ok and to add to this ,, Now if Verapimil helps cluster headaches. And Verapimil does this by dialating blood vessels  because it is a calcium channel blocker . which allows for more oxygen absorption.  then maybe it is all tied to oxygen depravation.  excerpt below

Verapamil's mechanism in all cases is to block voltage-dependent calcium channels.

Calcium channels are also present in the smooth muscle that lines blood vessels. By relaxing the tone of this smooth muscle, calcium-channel blockers dilate the blood vessels. This has led to their use in treating high blood pressure and anginal chest pain.

The pain of angina is caused by a deficit in oxygen supply to the heart. Calcium channel blockers like Verapamil will dilate blood vessels, which increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. This controls chest pain, but only when used regularly. It does not stop chest pain once it starts. A more powerful vasodilator such as nitroglycerin may be needed to control pain once it starts.

Verapamil is also used intra-arterially to treat cerebral vasospasm.[12] Verapamil has been used to treat cluster headaches,[13] but it can also cause headaches as a side effect.

I realize this thread is just a place to hold my own comments .. thanks for letting me store info here ya'll ... lol

hmm .. nexium is over the counter now ,, (expensive though) it took me about 2 months of taking it religiously before my reflux was under control .. even now sometimes I have to grab a quick glass of milk.

I too deal with chronic acid reflux, started in my early teens. Nexium seems to be the only thing that works. Prilosec and prevacid just made it more bearable. I just nexium wasn't so bloody expensive!
