Hi all, this is my first post, although I've been an avid reader of the site for the past few weeks.
I have a question.. Having had CH's for the past 11 years every 2 to 4 years with an average cycle running 2 to 3 weeks and 2 attacks a day. I am just coming out (I think) of my most resent cycle which ran an intorable 6 weeks! (my sympothy to all chronic suffers). My question is, I'm currently since Friday, attack free, sort of.. By sort of I mean, I'm off all the meds (imitrex, zomig, etc.) haven't needed them. But since my last nasty attack on Friday night, I've had a psuedo attack non-stop. Meaning my head (or the right side of it where my CH centers), feels out of sorts, like an attack is coming. I have trouble mentally focusing, and there is some minor pain, but nothing significant not to mention I'm exhausted and could sleep forever (did most of the weekend). Has anyone else experienced anything like this. This is totally new to me.. I in the past have either had or did not have attacks, but nothing that lingered constantly like this. And if someone has experienced this, HOW LONG DID IT LAST. Still can't think straight enough and this is getting OLD! Duh!!
Needless to say any insite would be appreciated and your forgiveness of any spelling errors would be appreciated as well.
