After I became chronic I kept very close track of my efforts to win the battle. My Neuro let me look at my records all the time and I saw how methodic he was in his treatment I thought it would be a great help. I kept track "on a calender" of time of attacks, meds I was on dosage increases everything. It would be a shame to miss some help by stopping a med before you got to the dose that might be the ticket to less pain. Or it was easy to think I had tried everything there was when in fact there were many other things to try. I think this was a big part of my being totaly unable to work for 5 years to being able to work about 70% of the time and enjoy a reasonable life. Keep track of what you do and never ever give up. I know I won't. I also started with the easiest and least expensive things first. I always have been somewhat of a health nut. But ireally fine tuned it when I got my clusters. Sorry VD. But it just wasn't enough for me. I have never snoke drank and have always exercised and been in good health. As a matter of fact I was in the best health of my life when I started getting my cluster attacks. So if anyone suggest that I should try this or that I can at least know that I have tried many things. At first I refused to take drugs. But after being chronic with 3-5 3 hour attacks a day i was willing to swallow my stupid pride and try Meds. I am sure glad I did. Thanks for all your help and support You are the greatest!! Mike L
