I love this site. Nice to see others describe my HELL for me. I hate the healthcare people( the ER think your looking for drugs when I'm really begging for an end to all this. I've sufered 20 years now and now 35 years old. I am currently suffering a bout since last September. This is by far much longer than usual as the usual spell lasts about 8 to 10 weeks. Imitrex doesn't work and neither does prednisone. The only thing that has worked is oxygen and that works 90% of the time but the ones it won't work for are the ones that make me want to jump out a window. I am going in for a sleep study Sunday night as doctors believe that I may have a sleep disorder that causes me to not breathe properly during my sleep. This is possible but I don't see how that would explain the early afternoon headaches. I am getting to a point of intolerance and being on edge due to the lack of sleep that I'm affraid if I get another attack in public I might hurt somebody. Are there any studies or new treatments that I may apply to be a part of. I'm going out of my mind. Hope everybody else finds relief in the near future.
