Unclebird Posted April 6, 2014 Share Posted April 6, 2014 I am new to clusterbusters site and it is an amazing feeling knowing I'm not alone. I was cluster free for almost three years until a couple weeks ago. Then the beast reared it's ugly head. This cycle has not been bad at all so far, with "only" one attack a day, starting at same time in the afternoon. I take imitrex spray and injections and it works very well for me 80% of the time. It has been so long since my last cycle that all my meds are expired by two years but they seem to work just fine. I don't have my O2 tanks but will be getting them back this week. I do have many questions. I have a CDL class A, and I am subject to random drug testing. I want to know if the MM or RC stuff can be detected on a piss test, which would ultimately cause me to loose my job? This cycle, (as all of them are!) is especially bad timing because I just started a new job, and it is impossible to explain the situation to non-clusterhead bosses about these "little headaches". I swear that just reading the threads on this site helps with the severity and duration of the attacks. Misery loves company for sure! Thanks for any advice or support given. It's weird, but I don't even want the word cluster said around me when I am in remission for fear of returning into a cycle. Does anyone else feel that way? And if so, do you still visit this site when you are out of a cycle? I remember years ago I went to a neuro doc and he got me on the injections, but I didn't have another headache to be able to use them!!!! It broke the cycle by just knowing there was hope of some sort of relief! I am hoping that finding this site, and the new methods and coping mechanisms does the same for me this time!!
