Yeah, doctors not only have strict medical guidelines they must follow by the board, but they also have strict state guidelines. If a procedure or treatment isn't approved he can't do it, no matter how successful it is. It has to be researched, which takes 10-15 years, and then approved before he can use it.

Something those who live in a medical school community can do if they want on the ground floor of techniques they are researching is to volunteer as a participant in these. You won't know if you are getting a placebo or the real deal, but it's worth it if you are getting the real deal and the real deal works!

Do any of you other cluster headache sufferers notice that stress seems to always trigger them?
