It is terrific you have found something that works in dealing with CH. Though this is NOT a cure, it is merely an effective treatment. It has been noted on this board that many many people try many different things, and what works for one person will not work for another. Take Imitrex - for example, it helps a great deal of CHheads, but I cannot use it.
It sets off alarms when someone posts "I've got the cure." Probably because it stirs up false hope in alot of people, and then sends them plummeling down on thier nose when it doesn't work.
Hmmmmm. Wait - that sounds like my life: False hope, plummeling down, coming to reality, landing face first in a world of shit. Yep, thats my life.
So, in the future do not say "Accupuncture is a CURE" - instead, say "Accuptuncture is an effective treatment."
Don't take me wrong Jackie, not coming down on you - I just feel like crawling under a rock and hoping someone steps on it.
