Sorry to hear you're in so much pain. Whether it's CH or anything else, pain is no picnic.
Whilst there are many here who can advise you about meds (i don't take any....Im no hero its just my doc wont let me), I have to agree that this cycle is the worst I've had to date.
I usually have the odd attack through the summer and my cycle generally begins in ernest about early to mid October. It usually ends around late March to early to April. This time however, it started early September and only seems to be waning in the past 2 weeks. The irony is that my migraine attacks ceased about a couple of months before my ch started (about 4.5 years ago), they have now started up again, but compared to the ch I have to say I dont really have too much of a problem with them!! LOL
It does sound to me as though it IS ch, but as I say there are others here (sufferers far longer than I think anyone should have to put up with pain like that - over 20-30+ years in a lot of cases)who would be able to advise you more than I ever could. They're a good bunch of people. I have better friends here than I do where I live...though whether that's a more telling statement about me or them, I couldn't tell you!!!! :O)
If you ever want someone to talk to, about anything, then just drop me a line! I work from home so am always around my pc. I check here through the day and check my e-mail hourly. What can I say, I have no life!!!! LOL
Hope you find some peace soon.
Take care and God bless,
