pain for nothing, got into a state of panic and started pouring down pills, was my pharmacist's best customer, the neuros would just listen to me moan for a couple of minutes, write up yet another prescription and send me on my wasy. Landed up in ER three times with bad reactions and contraindications. Finally purchased a Physicians handbook before the net days and starter reading with a medical dictionary next to it and only tried a small amount of a new med and during normal working hours so wouldn't have to pay ER fees.Turned out, I am better off without meds, my first clusters only lasted about 20 minutes and would go away. While I thought those 20 minutes was the worse pain in my life, beats the hell out of some of the headaches I got while on meds, I am back to my occasional 20 minute headaches that O2 knocks out in a hurry. Wish I learned about O2 a long time ago. O2 didn't work at all with some meds, in particular imitrex. Still have some shots left if anyone wants them, but they may be outdated.
