I have been a sufferer for the past four years and most of that time I had to suffer alone. My wife of the past two years has seen me go through a somewhat mild season then the past year HELL came knocking for 4 1/2 months. My wife, also like yourself, has been very frustrated that she cannot do anything while these are going on. There is nothing she can do but be there and thats enough. I don't want her to see the pain because it hurts her also, so I try to go outside or another room while the beast visits. I'm sure your other half feels the same. All you can do is love and be there for him and I'm sure he doesn't expect anything else because thats enough. Believe me when the attack hits all concentration is focused on the pain ending and eventually it will. Advise him to visit our group on the board, there is a tremendous amount of loving and caring people here. Wishing many painfree days ahead for you both.
