I slept until 10:30 am today, this is the first time in 35 years I have dared because it meant a certain attack if I slept past my 5-5:30am mark. I still can hardly believe that I didn't have a cluster when I got up so late.
Also I have experienced something I had heard of but never really believed in very much, I had my eye swell like it always does during an attack, I got the terrible neuralgia in the bones in my face and in my teeth, I broke out in a sweat all over my forehead(Like always) but I never had the head pain at all. No eye pain at all. It was very weird indeed, I still got nausious and threw up and every thing just no head pain. My Doctor says it's more often a phenomenon that occurs in Migrainers but he has heard of it occassionally in cluster sufferers. The Oxy Contin is still holding me at the 2 to 3 a day level but almost pain free, as close as it gets Me Think's Arrggggg! Pappy
