Can someone give me some advice.... I believe that I have been suffering from CH since I have been about 14 or 15. It was only diagnosed as CH three years ago. (Do doctors really have such a lack of knowledge of the condotion?)

Since then I have had problems getting any effective treatment. Most doctors treat it as a migraine (Imitrix Nasal Spray, Maltrax, and Zomig). These medications have absolutely no effect - or if they do, they are only kicking in when the CH would probably have dissipated al by itself (1-2 hours later). Recently I have been prescribed an anti-depressant. Is this common?

Confused, alone, and missunderstood.....
