Excellent news.
 
Hope you share that with that nurse who said it wasn't a CH remedy when first asked about it!

I believe I had it at 7-8 LPM.  It was gone in 5 minutes.

I was quite skeptical.  Thank God it worked.  I don't know what I would have done.

It's like being "born-again" isn't it? Now, your job is to extoll the virtues of O2 to one and all.  
 
Congrats on getting your O2 and doing something about it! Always great to hear about people who fought to get their O2 and then see results.

I'm always glad to hear of success stories with O2 but I wish I knew what it was like to get relief using it.  It must be an extraordinary feeling the way so many ch'ers carry on about it.  Perhaps I'm just a little jealous because it never worked for me and I'm stuck using too may chemicals to keep mine under control.  Anyway, congratulations!!

So glad to hear the 02 worked! I tote my tank and regulator around like a danged pacifier and baby blanket. No matter how short a trip I'm taking, shopping, etc., Mr E-Tank is my traveling companion! What's amazing is how much of the fear you can do away with, knowing you have a first line of defense to duck behind. Again, congrats, I couldn't be happier for you.

Awesome!!!!!!  Glad it worked for you, wonderfull feeling isn't it?  I really don't know what I'd do without the o2, I think I would have removed my head a long time ago.

I've been on Verapamil and Imitrex since I was diagnosed and wanted to try the more natural route.   Smiley

I just started a new cycle and have an appt with my doc this afternoon. I've stuck with the Prednisone Verapamil and Imitrex combo and it's worked for me since I started getting CH 4-5 years ago ... but this time I'm going to ask my doc to prescribe 02 for me, I have the 02 info printed out and ready to take with me ... hope my insurance will cover most (some) of the cost, my wallet is still bleeding from Christmas.
