I had thought that I was out of my cycle. That lasted two days and now I am back to 2 headaches a day, one at around 10 P.M. and one after I go to sleep (about 1.5 hrs after). I am taking percocet, but it doesn't help. I have found that Excedrin Migrane helps, but it takes about 20-25 mins to kill the attack which is an 8 or 9 on the Kip scale. Last night at 2:00 AM, it was a 9!!!

I have taken to look at the clock and watch the 20-25 mins pass while I try not to wake my wife. I am tired and depressed at this point, but have an appointment with a neurologist/headache specialist next week.

Does any one know what Meds I should ask for?

Prednisone used to end the cycle, but it did not work for this cycle which has been going since Feb. I think my wife is starting to understand the pain and we have a 2 month old daughter that I wish I could help more with. However, with the lack of sleep, depression (to some degree) I know I am not helping as much as I should. AOh well, all in all I am lucky, just CANT WAIT TO GO TO BED TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
