I went to Diamond a year ago in February. My first visit to see a Dr. George Urban. He immediately hospitalized me in the Diamond Headache Hospital Unit which is in Columbus Hospital just around the corner from their offices. They started me on Histamine Desensitization treatment they use to stop ch's. Within 3 days my ch's were gone. This treatment is a regimine of 21 IV bags of the histamine given over several weeks. The problem is my headache free period only lasted 1 month and I suffered other complications. A blood clot in my jugular clavical vein due to the pic line they put in to give me the histamine treatment. They were knowledgeable but I won't go back up there because of the blood clot incident. I kept telling them something was wrong (severe burning in my neck and arm) and they wouldn't take me seriously. That attitude from docs always pisses me off. I met two men while I was there with ch's and they experienced relief too but I don't know for how long. Feel free to email me if you want more info about the treatment. Wishing you good days! Nina
