Jleon,
If chewing gum relieves your pain, more power to you. Keep on chewing if it helps you.

I'm curious, when you say chewing gum cures your CH, do you mean it cures that particular episode? And if you have two more in the day, it cures those too? Or has it completely stopped your cycle? At nght, if you don't flex your jaw, you still get CH, right?
 
I suppose you will find out for sure next cycle. Around here, we call that a treatment, because there is no cure. Not yet.
 
But if it works for you, congratulations.

ITS TRUE! ITS TRUE!
 
Just the other day in the middle of a KIP 9 while trying to gouge out my eye with a table spoon I thought to myself:
 
"Hmmm, a nice stick of gum would be nice right about now."
 
But I didn't have one. So I went to retrieve the wad of Bazooka I stuck under my desk 6 months ago. HMMM. Yummm. Chew chew chew. When I went to stand up I wacked my head on the bottom of the desk. Felt pretty good so I continued to whack my noggin while I chewed on my flavorful wad of Bazooka and sure enough! In 20-40 minutes my CH had completely disappeared!  
Its a fucking miracle!

To help a new person out a little. People tend to be suspicious of a person whose very first post mentions a cure for CH.
 
There are literally thousands of years of CH experience here, and therefore we are a mite cynical. Undecided
 
Can I draw your attention to the "new visitors" link in yellow on the left.
It is suggested there:
 
"Your first post
 
Now, about that first post of yours. Please share your experience with us. What are your symptoms? How long have you had clusters? Are you episodic or chronic? What meds have you tried? What works for you? If you have a question, try to be specific, it helps us help you"
 
 
Hope that helps
 
Wendy

 
Jleon welcome and what Wendy said here is very true.  
 
We don't want to scare off newbie’s but it is best to choose your words better when new.
 
You will get the best advice and support here if you suffer from CH.  We have had a few bad experiences with "trolls" and are just on the lookout to protect our own people and site.
 
When you become a regular visitor and we come to know you better then people get more tolerant of each others view points.
 
Sorry that you started on a bad footing.  Try to stick around if you are a cluster sufferer and give us the chance to learn to know you better.
 
We are not just people who suffer around here we are also each others best supporters.

It is up to YOU to educate yourself and then help your doctor plan your treatment. If you just sit down in front of your doctor and say "make me better" you are setting yourself up for a great deal of pain.

LMAO.
 
Jleon, I'm glad you found something that works for you. As you can see, we can be a skeptical bunch. Don't let that chase you away. If you suffer from CH, this is the best place to be.
 
My skeptical brothers and sisters...
...for the record I have made my first (and often only) post on a CH MB a declaration of my success with kudzu. While I didn't claim to have a "cure", I was not met with any resistance, either.

Believer Nani,
 
Unlike Kudzu, gum has not shown to have any effects on CH.
If that was indeed a CURE, a lot of us would have found that out long time ago.
 
Sinusbusters, which is also a scam, makes more sense to me than chewing gum.
Eating Bull Shit (litterally) would benefit us more than gum.
It's got TAURINE in it!!! Grin
 
Nobody has chased Jleon out of here, yet.
And that's probably because of his minty fresh breath!
Time will tell...
 
 
Jonny, try looking at your TROLL ALERT with 3D glasses!
Man, that might be the AMAZING CURE we're all waiting for!!! It just CURED a kip 5 in no time! Wink

This works well to. Step firmly in chewed gum. Remove shoe. Use gum side  to repeated smash yourself between the eyes with shoe.

Chewing gum makes the muscles in my jaw tense up so bad it could easily bring on a headache.  Can't imagine it providing relaxation and if relaxation "cured" CH chiroprators would RULE.
But, hey, whatever floats your boat.  Welcome to the loony bin.
Since I have a son in chiro school I hope they do find a cure because then he would make lots of money and be able to afford to put me in a higher class nursing home.

OK, that was very funny... but the Bazooka one wasn't.  
 
Why did someone post a "Troll alert"? I'm not trying to sell anything or bother anyone!  
 
Anyway, I think I'm going off cycle now as the end of November approaches, and maybe I'll come back next time and let you wankers know if it still works.  
 
p.s.-next time I'll know not to use words like "amazing" and "cure" on a medical message board unless I want my head handed to me.  laugh

I hope you are ending your cycle.  That would be great.  But don't feel that you have to leave just because you're out of cycle.  Many of us are here to support others and to continue learning about CH. So hopefully you will check in from time to time. Wink

Welcome to the board Jleon. You can keep your head
 
for now. But,
 
using the word "cure" is an unforgivable sin.  
 
Next time Bubba and Junior will come to your house and rip your head off, turn it upside down and stuff it down your neck-hole.

I have to support Jleon on this one, in spite of the suspicious tagline.  Chewing works well for me on shadows at least (haven't had a full-blown CH since beginning clusterbusting).  Chewy candy like Skittles is my weapon of choice.

Was reading this again, laffing to myself......"Chewing gum. Yeah, right. That's right up there with brown apples and bleu cheese." OK, not an earth shattering revelation, but it's another one of those stupid pet tricks for the archives.
 
Then it ticked......brown apples. There's something about brown apples...........from the OUCH site:
 
Here's an e-mail about another treatment from a sufferer:
Tony battled for two weeks at a time with his attacks .... the last time (about 4 years ago) we gave up in despair and sought natural treatment ..... he was told as follows:
 
* peel an apple at night when you go to bed
* first thing in the morning (before you even get out of bed) eat the apple - it should be brown by now
* strong cup of coffee
* brisk walk
* and drink (and this is big helper) at least 2 liters of distilled water everyday
 
he has not had another attack for 4 years, we advised anther sufferer to try this remedy - after being in hospital for 2 weeks as well .... stopped his attack after 1 day .... maybe worthwhile mentioning

 
OK, so chewing gum isn't _all_ that stupid of an idea....but the memory wheels are still grinding, trying to remember, let alone find, the thread here from some years back on brown apples, and the ingredient which became active. Was it called.....t.....turpentine.....tarosamine.....taurine.....was THAT it? Taurine? The same crap that's getting so much attention thanks to Red Bull? Was that the stuff? Can you remember? I know I can't.
Chewing gum leads to hard thinking.
 
Just say no.

An old wives' tale states that chewing gum, if swallowed, may take up to seven years to become fully digested, and that swallowing gum could also result in the substance becoming lodged in the esophagus.  
 
This is untrue, and although chewing gum does resist complete digestion by the body, it is expelled like other foods, though relatively unchanged. There is also a very low, but real risk of gum becoming lodged inside the body.

Well...whattya know. In the span of 10 minutes I have found the cure for two of my ailments that have been driving me insane for over 20 years.
 
Now...all I have to do is eat one banana a day and the torment of my Restless Legs syndrome will go away and when I get the unrelenting pain of a Cluster ...just chew on a piece of gum.  Who knew, I've been suffering in pain for years, trying thousands of dollars of RX...not to mention other expensive remedies and all could've been cured by a 75 cent Banana and a 50 cent pack of gum.

yikes peeps easy not so harsh on the newbies,when i first came in here i was not think at all about useing the right words, fact is when you get here your clueless freaked out scared and truley out of your mind with concern, nobody here is a doctor,and nobody knows everything.
i will laugh when someone comes here with what looks to be a simple and stupid  idear that really works and we miss it cause we are to concerned with picking someone apart playing god. theres no need to be hurtfull towards anyone that is trying to be helpfull in the same statement we all know there are money hungry losers thats only goal is to prey on us that suffer from this horrible problem to them i say kiss off and die. i for one thank you for trying to help me with your i dear i hope it continues to help you.
