I had also gone 2 years without a CH and
I thought I was over them but when they came back
they were worse.
I was 13 when I first got them and it felt like
I had something in the back of my eye it did not
hurt just annoying.
Now I'm 34 and going from doctor to doctor until
a year or so ago I finally found one that cared
enough or understood enough and sent me to a
specialist and I found out they were CH's.
I owe him my life cause I tell ya it was getting
bad all night long every hour I would have an
one this would go for days.
Try to go to work and vomit up due to all the
pain killers I was taken which never worked.

Now I take Ergotamine they have help me alot
I take 75mgs a day for a week when they start
comming back then I have to slowly cut down
the dose until I have weened off them as they are
a quaterzone (steriod) I'm told, they are not to
good for you but WHO CARES right.
