I'm sorry, wish I could hug ya. I'm episodic.
I have them for 3-12 weeks and then they dissappear
for a year. I even went once for 3 years! Thought
they were gone. I'm on my second week right now.
Just have to hold my breath. Scared to death of
losing my job, my home. Oh well one more week of this
and the only thing I'll be worried about losing is
my sanity! Caffergot use to help me. I would take it
at the first signs and 15 minutes later it would be
aborted but at night It was always too late by the time
I wake up I'm too far gone and I just have to wait it out.
I've found that I follow a pattern though and if I take
two before I go to bed and set my clock to wake me
up half way thru the night, take another and go back to
sleep, I can usually make it thru the night. Yesterday
for the first time I had one in the day time and the
pills didn't help. I'm scared I'm only suppose to take
6 in a 24 hour period and I took 8, still didn't work.
I guess I'm going back to the doctor. Be a test rat agin.
Maybe they've come up with something since the last
time I was there. If there's anything I can do to help, let me
know. I would do anything to help anyone in our position.
