eye patch/pressure head band

I am new to this site so forgive me if I am monoplolzing things. Because this problem of CH has perplexed the hell out of me I am trying to figure out the whys of this dreaded and annoying malady.
 
I am a get it done kind of guy so I was thinking about something today. Of course other then the bruised feeling I have , yesterday I was free from a headache and I thought that wow maybe this was a nightmare and tomorrow I would be cured.
 
No such luck. Today Headaches returned but I have yet to have the type where I want to smash my head like the kid who took our pumpkin on Halloween and threw it in to the street the little s--t.
 
Anyway I am taking a pole.
 
Has anyone ever tried an eye patch over their affected eye for the relief of pain.
 
Has anyone ever tried a pressure head band for the relief of pain specifically over the site of the temporal area.
 
I would appreciate a response one way or another.

For years I would wrap a bandana around my skull with the knot directly on the temple that was effected.
 
That no longer works.

Burt,  
 
    The pressure you refer to has ALWAYS been for me right at the back of my skull.   I can't exactly describe where it is.  But I've always been able to hit the right spot on other people who have CH.
 
    Just ask Roxy.  Or Cat.   Wink

My eye gets too sensitive to put any pressure on it, and blocking light only works for migraines, not for my CH.  As for pressure elsewhere, I literallly grind and icepack as hard as I can around my eye or between my eye and ear as needed.  It usually only gives temporary relief.

I used to press a mug filled with hot coffee hard against my forehead over my right eye, while I waited for the effect of the Ergotamine to set in. It provided a little relief but not nearly enough!
 
Nowadays I don't bother doing anything else but sucking my Oxygen, which helps in 95% of all attacks.

I keep a sweat band handy. sometimes I put magnets on the pressure spots (easiest things to find when I'm getting hit). Put pressure on them. I don't know if it helps but it gives me something to do when I'm smashing my head against the wall.
 
I've also tried the banana peels - didn't help, but the fruit flies loved me.  
 
Ice packs help some.
 
Usually O2 and hot coffee help at the onset (I usually get hit about 4 in the morning - have the coffee pot set to come on at 3:30 so it's ready when the old eyes pop open and the O2 tank handy). I'm chronic so it's usually a daily thing. Shadows are common most of the day, but I can handle them.  
 
Try the black coffee at the first sign (after about a 4 it doesn't work).
 
Hugs BD
