I'm sorry for your CH, and I believe you have, but let me explain some points:
-this is not properly a support group message board. this is a message board where the 95% of us ARE sufferers. There is a big difference: a support group can help the sufferer as the best it can, here we help eachother. And here we can accept or not (is a free choice for us all) some doubts, some lies, some dirty kiddings. A support group is generally like a "cold" phone call to an ER. Here we can, want and have to help eachother as a family.
And in all families there are some person that are more compassionate, other more prepared in medicine, other more like jokes, other can have some "allergies" to the word migraine.
And.... thanks to the helpers and no thanks to the skeptics.... is not (in my opinion) a good start point here or anywhere: you got help, and meanwhile, you have to accept other doubts: the best way to convince the skeptics is to give a complete anamnesys with your symptoms. Not a fee to "enter the board", but mainly to let us know how we can help and share tips with you.
My doc was skeptic for about 4 years about my CH, my first wife and the most of my friends/colleagues too!
Please accept this from an italian that don't knows english well, but knows the Beast from about 23 years.
Ciao and Pain Free Days and Nights
