I have been suffering with these headaches for over 2o years. They last from two to three weeks. Every few days at first then progressing to every day. At the end of the cycle they are less severe. I don't get another headache for 12 to 18 months. Imitrex does not work. I have been given pain killers with some effect. However, effect is nausea and stomach ache. The headaches start with nasal congestion on the right side of my face. Then the intense pain begins. The right side of my neck is also affected. It feels like a stiff board. At times I feel as if a dagger is going thru my eye and out the back of my neck. Sometime my eye waters and and I can't breath out of my right nostral. The headaches last from 1 to five hours. Any suggestions for relief????
