  1. Hi! I'm 24, and I was diagnosed with CH in 2018. I just went through a 4-year remission but just got caught Covid for the first time (can't believe I made it so long!) which triggered a cycle, sigh. I want to try the D3 regimen - I live in Minnesota and am probably way deficient (I just requested a lab test). My question is, is there anything I should do differently with the regimen as a young woman? I'm 5'2" and 115 pounds and I don't want to overload my system. The D3 I can probably handle, it's more the doses of the cofactors that I'm not so sure about. Any women out there have experience with or modifications to Batch's regimen? Any insight would be appreciated, thanks!!
  2. Hi, I started Vitamin D regime 10 days back. My baseline Vit D level was 19. I did 140,000 IU ( Two 50K capsules + Micro D3 0.5cc ) for 7 days and got my testing done again. My numbers after loading dose are: Vitamin D : 86 ng/ml Calcium: 11.6 mg/dl So Vitamin D has definitely moved in right direction, however calcium seems higher ( don't have baseline for that ). My headaches have not improved yet and based on my reading it seems I may need to go to may be 100+ level to see relief. But since calcium level is on high side, what would be a good course of action ? Continue Vitamin D and just stop extra calcium supplement ? Or discontinue Vit D till Calcium level falls ? Any opinion/advice be great as I really was hoping this to work for me thnx

  4. I decided to create this thread specifically for new CH members who just got diagnosed and might not want to take any psychedelics for temporary relief and would instead opt for a more permanent solution. I started the D3 regimen as advised by senior members, here is a link to the regimen https://clusterbusters.org/forums/topic/1308-d3-regimen/. On my fifth day of the pills and I've been CH free. So far so good, I'll update this thread from time to time in case anyone might find this useful. Thanks to CH father, Batch and everyone else that helped me find this regimen.
  5. Hey Everyone, I'm pretty new to the community - started getting clusters last year, early September. And as all of you, thought they were sinus-related or something else so I had an MRI and CT scan, and everything came back normal. Last year my cycle started and ended earlier. This year it came back around September 22nd. So I started off by seeing my PC doctor. I happened to get my 25 (OH) D tested and it was 23.6 ng/ml. After that I went to see a few neurologists, some thought it was a migraine but most thought it was cluster headaches due to the cyclical nature of the headaches, the location of the pain, and the fact that it was unilateral 95% of the time. I did further research and started reading about the side-effects of CGRPS, Verapamil and other preventative measures and realized those were not for me. I was also placed on a 5 day steroid course which reduced the severity of the attacks and the frequency, but nonetheless they are still happening. My research further lead me to try the D3 loading regimen, with the approval of a few doctors of course. And this is what I have done so far: 10/8/19 - 10/14/19: I did 10k IUs of the D3 along with all the cofactors 10/15/19: I did 20k IUs of the D3 along with all the cofactors 10/16/19: 50k IUs along with all the cofactors 10/17/19: 20k IUs along with all the cofactors I know that this isn't exactly how the loading schedule should be done, but I was scared of taking everything at once so fast. Lately I have been doing the 20k IUs/day and I have been feeling a bit nauseated and dehydrated, so my questions are: How can I reduce this nauseating and dehydrated feeling? Why are the cofactors all necessary even during maintenance periods? Has anyone tried going off of them to any success? Are they purely for absorption? If someone could get Batch involved, he has been a lifesaver thus far and his input would be invaluable. Vitamins taken are: Kirkland Multimitamin, Pure D3 (5000 IU), Magnesium Calcium & Zinc from Walgreen, and a fish oil supplement from Trader Joes Best, Ilya
  6. My first attempt at D3 without verapamil (tried D3 about 2/3 the way thru my last cycle so don't know if it really helped). Does anyone have any experience with poor D3 absorption. I tested 39 ng/ml, then 44.0 9 days later after taking about 400K IU's. Expected to be up near 80. I've been taking all the co factors and dosing with my largest meal of the day. Nothing else going on health wise save the beast!
