Smiley I'm so pleased to have come across this website for CH sufferers, I've been suffering now for 11 years and I started a new cycle on the 30th Nov so I'm 3 weeks into it and came looking for any kind of relief or advice i can find.
Unfortunately my doctor doesnt seem to have a clue what I go through so i intend to show him this website, he laughed when I asked him if i could try oxygen treatment, but I'm sick of putting imigran injections into my leg and feeling like a smack head. I'd much rather have a more natural remedy.
I dont think much research is being done in the U.K for CH I wish it was 'cos I'd be up there at the front of the queue willing to try anything they had to offer.  
I'm dreading Christmas I'm a single mum and I'm praying that I dont get an attack which will ruin the whole day for my daughter...  
I get imigran injections on prescription, but he'll only prescribe 2 at a time so i find myself saving them for times when I really have to go out that day to pay the bills or buy food. My doctor seems to think I will misuse them if he prescribed more, and i can assure you this is not the case as I asked about the oxygen and got laughed at.
So I find myself saving an injection for Christmas day just in case... then I might be able to spend a few hours playing with my daughter and her new toys.  
It's not fair is it??? I'd love to know what I did that made me deserve these headaches.  Huh

Welcome....
 
Rest assured you did nothing to deserve or bring on CH. There are quite a few Brits here and I'm sure one will be along that can advise you in navigating the British healthcare system. I will say that if your Doc laughs at O2, you need to find another Doctor...like right now.

I'm with Bill on this one.  You didn't do anything.  Get a new Doctor that you can work with.   I'm sure some of the folks from OUCH-UK will be along with more regional info for you.
 
In the meantime, welcome!
