The neurologist here can't even treat migraines!!! much less CH...and with my physical health being what it is ...makes it next to IMPOSSIBLE to go anywhere within the state of N.D. much less out of state for treatment... I have seen all the neurologists in town...When you tell them that your face is drooping and eyes watering and have a red hot poker coming out our eye etc..they look at you like you are "nuts"...You can't have Ch ...that is only a man's disease and that is "Rare"...What a JOKE...

When I had the severely herniated disks with the disks wrapped around the nerves and couldn't walk.. (in my low back)...I was told I should just have sex at least once a day and then my problem would resolve itself...Thank God for my rehab doc..who knew that they were full of shit and it wasn't in my head..Unfortunately he doesn't treat Ch or any headaches...But is very sympathetic about the situation.

That is the mentality in N.D. Like I said The doc's here are off the Mayflower and about 20 years behind every where else in treatments etc...

So I am just doing what I know to do to survive this..and like I said any suggestions are helpful... Thanks for letting me vent tonight..It just pisses me off that this town's doc's are about a joke and then some...
