This is very interesting. It makes me think of auto-immune diseases where inflammation is rampant and pain can be awful over many parts of the body.
Prednisone is the only drug I know of to cure Temporal Arteritis and prevent blindness. But megadoses of that medicine are used over a long period of time. Most of us don't want to take prednisone because there are so many adverse side effects. But is it effective against the "inflammation" of CH? Is that why it helps some people with CH?
It helps to know there are other researchers working on the problem. If these doctors are correct, they need to discover how to avoid letting the inflammation occur at all. Imagine PFNAD for all!!!
