HI Michel
My wife Denise has had CH for 20 yrs now.She went misdiagnosed for 10 of those.You will find that most doctors know less about this condition than most people on this site do.Our experience has been this Denise has been on countless meds over the years with no relief.We would usually end up going to the ER for a shot of demerol.Thats the only thing that would help .Imatrex however was the first treatment that helps!These are a self injection kit that has a device that looks basicly like a large pen.You load a small cartridge in it .It is spring loaded.You hold it against your skin and push a button.It gives you a shot through a small needle.For denise the relief is very fast within 5min.Unfortunately they are expensive.Talk to your doctor they can be hard on your heart but so are ch.Chech out the imatrex tips on the home page to the left.HANG IN THERE !WE ARE WITH YOU>
