I hereby post under my full name as I have nothing to hide. As a few CH sufferers
are aware, I spent 5 days and 4 nights with a headache specialist in Johannesburg
undergoing tests. As a CH sufferer for +- 25 yrs I was a bit apprehensive, but was
prepared to try anything. Without any surgery and on the 4th day I was CH free. It
is difficult to explain what procedures were followed as I am not at all familiar with
the medical terms. Since Monday morning 21/4 I have been CH free. The only
other conclusion I can come to (which I feel is highly unlikely, as I still had slight
shadows until yesterday), is that I went out of the cycle during the procedures. To
me this is a huge breakthrough for all of us, and it would be great if just one other
South African sufferer could do the same to prove their theory beyond doubt.
At the same time I want to publicly thank Dr Shevel, his son Daniel and wife, Shirley,
for accommodating me during this period. What fantastically wonderful and
understanding people. They can be contacted at

Once again my sincere gratitude to Dr Shevel and his family.
