Hi there,

I'm also currently in a bad cycle. I had covid twice and shortly after the second infection, i developed a full scale cluster of up to 8 Attacks/day at maximum pain level.

By now the quality of the attacks got much better due to the use of Cannabis, but attacks come still in a high frequency...

Curious what form of cannabis you are using and how often?

Wondering if the new booster would have a negative or positive effect. I remember hearing that the booster and vaccine helped those experiencing long Covid. My cycle usually lasts about a month and I’m on week 4. Last night was brutal but this cycle has not been nearly as severe in terms of pain but I seem to get many more attacks than normal. Hoping I’m nearing the finish line. Hope you are too. 

Sorry to hear about the rough night. Fingers crossed that tonight goes better for you! As they say..."this too shall pass." It may not feel that way, but, it always does eventually.

Hey Sparklegirl,

I remember getting hit 8 times/day.  It was bad.

See your PCP for assays of your serum 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH (Parathyroid Hormone).  It's a safe bet your serum 25(OH)D3 concentration is low < 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L).  If I'm correct, starting the anti-inflammatory regimen CH and MH preventative treatment protocol is prudent and the best way to get your CH under control.  The following photo illustrates the supplements by brand and doses I take and suggest to other CHers.


It helps to start this protocol by loading vitamin D3 to elevate serum 25(OH)D3 more rapidly.  The loading dose I've used is two of the 50,000 IU Bio-Tech D3-50 capsules/day plus 0.5 mL/day of the Nutrasal Micro D3 nano emulsion taken sublingual (under the tongue for two minutes without swallowing).  This brings the loading dose to 140,000 IU/day and It's taken for five (5) days for a total of 700,000 IU of vitamin 'D3 then drop back to an initial maintenance dose of 100,000 IU/week of the Bio-Tech D3-50.  It's also helpful to double the magnesium dose by taking 400 mg with breakfast and 400 mg with the evening meal.  This provides 12 hours and 12 feet GI tract separation between doses and that helps avoid osmotic diarrhea.  See your PCP in 30 days for another round of assays for serum 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH.  Your 25(OH)D3 serum concentration should be up around 80 to 100 ng/mL (200 to 250 nmol/L).

If the CH beast is still jumping ugly after completing the above loading schedule, I would start the antihistamine Full Monty. This is a clutch of supplements with antihistamine properties that includes 2 to 3 grams/day Turmeric (Curcumin), Quercetin, Resveratrol, Omega-3 (EPA and DHA) fish oil.  It also includes 8 grams/day viramin C, 5 mg/day Melatonin (taken at bedtime), 250 mcg Selenium and 1000 mg/day NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine).  Stay at this dose for 5 days then drop the dose of the first four supplements to one gram/day.

Take care and please keep us posted.

V/R, Batch
