Nowhere Todd. I wasn't making
any reference to you diagnosing me (which you didn't).
I diagnosed myself, and contrary to what the
doc told me. He is wrong. I am right.
I have migraines, my diagnosis. It seems
that CH sufferers may not be affected
by light, or noise, or foods. I am. This seems to
point at the strong possibility that I am not a CH sufferer. The
final proof came with the sensitivity to light, or
lack thereof in CH'ers. Doctor was wrong. Again,
I am so relieved (specially after the horror experiences
that people report with CH). Believe me, my migraines
are every bit as painful as any CH. Mine happen at
night, 2 times, and during the day 2 to 6 times during cycle.
Sometimes, at cycle's peak, it is just one solid
HA for 4 or 5 days in a row, excruciating, debilitating,
incapacitating, and it doesn't go away. A few years back
I took so many drugs for the peak period that I ended up
with a perforated ulcer. The doc thought I had the flu, lol.
So, he kept giving me stronger antibiotics, which made the hole
bigger. After lossing 48 lbs another doc came up and said...hmmm...
I think that you actually have an ulcer...tests prooved positive.
So much for docs, right? At least the cure for migraines, or CH for
that matter isn't a barium enema 6 times/day.
