HI... these are mine and i read this one here.
I use a medium heat blow dryer on the area... it DOES
help the pain. Soothing! Then.... every now and then i
put it on regular heat... but it tends to burn. Too bad
you can't take an oxygen tank via plane. Imitrex can affect
your heart ... and you can only take so much imitrex every
so often. It tends to build up. I know cause three years
ago i was admitted for signs of a heartattack/ stroke due
due too much imitrex. And you thought CH were scary.
Also.. i just started this. I did it a year ago and it did help.
IF YOU CAN GET A PRESCRIPTION: Take Prozac... 40 mg preferred.
Within a blessed week, your pain will be so much less if not gone.
Problem, doc won't prescribe it simply for the CH's. You have to
have a depression problem. I tend to get one... a serious one...
when CH's enter my life and are prolonged. Sad, can't find joy,
fear, zest for life gone.... Even not wanting to live any longer.
And's CH's, i've been told, tend to get suicidal... after prolonged
battles because this is all affecting the hypothammulus. Whatever,
if you can get some... even 20 mg... get it.
Other than that... verapamil.. but remember you have to be monitored
on it... it slows your heart rate down... makes you feel more tired and
weeker. This isn't a good time to go out of town. You really should
see if you can avoid it. However, go invest in a blow dryer with two
heat ... low heat, medium heat.. and regular heat. And the adaptor so
you can plug it in Europe. God Bless.
Oh yeah, pound the water... it did seem to help although it's so hard
to drink two gallons of water every day. Our bodies hydrated causes les
There are also imitrex pills, by the way.. much easier than shots.
But, just as lethal. Ask questions on maximum dosages...
