C with the D3 regimen.
  9. My heart breaks for you enduring this pain. Luckily, you have stumbled upon such a wonderful group of helpful and kind people. My spellls come in like a lion and out like a lion. At both ends I get a couple of days of the clusters hitting me sporadically and short spurts with these weird like electric voltage jabs every so often in my head. It is almost like it is planting itself from outer space or something. Then they are majorly debilitating for about ten weeks, waking me anywhere from 1-6 times in night, I call it a migraine hangover during day, though that is bad terminology. Usuall
  10. Thanks! Hoping with my blood dosorder diagnosis they are gone forever. Apparently polycythemia vera can aggravate CH and the phlebotomy can relieve it according to my oncologist and neurologist. So at this point I am a bit thankful for my head l, it probably saved my life.
  11. Let me ask you this. When you have taken the prednisone in the past did it make you feel completely normal, like the cycle had ended? I don't remember it doing that before when I took it like 10 years ago. This time, it is like it never happened. Totally normal.
  12. Thank you! By the way, I have had Four!!!!! Pain free nights!
  13. Thanks, then I won’t bother with it. You all have helped me so much! 240 mg of verapamil which is what I was previously on.
  14. He said to use it with the oxygen if needed instead of Imitrex.
  15. Today I went to a new neurologist and as I already knew the guy I hated did everything wrong. Thenew guy gave me twelve days of steroids, the correct mg of verapamil, oxygen, and Indocin...anyone used the Indocin? My oxygen should be delivered tomorrow. I had two completely pain free nights and then last night a glimmer of the pain came back. Head feels wonky today. My husband is picking up my prescriptions on his way home from work, so I am counting on the steroids to do the trick.
