I think someone with the right constitution who was desperate enough could type. I personally couldn't do it over about a 6 or so, but I did once drive my sports car with summer tires at night, in the midst of a Canadian winter storm, for half an hour in the grip of a 9 on the Kip scale.
It's amazing I didn't kill myself or anyone else. Why would I do such a lunatic thing? To get to the pharmacy to pick up my Imitrex.
Y'all should of seen the reactions of the folks at the pickup counter... I guess I looked like death walking. The pharmacist paled right out, and said, "Oh, you poor thing! You look like you're really hurting!" She handed me my packet of pills and a cup of water, and I snarfed one down then and there, then fled to my car and huddled in agony with the windows wide open to let in as much cold as possible.
As I recall, it took over an hour for the pill to kick in. Sigh.
Anyway... my point is that if I, king of the wimps, can DRIVE while in the grip of the beast, I can believe that someone could type on a keyboard. As we have said over and over, individuals deal with the pain in different ways.
Holly's ability to type while in the middle of an attack does NOT mean that she doesn't have CH.
