generalization. When you said, and I quote "You see, migraine med's don't help the majority of ch sufferers", I couldn't help but stick my big nose in, because it is a fact, that a majority (as in imitrex) do help CH'ers. Please don't think of me as biased, I do believe CH pain is much more terrible than migraine, but all of the research and drugs that have been made for migraines, has most certainly been a benefit to us CH'ers. Let me say, that I do understand your point. They are separate diseases (?), and we do still need to get our word out more broadly. I agree with that wholeheartedly. I also know how badly migrainer's can suffer too. I watched my mom get beaten down for 26 years because of awful, ruthless migraines. Fortunately for me, my clusters only come once a year for 4-6 weeks, her migraines came once a week, and made her bed ridden for 2-3 days in a row.
