tommyd Posted November 20, 2013 Share Posted November 20, 2013 "The Worst Possible Pain?" ...but the best possible treatment. Featuring our own Bob Wold: For Bob Wold, founder of the non-profit cluster headache research and advocacy organization, Clusterbusters, none of the medications he tried worked. Â“All of the different medications that people use for clusters are hand-me-downs, usually from migraine treatments, anti-seizure medications, or blood pressure medicationsÂ…I had pretty much tried all of the different medications that were available, and so I was contemplating having gamma knife surgery. They clamp your head down and shoot radiation into your brain, killing off part of your brain. I had been approved for that surgery at Northwestern.Â” He decided to try one last thing first, something heÂ’d read about online. A couple doses of psilocybin mushrooms, which are classified as a Schedule I drug, broke a cycle he says heÂ’d been stuck in for months, when nothing else could. Â“I canceled the surgery and havenÂ’t looked back since,Â” he says.
