Funny how different doctors explain how and why different stuff works. My doctor claims that while they don't understand the pain mechanism exactly, they agree that you have to STOP the mechanism, or ride out the pain. He says the cafergot would stop the ch, but it takes 10 to 15 minutes to absorb it and put it to work. As we know, that's too late, the beast is loose. So he claims the o2 holds the monster at bay until the cafergot can fence him in! Not sure how accurate that story is but danged if it don't work more often then not. My doctor also said that the study of headaches can still be compared to the ten blind men touching an elephant and describing what they feel!!!!! But still we hope.
