Yes, I have blocked the memory of pain a number of times. I have always been very thankful that I could. Who would want to live with that memory?
Ten years ago I had a total hip replacement. I remember that (outside of CHs) it was the worst pain I had ever felt in my life. But within a few weeks, I could no longer remember the pain. The same thing has happened with these attacks. Unless I refer back to something else that was happening at the time, I have a hard time remembering when my last cycle started and ended. My doctor had to remind me when I last requested a refill on meds.
I have not noticed any other memory loss, but since I am episodic (for about 6-8 weeks at a cycle), it may be different for me.
Is this a great board or what?
