How you could manage to stay so calm after freedom from 21 years of chronic CH is beyond me, maybe still in a state of disbelief? : )
So very glad for you though. I did some research on Vioxx, and it appears to be for the most part a somewhat safe drug if taken appropriately and only under a knowledgable doctors advice.
Would I be right in assuming your other ailment was Osteoarthritis? (No need to answer that if you prefer not too), I was just wondering if it might make a difference in the drugs results to different users depending on their individual body needs. For instance, would it have any effect at all for an otherwise healthy episodic Clusterhead? Obviously, I don't expect you could answer these questions. But if you see your doctor often maybe he/she could? Or do they know you are using them for CH relief?
I still expect that if a cure is ever to be found for CH, it will come from the sufferers themselves. So every input, such as yours is very valuable. Any other info would be very helpful.
And once again, congrats! I hope and pray it lasts forever!
