I have been a CH sufferer for 6 years. I am now 40 with a wonderful wife of 15 years and two boys in there teens. The CH headaches last for 2 months every 2 years and I have 2-4 of these attacks every day. I know that you understand the pain as a CH sufferer but nobody else does. I miss work because of these and feel that my co-workers have lost confidence in my abilities. I am scared to leave home to have a night on the town because the beast may raise its ugly head once again. It's embarrassing to leave a friends home or a resturant because you cant stand the pain anylonger. The embarrassment I have when I dance with the Demon while my family listen in horror to the moans and growns while I wait for the Imitrex to take effect that
removes the pain for another 6 hours. The concern in the eyes of my wife and dispare when she knows that she cannot help. It has been 10 weeks with these feelings,
hopefully only another couple to go to take my life off hold and back to normal. I appriciate having the opportunity to share this with other CH sufferers and wish all the best to you.
