Well, I went to my doc at the beginning of the week. He took one look at me and knew I was going thru hell again. So, he threw me in Barnes hospital in St Louis, giving me DHE-45 IV treatments every 8 hours to try and break the cycle. Just got out, and am one sore pincushion!!!
The new presript approach to try and knock the demon out: Zomig (trying it again), and Atenolol for a prophylaxis (anyone else tried this?). When the doc came in my room yesterday to see how I was, I had just spent my first 7 hours painfree in awhile. He did something that blew me away - gave me a high five.

Some of you know the hell I have been through (especially with docs.) Some of you are still there. Take it from me, Mr. Discouraged - KEEP LOOKING UNTIL YOU FIND A DOC THAT IS COMPASSIONATE, UNDERSTANDS CH, AND KNOWS HOW TO TREAT THEM!!! It has taken me 7 tries - but have finally found a doc I am happy with.

Now, only time will tell if this did the trick, but if not - at least I have a new strategy - instead of just ridi
