asked me to try to envision some extra circulation running into it. It's almost all physical. It's second nature to me know and I can do this while on my keyboard. I'm not some kind of mystic practicing Zen or other fuzzy far eastern thing. I think anything that results in forcing our bodies to send blood to specific areas will have some effect. This may be why we get the occasional post about erections being beneficial. For the life of me, the idea of using this amusement area during a cluster is baffling. No doubt Jonny could though :^)...Make your own jokes; it's a rich field.

When I have an attack (I try to catch it very early if possible as if I can be alone and fight it, I can sometimes prevent it from developing at all. I never give up until it's gone, however) I like to sit in my kitchen chair, in the dark with my left arm at my side. I sat and moaned, held my head in no doubt a bizarre looking position, sweat though the thing while trying to get this technique to work. It almost always shortened the attack. Sometimes not, but most of the time it worked well and now and then it stopped them very quickly. Whatever this is, it's like feeling the interior of your arm or other extremities. Please keep at this as I sound crazier every time I try to explain it. Here is a letter from someone who used it with success:

I know it's awful of me to post this, but I do it because the damned thing can work. Here is another:

RE: Some help maybe

All I can say is that I'm not alone. They got the standard circulatory feedback post and used it. I wish I knew how to expalin it better.
