Good to hear someone feels the same way I do.
The Imitrex is the only thing that works for me also and I am having about 6 headaches a day now. Oxygen will take a couple away but they usually come back within the hour. I have had these headaches for 30 years now. Mine started when I was 12. I have tried everything also and was so relieved to have the Imitrex but also worry about using so much. People do make you feel like you are a junkie and I hate that it is so expensive. Luckily our insurance covers it but you wonder how long that will last. I am in a cluster now that has been going STRONG since the middle of September and I too am shaking and scared. I hope it ends soon. Mine usually last about 3 months. I've got a call in to my Doctor to see if I can take some more Prednisone. It usually knocks them out for a couple days so I can get some sleep. I'm so depressed now. Hope you are rid of yours soon. I feel very sorry for you.
