One dentist of mine had a wife with severe head pain and a receptionist with horrible migraine - so he knew the name of a good neuro and got me an appointment. That was after he saw that
my head pain was not caused by any current problems with teeth or gums.

The day I had a rountine filling I was in cycle. I told him I could not let my head touch the headrest if a CH attack started while I wasin the chair.

I was okay until almost the finish; then I felt an attack coming on. He had no coffee in his office, so he asked if I wanted to try extra shots of lidocaine in the gum area that hurt. Since I was numb anyway in that area I said okay. But 3 or 4 additional shots did not ease the pain in my gum or in my head, of course. The shots did not hurt, but the attack worsened with time, and I could only pay my bill and rush to my car to turn on the heater as hot as it would go.

It is not unheard of to have 10 years painfree between cycles according to one article I read. It sounds crazy, but apparently it happens.And unfortunately those who have not had a cycle for a few years say the CH comes back with a real vengeance.

If George does have CH maybe he will have a short cycle and be free of pain for many years. I hope so.
