I get the CH every Fall and the cycle lasts 3-4 months for me. But even when I'm out of cycle I still get shadows and neuralgia in my face. This last Fall I started eary like you for some reason.
Thats when I decided to try the acupunture. The cycle was shorter but still shadows and neuralgia
and a headacy feeling almost every day. Piper could tell you she gets like this too. Out of cycle but that headacy feeling like its just lingering around. I always wonder why its always
in the Fall and always on the right side. Thank
God for that, I couln't imagine what both sides
woudl be like. The pregnancy question you asked
was interesting. I started the CH's after my oldest kids were born but I found out I was pregnant at 41. I delivered Anna in July and that
Fall was the first Fall I didn't have a cycle.But
it made up for lost time because the next Fall was
one of the worst for me. The summer months are
the best for me. I live in N. E. and the Fall is
beautiful here but for me, I dread it cause I know
that the CH's are just around the corner. I plan
on preparing myself this year by starting weekly
session with acupunture in August. I'm hoping it
will shorten the cycle again. I'd like to hear from other women about the pregnacy thing. I know
women that said their migraines went away during
pregancy too. Maybe there is a hormone link to this after all.
