After a long period of pain and people telling me I had sinus problems the medical profession finally concluded I suffered CH--that was 4 years ago with CH hitting me every year for about 4 weeks at a time,worst periods being about 2hrs into sleep.
Medication I used was----
If I felt a CH comming on I went onto Prednisolone and for the most if I took a 4 week course I could avoid CH on most occassions--my back up was a Medihaler oral spray,effectively ergotamine spray which again if taken early in the attack appeared to work.Spray was made by 3M and was easy to use.
Anyway down to the question--
2 years on and managed to avoid bad CH using Prednisolone I suffered flu 4 weeks ago which appears to have reminded my CH that they should have another go at me--off I go to the doctor get the Prednisolone and ask about the Medihaler for the BAD periods--not available in uk now,so I am left searching for other things after trying to convince doctor that tabs no good,far too slow.
I am now using Migranal Nasal spray-dihydroergotamine but do not find as good or fast and sometimes or most times it has not the same effect.
I am looking for a replacement for the bad periods that is fast--what do others use?.
