Thanks, John. After reading most of the postings in this message board i have decieded to talk to my doctor about trying the Lithium and Verapamil preventative treatment. Have you tried this?
As for your question about the doctors. I am new to the area and have been going to a clinic here. Unfortunately, my insurance is PPO so my choice of dr.s is limited. I have also decided to try for the O2 treatment, if my insurance company will let me. I have been in the pharmacy 4 times in the past 2 weeks, each time to get Imitrex, and I fear that I may not be able to get anymore prescriptions. I wrote down all the meds in here that people have tried and had some success with and I am going to take them to the doctor and ask her about them. I tried to call a neurologist and talk to him, but he is in Philadelphia for God knows how long, but I still need a referral.
Thanks for the quick response. I will keep you all posted.
