It is very depressing at times when you just can't get a handle on the headaches. Not able to prevent them well or stop them well. It's great that management is understanding.

Have you tried a mask for the oxygen? It makes all the difference in the world for me. Those canulas (sp?) up the nostrils just don't deliver enough oxygen to get the job done.

Keep working with your doctor till you find some combination that does the trick for a while. When that quits working look around till you find another.

Something I find helpful is going back through the archives and making notes on possible drugs/tricks to try. Then I do a site search here to find all on a topic that seems promising. Then sometimes I take the information to my doctor to try a new drug, or I try some new trick (like cold air or rapid exercise at onset of pain) and see if it works.

You probably have done all these sorts of things,too. But keep at it. God bless you and your family & Merry Christmas!
