Dear Sonya,
I would have e-mailed you but you don't have your e-mail listed anymore. In any event, I was reading one of your responses to someone about shadows and you said you had a beer when you only had shadows and thought you were at the end of your cycle and bam a bad cluster. Did that bring you back into a cycle or Did that make the cycle continue longer. Just curious. My husband is in that situation now. His cycle just dosen't want to go away. Its a little over 3 months and he was doing pretty good just twinges and some shadows and he had 2 beers, within 2 hours or so he had a #3 cluster and had to take an injection for fear of it climbing to a #10. Since then he has had minor ones but sometimes 3 a day where he needs oxygen or an imitrex pill. He is only on verapmil which we cut down to 240mg a day (i know its low, but dr. was trying to wean him off because he was doing better). Now we are not sure if it was the beer that brought him back into the cycle or if this cycle has turned into chronic. Thanks for any info you can provide.

P.S. The night before he had the beers, he tried Champagne (had a full bottle) no cluster effects at all.
