Been there done that, some tricks help for the all day or night monster. Try an ice pack on the side of the pain and one on the back of the neck(the jell packs are good keep them in the freezer for emergency). You did not mention oxygen get set up with a tank it is covered by most health care , it works to lose the bends and can abort one if you catch it in time. Hot water-cold water, try putting your wrist under the faucet keep going back and forth with the hot and cold and take deep breaths of air like you are trying to hyperventilate. Stick your face in an air conditioner, car or other, breathe it in. Jumping jacks when it first comes on you may abort it. Try the chiro for 2-3 visits I have felt it helps some years but they try to get you there twice a week forever, if it helps great if not going longer will not cure you. Take vitamin b2 riboflavin if you find it or B complex that has a good dose of B2. Magnesium seems to help me also.Remember the triggers booze and no sleep, if he smokes cut down as much as possible do not try to quit now it puts the body in a shaky state same for coffee go to decafe , same for soda decafe. Lastly , Amerge is good, but if it ain't working get back to the Dr. go to the next drug either sansert or veraprimil. Next to last I have used imitrex and amerge in the same day and I am still here, I just tell my wife hey check on me make sure I am still breathing, the pain today is worse than what can happen tonight. Good luck.
