Possibly Helpful for Migraine Headaches
Nitrous Oxide

10 carts. inhaled Nitrous Oxide (gas)
Today I began to have an aura right when I was about to crack open a canister. I am able to close my eyes and very clearly see a partial circle aura that moves light similar to what a Black Opal does.

I took migraine abortive first, but decided to try the canisters and see what happened. Usually my aura hangs out but I noticed it went from covering the center of my right eye's vision to migrating towards the edge of my eye until it disappeared completely.

Right now I have no aura and no pain and maybe a slight tinge of what was coming. It seems MUCH better than my medication usually does, but tread lightly. I just couldnít find research and this seems like a potential treatment for Cluster headaches if itís legit and not placebo.
