The first time I saw a neuro for CH I had just finished my cycle. I went in loaded for Bear ! I had a HA journal, and every bit of info. I could find on CH. I thought I was going to have to convince this guy what I had. He asked me about 10 questions, and said "Yep, you have CH." Finally ! He asked me about my cycle schedule, and gave me a script for verapamil to take before I thought I would start my next cycle. He mentioned some other abortives we could try if the verapamil didn't work. (Prednisone, Oxygen) So far so good, the verapamil is working.
Keep one thing in mind. If you go in and this guy doesn't know crap, forget him. Keep looking for someone that does know what they are talking about. I got lucky and found someone pretty good the first time out.

Good luck
