When do you know your cluster cycle is over?

Recommended Posts

Just a curiosity question for episodic cluster sufferers:  when do you breathe a sigh of relief and feel like your cluster cycle is done?

 

For myself, I know I am done with a cycle after four full days no attack or shadow.

...when episodic....6-8 wks on/off (23 yrs)...I knew cycle was over when I got a MASSIVE hit after a tapering off of multiple daily hits....a bell curve

of remarkable consistency. I CRAVED that gut wrenching hit....being willing to bear what I  knew was the "end".....

Best wishes....tis a journey...the way is long and tortuous.... but the light at the end is there.... AND....when you get there...and you will...indescribable

Episodic over 25 years now and the majority of my cycles did not end any way special. 

For me it took a while to grasp it but I know when my cycle ends because it is like a fog has been lifted. Unscientific I know but I just feel “normal” again.

Before busting I was 3 to 5 days a week and I knew that I had a couple days relief comming after a monster hit, one that is all you can handle plus a little bit more.

This is my  3 third cycle and i had CH free periods of 6 years, i have the same experience as Jon019, the last one is a Massive hit and  and after that the headache remains but not as in a attack, i think they call it shadows here, and the skin on my head on the right side is very sensitive during a cycle, when this sensation is gone the cycle has ended.

My last cycle was like that, one massive hit and I was done. I thought I got my massive hit last week but nope, trying to bust now with Psilocybin.
