My headaches started when I was 15. I hadn't taken anything at that point.
Later on I discovered that taking LSD and also Psylocybin/Psilocilin was completely effective in both aborting headaches, breaking the cycle, and even preventing future episodes. I have now been using these drugs for 7 years to do just that, and they have never failed me.
I've also done a lot of research into why they work, all of it has been posted on this board over the last 2 1/2 years. Briefly the drugs are similar in structure to Serotonin and block the Serotonin receptors. Both are also mild vascular constrictors.
In the last 12 months or so, several others have also tried using these substances to treat their condition, also with a complete sucess rate.
So the upshot is, that far from causing your condition these drugs may be the most effective way to combat it. They are far less dangerous that the stuff you get prescribed by the Doctor. Icidentally LSD was originally used to treat migraine, before it became a recreational substance. The effective dose for CH treatment is 25 micrograms (yes MICROgrams) once every 6 months. This is about 1/4 of the typical recreational dose. The maximum effective recreational dose of LSD is 300-500micrograms, at this point it has pretty much blocked every single serotnin receptor so there isn't any point in taking more. LSD is 1000 times less toxic than caffiene and nicotene. It is only slightly more toxic than Vitamin A. It is unlikely that enough LSD to poison a person, has ever been present in one place. LSD has been preven counter-addictive. This means is does the opposite of getting you hooked. The drug is ineffective if taken within 3-5 days of the previous dose. Those stories about people jumping out of windows are true, but the drug wasn't LSD it was PCP (Angel Dust). It isn't addictive either, just highly toxic and very dangerous. LSD has no known side effects other than the obvious. To poison a person with psychoactive mushrooms they would have to eat their own body weight in the fungis.
I hope this clears things up. Again.
