Joe, I just read your post. I am new to this site but not new to CH's. I too have suffered since I was 16. I'm now 37. My headaches come every year or year and a half. They last about two months. Takes two weeks for them to really get full blown. They are back with a rengence. Had two yesterday and am waiting for todays. Sucks. I have taken meds out the wazoo for years. Forget pain meds, never help. Emergency room visits don't help either, just hurt the wallet. At onset, I take Maxalt, down two 25 mg. Phenergan for the lovely nausea, then a 10 mg. Valium to relax me enough to not thrash around with the pain. This last week, I have been able to knock them out within two hours. Mine can last as long as 18 hours. I am seeing a migraine specialist tomorrow. He really seems to know his stuff. He suffers from CH too. Have to ask him about the O2. Never tried that. Does it help??
Good luck to U 2 day. Monica
