Thanks for posting your coping techniques. My husband has learned that he can get through an attack much quicker if he forces himself to stay calm and focus on the pain and getting rid of it. There is a LOT to be said for this method. It has been very hard for him to learn this technique but he's done very well at it. Sometimes it helps him if I can rub his neck and shoulders to keep him calm, but I let him ask me and I don't take offense when he tells me to stop. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work and he tries something else to get through it.
He will sometimes also make himself sneeze to relieve some of the sinus pressure.
Thanks again for sharing.
