I am new to this site. I have had CH for 3 years now, episodic. But this year is by far the worst. I used to be able to get by with a Zomig, but now it seems the only thing that works is Immitrex Sub-Cu. I tried the using 3mg only, like you say on this site, but it doesn't always work. I tried Stadol but it made me dizzy and didn't relieve my CH. I finally wnet to the Immitrex and threw up twice. It was awful. I have so many drugs I need a new drawer. My pockets bulge from the amount I have to carry with me. I finally found a doctor who understands though. He is giving me all sorts of prescriptions and my bills are through the roof.

I wake up three times a night, and have at least three more during the day. The only time I don't get a CH is when I am working out...I wonder ahs anyone else found this?

I am exhausted. I don't sleep and I am afraid to eat a lot of foods. I can only hope this is the peak of my series and it won't get worse. I used to live my life and get interupted by I live my life waiting for my headache to subside or waiting for the next one to come. I try desperately to keep a positive outlook on things, but some days I cannot.

I don't know if anyone will read this...but its nice to atleast to express this to others who understand.

Good luck, all!
