Hello Karyn,

I Wish I did know something that would help you.

It has been suggested to me to try the following
Kind of drained at the moment. But trying to remember:

- Ice on hands and feet or put feet in bucket of ice water. Also, maybe take a cold shower?

- Strenuous excersize in order to get the blood flowing to the extremeties. This has been reported to be 100% effective by some for some. (Thanks Lynn Davidson BTW, I have tried it did help some but man you've got to be tough at the start because of the jostling/jarring:)

- Rapid breathing. Like trying to get the very last bit of o2 out of the air. (Thanks Nancyc)

- Visualization: Think of something that is great and try to keep focusing on it...

- Dr. Wrights circulatory method: Seems to be basically bio-feedback, Concentrate on sending blood flow to hands (Or other extremities) in order to help get some blood out of the head, thereby relieving the CH. (Charlie S explains this much better than I)

I am sure that I did not get it right, but I tried. I really hope that it eases up on you. Look around there are some great suggestions that people are constantly making... Hopefully someone will come along who can help you a ittle more!

Praying for you right now! Hang in there! We're pulling for you!

Love and PF time soonest, Michael B
