Knowing the wiiiide range of the way CH attacks and having read so many accounts of meds that work for one person and just don't for another, I would never be so naive or careless enough to diagnose you or even advise you on specific meds....
But ...I can share my experience. That, as you know, is the strength of this site.
My present cycle is the wierdest yet for starting. Normally they arrive slowly and within a couple weeks are almost daily kicking my butt a couple times a day....But here I am over 1 and 1/2 months in and I'm still getting false precursers and have only had 13 CH's in that time.
The only change I've made is to get a mask for my O2, which has really been wonderful. I have taken only Midrin,a perscription painreliever, for years at the first precurser when in cycle. But I'm hesitating during this one cause they just aren't blossoming....go figger!
I continue all my bad habits, smoking, staying up late, eating and drinking anything I want, reading Drummers bad jokes, stressed at work and home, but this beast won't start his full attack...OK by me.
Sounds like your about to join those among us who have tried different stuff...that does or does not work. The choices you make are your own. You are in my prayers.
There have been quite a few nice overviews for those new to CH posted on this site from the ancient ones. I don't know where in the archives it is, but one from Gary sticks in my mind as having covered, rather nicely, a lot of bases.
Wish I could be more help.
Walk in the sunshine.
