After yesterdays bad attack, today has been relatively uneventful. From getting up at 7.30am until about 2.30pm I was shadowing on and off (Kip 1). However, none of these shadows developed into a headache. At the moment (6.00pm) my head feels normal. Therefore, in my opinion the shrooms are still helping, though it is still early days yet.

Here is a summary so far:

Four and a half years chronic, very good initial results (around four months) with a daily low dose of Verapamil, but clusters gradually getting worse over the last six months.

Monday 11th: 3 HEADACHES (between kip 4-8)

Tuesday 12th: 3 HEADACHES (between kip 4-8)

Wednesday 13th: 2 HEADACHES (between kip 6-8)

Thursday 14th: 3 HEADACHES (between kip 4-8)

Friday 15th: 5 HEADACHES (between kip 3-8)

Saturday 16th (shroom treatment day-4.00pm): NO HEADACHES

Sunday 17th: NO HEADACHES

Monday 18th: 1 HEADACHE (kip 4-lasting less than 5 mins)

Tuesday 19th: 1 HEADACHE (kip 9 for 75 mins-took further 2 hrs to subside)

Wednesday 20th: NO HEADACHES (but shadowing on/off first half of the day)

Intending to do the treatment again at a slightly higher dose this Saturday, unless I am completely cluster/shadow free until then.

Sorry for posting nearly everyday about my progress, and subsequently taking up space on the board. However, I do get the impression that people wish to know how I am going on with this line of treatment.

Best Wishes,
