Hello all,

I am new to this site, but I must say it seems to be exactly what I've been looking for...I have had clusters for 5 years, but I've finally found a Neuro who is sympathetic to my condition.

He has prescribed oxygen for me as an abortive, but I haven't filled it yet. 10 liters/min seems to be a very high concentration, so I'm worried about the cost, etc. I would greatly appreciate it if someone would care to describe your oxygen experience. I'd love to hear details such as how big the tank is, do you own or rent it, how much it costs, do you keep it year-round, or do you return it during periods of remission. Also, is oxygen treatment typically covered by medical insurance (or prescription plans)?

Sorry about the barrage of questions, but any answers are much appreciated. So far, my current cycle has been the worst yet, because the Sansert I am taking doesn't work completely anymore, so I am getting headaches about 3 times per week, and the headaches last 3 or 4 hours instead of 30 minutes like in the past.
