  1. Thanks CHfather! And yes I have checked out the "new users" tab at the top. Just obviously difficult to source that treatment but it's on my list. Spiny's suggestion of caffeine and hot shower followed by cold rinse seemed to provide some relief this morning for my CH which was great.
  2. Thanks so much spiny! There were a couple things I haven't heard about that you mentioned there one of which is caffeine! Interesting! And the vitamin D3 I have just read about in the last couple days for the first time so I will get onto that tomorrow. I cant believe all these years I have looked on Google for treatments and came across things on webmd and similar sites which provided minimal info on effective treatments but somehow never thought to look for forums and seemed to have missed clusterbusters during my research. I am so stoked to have found this site, woohoo!
  3. Hi fellow cluster sufferers! I am 30 and been suffering since I was about 22 although undiagnosed until about 26. Although I was diagnosed then, the doctors that I saw were somewhat uneducated about treatments and I have been unaware of many of the treatments until very recently. I am currently in the midst of a cycle and I have been taking sumatriptan fast release tablets which are working pretty well for me. But I have abused them due to not realising the possibility of rebound headaches and other side effects etc. So now I am avoiding sumatriptan unless I am desperate at work or something. I am in process of getting my hands on some oxygen hopefully this week. But I cannot take another night of being woken up the second I fall asleep with a CH. Does anyone have any suggestions to at home remedies or anything that can help until I get some oxygen? Thank you.
