I would in fact like to see those clinical trials, but be aware that I am aware of how such things could easily be procured especially in our current climate of poor regulation. I wont necessarily see such documents as "Proof" of anything unless I could independently verify said findings. I see a sleep specialist, a neurologist at a well considered headache management clinic in Dallas as well as a general partitioner that has a special interest in treating headache sufferers. I will be sure to ask them all what they think of the research you provide. Maybe they could answer what it is I am doing wrong as to make it not work for me.
Maybe they could also shed that same light on the reasons if doesn't seem to work for several people at Clusterheadaches.com or why it does not seem to even be listed as a treatment option at O.U.C.H?
Maybe the documents will shed some light on why it doesn't work for the husband of the poor woman that just posted on my site about it. I am sorry sir, but saying it enough times will NOT make something true and from my perspective, that is what you marketing department is trying to do. I have my experiences and no matter how many people you send in to try to "spin" them, they are still valid. It would be best to stay clear of my blog in the future. Be aware that I am somewhat savvy and can see a visitors IP address.
The funny thing is, at first I was simply off handedly stating that it didn't work for me and that people should try it for themselfs.... its the aggressive behavior of you company that has put me at odds and made me feel like I have to defend my position and the people I feel I represent.
"person makes satement about personal space on the internet and internet having "no limits" and that the cost of being on the web is to have companies and individuals take advantage of that freedom"
Are you serious? No limits? Sir, we have the same limits we have ALWAYS had. It is a public space same as any other, and I expect your company to act the same way they would if they were in a park, mall, or on my green as it was viewable from the street... with respect. The fact that you choose not to do that speaks volumes.
Look, I know you may very well believe in what you are saying... but if you have never personally experienced a cluster headache you may just not understand. I think your company may just be barking up the wrong tree recommending this to people with cluster headaches. Where did they even get the people for the cluster studies? I just can't imagine it, Have you ever SEEN a person in the middle of a really bad attack? If they took 10-15 people having mild attacks then... pft. sure. but you know what? Most of us SLEEP THROUGH THOSE. We could care less about something that takes out the pain of a 1-3 level attack (2-5 being what I would consider a migraine level pain, yes... I have both) After 16-17 years I can do a "normal" level of headache pain without batting an eye.
So when I say it wasn't worth it to me... I mean it... it simply didn't offer me anything worth the effort and annoyance. Hitting myself in the base of the skull with a blunt object repeatedly offers more relief. Thats not a joke by the way, if you don't know what I'm taking about then you need to learn more about cluster headaches.
I don't know if your email was an attempt at an apology, but in some ways it had quite the opposite effect. heh. once again, you may have underestimated that you are dealing with a population of people who are constantly in a foul mood. (that was a joke, sorta)
