Welcome to Sorry you to hear you have to deal with the "horrible beast". We are all willing to help in any that we can. There is someone here to cover every angle { drugs, accupuncture, self-help, you name it) we will try to help.
When I first started getting c/h's, I put a hot compress, as hot as I could stand it, over my temple and eye. A hot shower helped me too. It didn't abort the h/a but it took the edge off the pain. Cold, or ice packs works too, for some sufferers. Now, I rely completely on Imitrex injections ( 1/3 dose or 2 mg) I use no preventative meds at all( they make too groggy ) Ibuprophen gets rid of lingering shadows for me. Have you tried injectable Imitrex?
Feel free to ask any questons, we are here for you. :-) Frank
