This is my first post here, although I've been watching on and off for a year or so. I've been getting these headaches for about 25 years.
Two nights ago I woke up with my first CH of the year. I decided to give the water treatment a try. I also made an appointment with my doctor, since he feels the key to minimizing the pain is to start treatment early.
This morning I saw my doctor and told him about the water treatment. I told him that I am giving it a try. He seemed a bit skeptical, but other than cautioning me not to go overboard, he didn't discourage me. However, he prescribed Verapimil, which I've had pretty good success with in the past. He told me that I should start on the Verapimil right away. I specifically asked if I might have a problem with drinking lots of water while taking Verapimil, and he felt that it wont be an issue.
Have any of you used this combination? Any idea whether the combination might be more effective or less effective than either treatment on its own?
BTW, thanks to those who have put this site together and contribute. It really does help!
