Life was simple when I was a kid, the country doctor would handle everything, now our clinic has a zillion departments, even a pain management group, I was sent there shortly after my accident they had a woman doctor, she was funny, she was reading my chart and said, maybe I should just knock you out and put you out of your misery. she ended up giving me a TEMS unit so I could also the enyoy the pleasure of getting electrical shocks on top of it.

When I got my Botox shots, I found a phamplet on Bells Palsy that explained yet a different branch of medicine that I never heard of that dealth with the huge number of nerves in the head including the ear canal, it wasn't neuro, can't find that phamplet, but will get another on my next visit, but at the time this branch seemed the most logical for the treatment of CH's.

I question whether neuros, ENT's or the pysch department should treat CH's, can only say over the years have been bounced back and forth, gives a guy the feeling that it is easier to pass the buck then to cure the problem.
