Can we come up with a list of stupid shit people have told you to help with your headaches.  I'll start it with #1
 
My mom has told me for 12 years to sleep with the vaporizer on.  
 
I comment was, "what the hell is that going to do when I am getting hit in the middle of the day"
 
I could go on with others but wouldn't want to take someone else's brilliant idea.  I was given all kinds of advice on Easter sunday by a bunch of idiots

Early on, before I was diagnosed, I had an optometrist tell me that the headaches were caused by astigmatism and eye strain.  He had me enter into a program of "eye exercises" that would supposedly correct this.  (I was about 14. )  
 
Basically, the apparatus looked something like this:
 

 
....with the difference that you could adjust the distance between the two pictures.  
 
The "exercises" consisted of putting the images farther and farther apart, making yourself go snake-eyed, and crossing your eyes until the images coalesced into a single stereo image.  I got pretty good at it.
 
To this day, I can still watch a 3-D movie without the special glasses.
 
Needless to say, it didn't cure the headaches.
 
Best,
 
George

Wearing the tangerine suits
And their harlequin eyes.
The pain they inspire
Draws in harmonica melodies
And the feathers of birds
Which flame up at their touch.
It all comes to light in the sheer
Debonair.

LOL Yes!
I was told "oh, it's probably just stress because you've not been getting enough sleep lately" Uh yeah, I've not been getting enough sleep because I've been getting CL's 5 X's a night for 3 months!  
I'm much better now that I'm on Depakote and take an iced sweet(ish)- with caffine drink to bed with me at night.

Ok, here's mine:
 
My mother used to tell me: "have a donut" to pretty much every problem, including ch. Roll Eyes
 
I quit eating donuts and other similar stuff four yeas ago. It took my mother longer to get that, but I believe that finally she understands that a can of energy drink helps me a lot more with ch! Wink

Anybody notice a common thread here? With the exception of two so far, everybody's advice came from their mom. And it was bad.

This one is really stupid Smiley
 
When I was at work and didn't know I had CH yet I thought it had something to do with the draft at work(at that point I didn't even know that draft could be a trigger but I felt it was related to my pain)
So I said to my chef;"I think I've  been getting these pains because of the draft out here I can feel there's draft I can feel it In my ears",so he said"well put ear plugs in then"!
 
Well the draft also comes in my nose,just imagine seeing me walking at work with earplugs in my ears and In my nose Smiley

I started getting my clusters after my mom passed away from pancreatic cancer.
 
So, my grandmother said to me "maybe your ponytails are too tight"

awesome with the magnets Karla.  I had them given to me and needless to say, it didn't do a dam thing.  When I woke in the middle of the night with an attack, I threw it across the room.  
 
Also......hipnosis, chiropracter, biofeed back.  
 
But the best was again from Mom..."You need to get a grip on these headaches"  You can't curse at Mom but I almost did when she said that.  arggghh!!!!! How do you grip a friggin headache.  Anyone?????

"Pull it togather or just shake it off". "this headache thing of yours is getting to be a pain in the ass". "You better not be faking this because i never seen people act like that before". "Im not paying $62.00 for those pills to stop your little headaches." "jesus not again!! you always do this shit when my show is coming on". These are only a few of the things i listened to over the years. So when my boss asked me 2 months ago " Bill are you sure this time zone thing isnt just wraped up in your own MIND". I thought of a way to explain, and when it was in the plain dealer newspaper last week i showed him the report and said " See boss it's not in my HEAD, it's in my HEAD!!.   coach bill

I am just LMAO at each and every one of these stupid theories people come up with.  Nobody gets it till they live through an attack.  
I perosonally haven't been given any really dumb advice but just about anyone I have ever told that I get these things responds with "oh yeah me too"  Wink Wink

"You just need to soak your feet in HOT water!"
 
This little tidbit came from an IRS auditor during an audit...  Seems her son gets these things and that's what he does.
NOTE: She's no LONGER with the IRS - seems they had a little probem with her giving out medical advice! (I can be such a bitch when I'm getting hit!)And her "cure" didn't work anyhow. Smiley

That can actually help with a regular vascular/tension headache. Heat up the tissue in your feet, blood is drawn away from the head.
 
Not suggesting any of us might get any relief that way, however. Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, nor should my words be construed as medical advice. Cuz I'm not resigning my screenname. Grin

When I first started getting these "headaches" I was 53 years old and my Mom was long gone.  I have no siblings, so I relied on my bestest and dearest friends for advice.
 
Every blasted one of them either said "I get those too", or "take Excedrin and lie down in a dark room".  My replies were "no you don't", and "I can't".
 
Then, they all had the pleasure of witnessing a full blown hit.  They no longer give me advice and they are still my bestest and dearest friends.

My wife and sister in law both think all I have to do is change the lightbulbs from fluorescent to something else and limit my use on the computer. Long story short - two things are staying - the fluorescent light and computer use (especially since it is part of my profession).

My wife insisted that I try the pillow with magnets in it because she heard it cures HAs, so I did just to make her happy. Needless to say, it did nothing.

That eye apparatus is a classic  Grin
 
The funniest thing I was told to help my headaches was to drink more by a bunch of friends while at a brewery. They insisted that I was getting headaches because I wasn't drink enough.
 
Since I do like to drink, I followed their advice - then promptly had a KIP 10 headache and made a public spectacle of myself  Grin
