How do you live with this
May 4th, 2022 at 2:44am
 
Im 37 years old living in Canada and have been getting chronic cluster headaches for the past 7 years now and my cycle is usually september to may. I used to have a good job, girlfriend, apartment and was happy. Soon as the clusters started I tried to keep it all together but the constant absence at work made me lost my job which lead to losing everything else. Ive tried numerous medications and nothing worked at all for years. In Jan they put my on lithium and for once it stopped the clusters but the lithium makes me so dizzy I can hardly walk straight.

So my question is how do you guys live like this? My doctor refuses to put me on disability cuz im not "sick" for the whole year so I dont qualify. what am I missing here cuz im borderline homeless living in peoples furnace rooms

I feel for you. I've been where you are. I have had CH for 34yrs. What I learned from CH.com saved my life! Oxygen let me have a more normal life, but most Doctors know little about what it takes to stop an attack

Vitamin D3 has helped me and many others. Go there! Ask questions, learn to survive.
