sounds like your coming to the end... for me.. i have
those too now and i'm now even lower than that.
I have it more at night but it never goes into a 10. Kinda sticks
at a one or two. But i know, it's annoying pinchy feeling and your not
sure if it's going to get worse. I usually drink a good starbucks coffee
at this point and the caffene rush (i get mine i little finer crushed so
i get a stronger caffene dosage ... starbucks is great!) and then
it clears this nagging pain up. I got shots in my brain, octi-blockers, and
i'll do them again. Are you taking any meds? like verapamil? keep us posted on
the shadows, but be careful not to do what i did and get it for another cycle. I had
a beer at the end of my first cycle...cause i only had shadows...and BAM... it came back!
now... i just stick to my Breakfast Blend Super Fine chopped Starbucks.

good luck ....

oh, someone told me about a blowdryer on warm, and i can get rid of my shadows with that too.
Just use it on the area, or take a hot shower... it helps the pain of shadows. That and at this
point, exedrin migrane pills might be the only little "push" you need.

easier than the ch's for sure!
