before, when Ken was having the CH on the right side, his pupil DID dialate. They decided this time to go to the left side (done warped the right side i reckon) and his pupil doesn't dialate.
Go figure!
He gets all the rest of it, just no dialation of the pupil.
Before, he ALWAYS used an ice pack on the head pulse and on his jugular vein. Now, he can't even stand to touch it. It hurts too much. He said the ice pack felt like a 50 lb. weight on his head. (its a light weight soft ice pack)

But like Ken says, "I know it's a @#@##^$%$&*&E^%$&%@##$^ Cluster"

He goes back to work tomorrow. The plant doc said his BP was 170/95 so he should be fine.
(I'd like to choke her. I think they just don't want him off anymore.)

He's already dreading it. Luckily, the guys he works with know his condition, and when a headache hits, he heads for the "cool, dark room" and NO ONE bothers him.

I feel for him though. I think it almost embarresses him to have one anywhere else but home.
