Sorry, I forgot who those were that asked me for an update on the chiropractic treatments I have been recieving. But here is the update.
By the way, I know that chiropractic is probably not the answer we are needing and that many have reported failure in their attempts to obtain relief from CH's in this way. I also know of those who have ended their cycles through chiropractic adjustments.
But, the consensus is that it takes more than a few treatments to get it done properly. So, I have committed to an extended treatment program.
I just finished my 12th adjustment in about six weeks. The plan is to continue at three a week for another month, depending upon the results, and then taper off to one a month by the end of the year.
Results to date:
Last night (Well, Monday night, actually) was the first night since early December that I went the entire night without at least one attack. And none all day -- I even missed my nooner. Typically, I have been going three to ten rounds with the CH god in every 24 hours. Having the night off was a great treat.
So, it's midnight here and I am now in the 33rd hour without the thingy hitting me -- Not even a shadow. I think that is pretty good, mesalf.
Also, I can sit up straight for the first time in three years and walk without constantly wincing. (That's "wincing" -- Not "winking".)
Plus, when I was to back my car out of the parking spot at Safeway I could actually turn to see behind me and not have to rely upon bashing into someone's car to tell me when to stop.
Not only that, but I think I have noticed a slight improvement in the vision in my right eye. That isn't the side my headaches are on but it is some sort of change in my vision.
Furthermore, I'm having the most wonderful BM's I have had since, well...Back in the old days. I know that this problem craps up with most Clusterheads, possibly caused by all of the meds.
And my sense of humor is returning, maybe.
Which reminds me, I have been gone a few days, and when I signed back onto the board tonight I got a deja-vu feeling similar to walking into a bar right after a brawl. Very strange.
Anyway, forgive me, whomever it was I promised to send the results to. I lost all of my email files when my AOL began freezing up with one of those goofed up upgrades they like to send out.
So, email me or respond here if you have further info or questions.
Anyone else to add comments about chiropractic aid, please do. I'm taking this on partly as a research project. But I'm enjoying the results so far.
