Today my husband saw a neurologist who diagnosed CH, which is what we've been pretty sure of since finding this site. All I can say is, thank God for this website!!! :)

After being mis-diagnosed with a sinus infection, etc., who knows what mistreatments he'd still be undergoing if you guys weren't here with so much info and help. I'm sure we'd still be searching for an answer and seeing the wrong kind of Drs.

Thankfully, the HA's haven't been too intense lately and the Dr. thinks he's probably nearing the end of the cycle, but he still has a constricted pupil and droopy eye.

He has to have an EEG and an MRI but the Dr. seems pretty sure about the CH. He prescribed prednizone, verapamil (80 mg 2x per day) and imetrix. The prednizone dosage is 24 mg today, phasing down over 6 days. Any thoughts about the possible side effects?
