... and Oxygen, too

I forgot to add to the list:

OXYGEN: didn't seem to work very well. Maybe took the edge off? Doc can confirm or deny this. I think that we concluded that it was pretty useless and it was more of a pain to wrangle with the insurance company about it than the O2 was helpful.

  • I am chronic Clusterhead and just wanted to share with you.

    A fellow CH'er in England devloped an awesome Non-rebreather mask and it is making a world of difference for thos of us who have found O2 to be no longer effective.
    I figured I would share.

  • If I could feel like I got any relief from O2 it may be worth the enormous hassle involved with getting it but we have tried it twice an I can say that the effectiveness of it was disappointing. From what I recall it helped a very small amount on mild to mid range attacks and seemed to have no effect on really bad ones...

    I hope this makes sense but I don't see a point in anything that doesn't stop attacks above level 5-6 which for me so far is nothing.
