GOOD - straightforward info re: your experience
very valuable !

I certainly wouldn't have any reason to argue with what you present......
If you're pleased with what you perceive as the result of the treatment, then you're getting somewhere

2 things to remember though:

1. It is risky for ALL of us to tie longterm changes in our CH patterns to particular treatments IF we ARE in fact still getting recurring clusters;
I have gone up to a couple years "chronic", and gone as long as a couple years with not a twitch- and have learned that for me the changes in cluster duration & frequency have very little to do with any treatment or lack thereof

2. I've looked into this treatment in the past, and had DRs explain it to me - usually with a negative recommendation (as in: "some people try this, but it doesn't usally work" type statement)
but have never tried it.
In my view, if you've done it 5 or 6 times, and still get annual recurrences, it isn't at all succesful - which is what I mean by differences in perspective
