Hi all,i'm just getting over one but am left with a head that is swimming.
I've been very happy since finding this site, NOT happy mind you that you all suffer as I do but happy that I am not allone.
It's hard when you have no one to talk to about this.
My Pat is wonderfull but suffers frome Migrain and thinks this is just that.
Been suffering for 25 years then 10 years ago a young doctor diagnosed me with CH,Imitrex works for me but now I have to depend on Vetrans Hospital doctors.
when they found out that I had been using Imitrex injectible they were shocked that the doctor prescribed it.
Now I have nothing to fight the pain with. I am going to go to my old private doctor to see if he can talk to these veteran adminastration docs.
Maybe they will listen. I was very happy to read some of the postings from the women that suffer with it because one of the more frustrating things I've heard when trying to explain the pain
of CH is "Men, it's a good thing they can't have kids, they'ed never survive"
I don't wish this on anyone but am glad to hear a womans view from expireance with CH.
I wish you all the best, and hope you are pain free.
Maybe someone will bring this to the attention of the mainstream.
