back in the dark ages...i.e. before CH was well known...when someone would ask me about "my headaches"...I use to lie and tell them I had migraines...the reason is that back then (high school...early 80's) I was told by several doctors that I did NOT have migraines...that I didnt fit the profile....
Anyways...I use to lie just because I wanted people to understand how painful this was...and I thought the word "migraine" was met with a respect for the pain, even though I did not have them.
Now its really kinda ironic...that all those years I wanted to give people a sense of how painful this thing is...I had actually been a member of a most rare exclusive club...there is no reason to lie about this pain anymore...this web page has alot to do with that, Dr. Goadsby and the other researchers do too.
PROUD TO BE PART OF THE FAMILY!!!!
See ya in Vegas......
