Your so full of new ideas I can't keep up.
I ordered my shrooms weeks ago but they still haven't arrived.
I did the spit test sorry I may have been a day late posting it.
And now another blooming theory! But wait something clicked with this one. I entirely agree with you about the oversleeping thing - its simply inviting trouble. But its very hard to persuade yourself to get out of bed when your total sleep through a night can be counted in minutes rather than hours.
My point of agreement with you centres on routine and the fact that it can become self-sustaining.
When I am going through a bad spell, stuck at home for weeks on end, having attack after attack, day and night everything clicks into an entirely predictable ROUTINE....
OK, here we go better prepare myself for the 11.15am blast, oh, not quite as bad as yesterday thats good. Right I should be OK until about 1.20pm now thats usually a killer so I may need the Imitrex or shall I try and save it for the 4.50pm and so on and so on.
On a few occasions for various reasons when I've been stuck in my routine something has come along and upset it completely. I've had to get up earlier, I've had to eat at different times, I've had to do something physically exertive (rather than sitting around the house). The effect of this has been to completely alter or break the pattern of attacks. I cannot say that bouts/clusters have ended instantly following this change of pattern but more than once it has heralded the beginning of the end.
The big problem is that when the attacks are at their worst and you are at your lowest ebb you are not exactly overflowing with either the mental or physical strengh to make wholesale changes to the way you make your way through the day.
Don't stop thinking Flash - you're inspirational
PS I'm just going to surprise my body. It thinks I'm going for a dump but in fact I'm going to have a cup of tea! Hell I hope this works.
