Just curious if anyone else has such intense jaw and tooth pain on the affected side during a CH. It seems that when a 9 or 10 is working me, I produce so much saliva that I have to be near a sink, or have some place to spit during the worst part of the episode. My jaw and teeth actually hurt for a couple of hours after a majorCH.
Whats next after prednisone? Has anyone else been trying fioricet to stop at the beginning of a CH? I'm looking for suggestions on meds. Drinking lots of water, knocked out the alcahol(which really sucks because i love to drink and live in a resort party town) and have tried the tobasco treatment a couple of times with limited success. I'm still in partial denial that i have actually got these damn headaches back after 16 years but with every headache the denial is turning more into the reality of hell again. Oh well. As they say---- when life throws you lemons , make lemonade. I just havent figured out what to do with CH's yet. By the way, does everybody else narrorate their ch's while dancing as if dictating to someone who's taking notes on the direction and path of pain? I think it's because I can think of nothing else during a ch and my internal dialouge just seems to take over with a discussion of paths of pain. Drives me nuts sometimes. Enough venting. loggin later.
