I tried an ice-pack last week and thought my head would explode. After reading your post about the "cold spot" I tried the other extreme. My wife made up a hot water bottle and I tried it with a shadow left over from an earlier CH. The bottle was really hot so I could only hold it on my head for a few seconds at a time, but the pain went away immediately and stayed away for several minutes. Once the bottle cooled down to merely hot, I was able to use it constantly and the pain again went away. I haven't tried this yet for a full blown CH, but I am hopeful that it will help.
