I lasted posted about 2 weeks ago when the Demon returned after a 7 month hiatus. I have suffered with CH for over 12 years and frankly I am getting sick and tired of this. In the past 2 weeks I have only gone 4 days without a headbanger. Last night was the jewel however. I went to bed at 10:30PM and felt that little "twinge" in my right temple. I immediately got up and took my Amadrine capsules (max 5 in 12 hours)and prepared for the worst. I was in full blown pain in 4 minutes and the Amadrine didnt kick in until the 45 minute mark. Chills, hot flashes, soaked with sweat..... this knife in my head is really ticking me off!
I ended up not getting any sleep at all last night, lovely. It's almost gotten to the point that I dont want to lay down to rest because I know in about 56 minutes, it's Showtime. I've played the medication roulette game, it seems like they all me me itch or just dont work. I do have 2 shots of Imitrex left that I WILL USE NEXT TIME! I feel like I constantly live in "Shadow Mode", the pain never quite all goes away.
I'm tired of all this. I'm tired of the pain, I'm tired of the medication, I'm tired living with a sword over my head that turns and enters my right temple, and particularly this morning, I'm just plain damned tired for not getting any rest last night fighting the demon!
Thank you. I'm sorry for going on so long. We have to find a cause and a cure for this!
Here's praying for a pain free day for all.
