You have to be very disciplined because you don't see small improvements, it just goes suddenly.
    Particularly when laying down and sleeping, took 14-17 days of no flushing to wake up without any swelling in the morning.
    Happy it did work for you too! Im planning to try It... With your flushing, did you experience burning sensation? It is the worst part for me. Also, which were your triggers? Laying down, Heat/cold, eat anything...?

    My flushing was extremely bad at the beginning of this year but it is much better now ( but not fully resolved). I had to sleep on my back too or my face would fill with blood. I can sleep on my side again. Clonidine stopped the overwhelming flushes but now I have switched to MSM which is working well.
    Duloxetine has greatly helped the stinging.
    @Momof, How many times did you do laser and which laser specifically? I was considering laser sometime in the future but also worry about the longterm implications, especially since I'm only 23. Though I wonder if it matters since I already deal with flushing..

    Hi behereniw,
    I did 6/7 lasers over about 2 and a half years. It was a vbeam machine. I know lots of people think laser is great but I would caution against it. Yes it might help your flushing but it could also rupture blood vessels and make the flushing worse.
    In my case, I only did it to get rid of a few veins. It didnít immediately cause flushing. What it did do was gradually destroy my skin barrier and sensitized the nerves so I got very painful stinging and burning.
    After about 6 months of the stinging and burning, the nerves must have triggered the blood vessels and the throbbing and flushing started.
    It has absolutely ruined my life. I have gone from being a really cold person to being a very warm person always trying to stay cool.
    Only for medication which had helped a lot, I donít know how I would have carried on.
    My sincere advice is to trial MSM, Clonidine, Propananol, Duloxetine or any of the other anti flushing meds recommended on this site. Save your hard earned money. Laser is expensive and just a cash cow for practitioners and a lot of them donít know what they are doing.

    I agree with this post. Lasers and IPL are not good for flushing, and can make it far worse.

    MSM will probably work for you too but I have to warn you again-I have a lot of strange stiffness in different parts of my body-quite uncomfortable. I can only assume it is the MSM causing it. I deliberately didnít take any yesterday or today-so Iíll see if the stiffness is gone by tomorrow. I didnít flush today without it so I might be able to control my flushing by taking it every second day and that should minimise the side effects.
    Hey Momof, do you still take MSM? I started it like few weeks ago with very promising results but it has worsened. Now I upped my dose to 3x 1g daily but I'm not sure I can't go back to that daily block of flushing like in the beginning. Do you think "overdosing" it could make it worse?
    I take supplement currently might switch to powder

    I think it gets worse because it dries out my skin combined with this harsh Winter weather. I will probably reduce MSM and keep taking Propranolol.
