Sorry the Beast is beating you up so bad, but glad you found us. This is definitely the place to come to vent or to know that you are not alone.
My husband is the sufferer in our family and we've tried almost every drug imaginable for him and he has never found relief with anything for long. Imitrex worked for a while for him but not anymore. He has been battling the beast without drugs for the last 4 years and, this last cycle, he tried the Water Treatment (see the Water x 3 button on the left of this page) and it has had amazing results for him.
He has also used Dramamine/Gravol to get to sleep at night and it has prevented the middle of the night attacks for him. As well, you mentioned you use heat....Mike uses ice bags on the back of his neck to fight the pain.
Just some alternative ideas for you and please feel free to email me anytime if I can help.
