I was here last year about the same time, and sadly back again.(Would like to believe these episodes will
disappear). This will be my 4th year as a clusterhead.
Each year has gotten worse. After last years bout, I can't imgaine they could get worse than that. Maybe only lasting for a longer duration could be worse. It has started about 2 weeks earlier than last year tho.
I was wondering about warning signs. I've come to realize that serious neck pain and loss of ability to sleep seem to always present themselves starting a couple of weeks before I start climbing the KIP scale.
(Which would explain why I'm up now)
Do most of you get these same symptons ahead of time?
It's been a year, and I feel for the chronic sufferers....but....I'm really not ready to go through this for another 6 weeks or so again. This year will try Imitrex pills. Although I don't want to take any until I hit at least Kip7. Last year, all the different drugs only made me sick on top of the pain,
so will fight with my own strenghts as long as possible. Now I'm rambling...can't sleep,forgive me :)
At about level 6 now.
