I have a couple of questions:
1. Has anyone here tried cayanne pepper for CH's? If so did it help or not, how were you taking it and in what amounts?
2. Are there any pain killers for moderate to severe pain that do not contain asprin that ya'll know of? (i'm using percodan and it's causing rebounds, my doc seems to do better when I suggest treatments.)
3. At what quantity does asprin move from being ok to potentially toxic?
4. I'm on a 2 week taper pack of methylprednisolone and it's not doing anything; does anyone know, if I just stop taking it, am I asking for problems?
I know ya'll aren't doctors, but I appreciate learning from the experinces of others, esp. because my nurologist doesn't seem to have time to really work w/me and the nurses at her office don't seem to know the difference between a migraine and CH! (One of them actually tried to convince me that I should call when I get a headache so that they could give me a steriod shot to abort the headache. This was after I explained to her that I got about 4 headaches a day. When I told her that the headaches were ussually over in 3-6 hours, she couldn't seem to understand why I didn't just wait for them to go away and continue on w/my life! Arrggh!
