Hi Everybody!

I've been away for most of the past 2 YEARS thanks to pain freedom! But now I'm back to the nightly cycle. Oxygen seems to be a little less effective this time around. This is my first cycle where they come AFTER I go to sleep. I am a VERY heavy sleeper, so I don't wake up till it's really bad.

I have Imitrex nasal spray, but I've only used it once. It killed the headache, but I literally gagged for a half hour on the foul taste dripping down my throat! Small price to pay. Can somebody who's used both let me know the pros and cons of nasal vs needle? I have good insurance, so I pay $10 copay regardless. Are the shots better? Do they work faster? I think I'd rather stick myself with a rusty nail than taste that nasty nasal spray again, although anything is better than the screaming pain. Any comments are welcome and appreciated!
