Though I agree with you Jack about the need for RELIEF during an attack, the need for more $$$ devoted to research, and most everything else you posted (NOT the tooth drilling part though...YIKES!!!).
The problem with dispensing drugs to treat the pain too often becomes the ONLY treatment a Dr. will offer.
Example...last week my EX-Neuro refused to increase the O2 flow rate from 5 litres to 10... Imagine my surprise when this Dr. told me "THAT is an unacceptable level of oxygen for CH patients" and flatly refused to order the increase. Instead his idea was to prescribe a "better painkiller" to...well, to basically shut me up!!!!
