Hello all!! Well--it's just a matter of time now. I've just gotten my third "shadow", which means I am about three weeks away. I am trying to get referal to a world renowned specialist in my area, but with an HMO,it doesn't look all that promising. I have a doctor who cares and tries very hard, but he just isn't a specialist. I think that is what we CH's need, someone who has a plan of attack from the get-go. A doctor that knows more than we do. As of right now, my doctor is still trying to catch up to what I know about these demons. I live in the Philadelphia area, and for the hockey fans, Eric Lindros was recently treated with intravenous steroids for concussion related headaches. I have been treated with steroids in the past, with some success. The success was only temporary, however, and the treatments had to stop because of fear of addiction. I think that with an increase of dosage, and the fact that it would be intravenous, it may be able to stop the cycle dead in it's tracks. Well I have taken enough space here. I will keep everyone posted. Feel free to e-mail me.
