Just like everything else concerning this hideous "disease/illness" what works for one doesn't translate to will work for all.
My Dr. also wrote the Rx for the O2 at a low flow rate, when that didn't work for me I FINALLY got the guage changed to one that goes to 15 liters & a non-rebreathing mask to go with it. I have since, (just 45 mins. ago in fact) pumped up the volume to the full 15, and have worked my way up to 15 mins. of breathing inside the mask to no avail. I may be doing wrong in my method, but I know of only 1 way to breath.
The fact is, O2 works for 80% of CH sufferers. Unfortunately, I am starting to think I fall into the 20% category.
I hope this is not the case for you. It took a LOT of yelliing and screaming to get the Neuro I was seeing to order the change in flow rate, I would advise if that is what it takes to get your Dr. to do the same....so be it.
Good Luck!!!
