I am new to the boards, and have read quite a bit. I have noticed it appears that some peoples conditions a much worse than the one I have. I could not imagine suffering with these on a constant basis. When mine come, they are painfull, but I usually deal with them with a cold compress or hot air (hairdryer). I peak in my cycle with 2 at night and two in day time, then they taper of to none for long periods. One thing I have not read on the boards is what the hell they are, and what causes them. They are STRANGE aren't they. I had no idea other people suffered from them, or even what I had until about two weeks ago, when the worst bout I ever had forsed me back to the doctor, who finally diagnosed me right and sent me to a neurologist. I quit smoking (Inever really smoked much anyway), and this seams to be helping. It's funny when you have something that you think no one else has. Makes you think your a bit wierd. I just wanted to say, I'm glad I'm not alon, but I wish no one had to suffer with these, especially worse than I do. God bless.
