My Ch's started in (dare I say?) about1957. They always came in spring and fall, lasted almost exactly 6 weeks, and I had ususally three per day. Most were 8, 9 and 10's. I was diagnosed with Horton's Cephalgia and given Tylenol #3 to use at the onset of a headache, which succeeded in giving me a stomach ache. Many trips to the hospital's ER, where I waited the usual 2-3 hours, and if I was lucky enough to be taken while I still had a headache, I was given oxygen and Demoral. Thats it folks. End of treatment. No chemical overload here. Just headaches for neigh onto 30 years.

Seven pregnancies--three living children. Headaches with each preg. ( before I even suspected I was preg.). Nursed the babies and when I weaned them to the bottle-headaches. These are in addition to the spring and fall episodes. Then in 1986, the hysterectomy. That darned "H" word.

Not a CH since I adjusted my testosterone level. OOPS! I'll be sorry about that statement. Oh well.
