Sergeant Grumbles: Honestly, I like the hallucinations. I don't even need drugs to get to see the entirety of creation ripple like droplets on a still pond. But that is almost always followed by blinding pain that feels like only a new hole in my head will cure.

Fortunately, my migraines are few and far between, but the kaleidescope crescent, zigzaggy glass shards and ripply fur static are all things I've experienced. Once I realize I'm not gonna die, I just sit back and enjoy the light show. Until the barfing starts, and the evil insinuating throbbing pain.

My grandfather had cluster headaches, he used pure oxygen to some success. I have nothing but sympathy for all the people in here who have it worse than I do.

Alicious: I tried Topamax but the side effect I had was way too disorienting. It was almost as if my depth perception was off or something. It really messed with my vision. I would reach for something and even though it looked like it was in one place, I was off by a couple of inches. So if a cup was on the table and I'd want a drink, I'd reach for it but end up grabbing a couple of inches off to the right and missing the cup.

/that reminds me of one of my favorite SNL skits - Kevin Nealon as "Mr. No Depth Perception". He'd make comments about people he thought were too far away to hear, but were right in front of him. A short but hilarious biatcheck it out if you can find it.

And thanks to DumbAmerican for the tip.
