Hi folks, A CH sufferer for 17 years, in cycle now for week 8. It sucks. Thankfully my insurance co. covers up to two I shots per day. My pharmacist is smiling. Anyway, just wanted to share an experience and see what you guys think. I was on a Motorcycle fun run on Saturday, while at the last stop I started to get the shawdowing and thought I better hit the 25 mile trip home before I get hit bad. By the time I hit mile 5 I was at a pain level of 7-8, ready to pull over at the next available spot to take a shot and relax for 20. I had to continue on though, and as suddenly as the headache came on--it left. Totally. by the time I got home, no shadows, no CH. This has never happened in 17 years that a CH aborted itself without meds. Maybe we all need a whole head vibrator. That's all that I could think of was the reason, my littel 883 sportster vibrates my whole body. Any thoughts on this? I am thinking that I should just jump on the bike when the shadowing starts up...!!! Also, does anyone have any good info on the I shots and rebound effects. Since Imitrex my cycles seem to have doubled in length. I am reducing the shot by half when I use it so one vile lasts for two CH;s but I am up to 4 CH's a day. thoughts?? Help anyone?
