Pre-CH daytime wierdness...

I haven't had a CH in the daytime in a while, but from what I recall...

Nighttime CHs are better. You just awaken because of the PAIN. Most likely you're at home, or someplace that you can get to what you need.

My daytime experience is as follows:
I get an annoying numbness... maybe a start to feel hot followed by chills, and a tennis match ensues between the two.

Hyper-sensitivity kicks in - I can hear every key on every keyboard in the immediate area that's being pushed - I can hear every conversation simultaneously - I can smell every odor - prefume, B.O., etc. I can't block any of it out. I'm going MAD!!!

At this point, I drop whatever I'm doing and announce that I'm going home. Everyone sees that I've become a ghostly white, and the "way" that I say it leaves no room for question or arguement (a sort of primeval snarl, half statement to my coworkers, half command to myself).

I now have about 30 minutes to get home, before the ATTACK occurs.

Again, it's been a while since this has happened - Since I'm newly diagnosed (finally!!!) and am catching up on symptoms, I was just wondering if anyone had also experienced the type of "hyper sensitivity" I mentioned above.
