I have been suffering from ch's for only the last four months. I was diagnosed about 2 months ago by a neurologist. i am now currently taking imitrex nasal in 20mg doses. the imitrex seems to work fairly well for mild and moderate ch's but for the real bad ones one dose dosen't seem to do all that much. I haven't tried more than one since my doc. said that i should only take one or two doses a day,and my insurance will only pay for 6 every 10 days. my ch pattern stared slow with one ha every other day then stepped up to one per day then around thaksgiving to two or more per day. christmas was terrable one of the worst for pain (and in front of the family). then they fairly quickly dissiapated down to 0 ha on the 2nd of jan.
now they seen to be starting back up again. last week I was having about one evety day friday it was up to 2 and yesterday I also had 2. It is destroying my life I can't seep, work won't let me use machinery, not at work much anyway. now my doctor has called DMV and is having my license revoked on 1 feb.
I feel like my life is just collapsing like a house of cards in a wind storm. no one seems to be able to do any thing for me.
my question is how can i keep my drivers license since my nero. seems to think i am a danger to everyboy?
also how do i inform the people around me of what I apparantly have without semming like a whiner but also without alarming anybody?
one more,is there a bank that will offer low intrest loan rates to ch suffers so that they can keep their home and not be forced to live on the street?
