Dave's cycles usually run 8-10-12 weeks. Last time(2 years ago) he went 7 months but prior to that cycle he injured his neck on a trampoline (big goof ball) He wasnt due for his cycle til Nov or so of that year it Struck late in August and wasnt finally gone until like April. That was his worse, ever. could you have maybe done something that triggered it sooner. Or are you doing things that are causing it to linger...Last time Dave was stubborn about alcohol. He likes his beer and an occasional cocktail. He realized early on this time, that the CH lasted longer and didn't respond to any meds if he drank, so he gave up booze all together mid cycle. This cycle was the most tollerable & lasted 10 weeks. He used neurontin and was faithful to it 3 times a day as a prevent, also used imatrex pills to prevent before bed I dont think they recommend that but it worked for him. The nasal spray also helped the 10's he hates needles. Just my opinion here. Good Luck I'll be prayin its over soon for you!!!! Ree
