I suffered for years in the military with what I was told were sinus headaches. I think many of you know the story, enough sudafed to lower the water table in Lake Michigan. When I just couldn't take the pain any more and even considered using a coat-hanger to releave the pressure (don't ask). I was scheduled to get my nose re-broken (the first was with the help of a hockey stick). During the examination the doctor told me my sinus' were fine, just lay off the sudafed. He sent me to the neurologist. My records and I were "reviewed" and I learned a new term "cluster migrane". Over the years I have multiple near seizure episodes and twice have gone into "migrane shock". Tired of the military perscribed narcotics, I asked my neighborhood drugist for help. Realize at this point I had seen over a dozen specialists. He recomended Orudus (ketoprofin) it was new as an over the counter and he had heard good things. I have been taking it for the last 5 years at the onset of the headache and the results are nothing short of amazing. Two right at the onset will generally stop the pain if not I take 2 more about 30 minutes later. I fell into the "I don't have cluster migranes anymore" trap on a gold panning trip in California and had to hike 12 miles out to get to my truck so I could get some Orudus. It helped me and I'll pray it works for all who read this, hell... I'll be delerious if one person of responds with the same results. I am not a doctor and do not know if it will react with any perscribed or even over the counter meds, please check first! I do know... DO NOT TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH!!!
