I am reading this board since February every day. My first post had the number 6466. This means I have read three quarters of all post the day they were written (and I have read most of the previous posts). I never ever found an instance when people who described their affliction have been turned down because their symptoms were not like CH. On the contrary, they always are welcomed warmly and given a direction more appropriate for their case.
My sympathy goes to all CHeads who in addition also suffer from migraine. But we DON'T want to become a general migraine discussion group, it's already hard enough to find the CH related stuff between butterfly farts and sweaty feet.Migraineurs have many web sites to turn to, and DJ created this site because he got tiered to read through HUNDREDs of general headache messages to find one related to CH.
SO LET'S KEEP THIS BOARD EXCLUSIVELY FOR PEOPLE AFFLICTED WITH CH.
We (or at least me) also don't like people who tell us just to chill out or stick Midrin with magnets to the head wounds, who don't have the guts to post their e-mail address, but instead start to slander DJ and all the kind and caring people on the board.
To Dennis: For my first 'headaches' I was prescribed a fast acting Aspirin, and it 'helped', after 15 to 30 minutes I was starting to come down from a Kip 8-10. If you, Dennis, are still doing the dance while swallowing handfuls of otc painkillers, do yourself a favor and get another doctor, or at least don't poison your body with stuff that does a dam against CH.
I step down the soap box and go to cast my vote for Todd,
