My husband has had CH in episodes for the past 51 years. He is 68 now and his last episode lasted for ten weeks and ended in October. Imitrex injections are his main relief. He also uses the pills and nasal spray, but they are slower to take effect. During the past cycle, he took so much imitrex it caused rebound headaches. His are always on the left side and his symptoms are identical to yours. Keep looking until you find a doctor who knows CH and who trusts you as an expert on the subject. Usually that kind of doctor will help you get whatever meds and treatments you will need. No one else in our family has either migraine or CH and we can't trace any in the generations ahead of him. We just hope and pray that through the efforts of the wonderful people on this board a cure will be found and no one else will have to experience what you have.
