We're going on week 6 here, his longest attack ever. I'm trying to get him to check back in with the doctor but he keeps thinking it will be over soon.

Even when the attacks aren't bad, he's still so TIRED. I guess that's normal. Must be the medications.

He talks a lot about being "tight" and "dry."

I have terrible fears there's something worse than the CH attacks going on, but all the symptoms are same as before, except now it's lasting longer.

He started these at 20 and would go 2 or more years without...now it seems to be about every two years...and like I said, I've never seem him like this.

He thinks he's at the end...from the msg board it sounds like they can go 2-3 mos. the longest? Yes?

He's taking Fiorcet (and Imitrex when it's really bad), and I just think there are better drugs out there for him on a daily basis.
