...do you have to see everything in black and white?
Nowhere did I state that this was the cause of every attack. If we're having these headaches X number of times a day, then we might as well run a few tests. Personally I believe that we have a duty to ourselves and others to try a few things, in disorganised little tests, and share the data. Getting rid of these headaches is a fairly big incentive.
A little analogy for you:
Imitrex doesn't work on everyone. Does that mean that it's not really an effective treatment for CH?
You have tested negative for Candida. Does that rule out Candida as a factor in the cases of Ted, Denis O'C and myself?
Bearing in mind that candida is a potentially fatal condition. If Margi hadn't pointed me at that link I would have ended up in a box at 35. So do I just keep quiet, and hope that everyone else on the board isn't also infected? What would you have done?
Most people haven't even bothered to spit (at least you did), so we don't have a lot of data to go on. But if it continues to average out at 30% then a lot of people on this board need treatment ASAP. Those people are going to be spitting in a glass every morning for quite some time.
Responding to the pain with a bodily function IS unlikely to work in ALL instances. But if it cuts the number of attacks per day by 1, then surely it's worth trying.
I'm not being scathing, I'm just responding to your negative vibes :)
I'm sorry if my posts have wound you up.
