Title: Got O2?
Post by chronic_chic on Dec 29th, 2003, 6:48pm
I do!  Finally!!

Told my neuro all about what's been going on and he asked the nurse to have a nonrebreather mask available for me to work on my own.  They showed me how to set it to 15... blah blah forget the exact terminology.  But hopefully this will be of some great help!  Getting DHE every 8 hrs and solumedrol too.

Take care and PF

Try putting your 02 tank outside....this works great in the winter when it's cold.  Just use a cutoff valve to turn it on or off.

Thanks for the messages....i did use it last night 4 times, and it helped BIG time.  reduced attack time and brought down the severity much faster.  the only attack that i didn't wipe out with it quite as well was 4am one for me.  

question though.  i just saw my neuro and i told him about all that.  he said that the dhe i'm on should prevent me from needing the O2 since it should have knocked out the clusters.  i mean...dhe isn't the one and only wonder drug for every person is it?  i used dhe injections before i ever got to this point, and they didn't stop them.   hmm :-/

any advice would be appreciated! :)  thanks!

Nothing, I repeat nothing, works for EVERYBODY.  I'm glad that you are getting some relief.  The dhe does work for a lot of people, so do a lot of things.  Most docs think if it worked for one ch patient last year it will work for all of us.... BULLSHIT...This is one tricky sonofabitch.  You've got to outsmart the bastard.  Hang in there girl, keep sucking up that O2.

Did you wake up at 4am with a full blown CH?

They key to 02 is getting on it as soon as you feel the beast comming, the only thing its good for when you wake up full blown is trying to hold it down while another abortive has a chance to work.

Thomas is right in his post, sorry Babe!
