I never really gave much thought to my HYPOTHALMUS before... as a matter of fact I still dont know what it is or how to pronounce it! The Hipopotomous is a... Ooops! The Hypothalmus is the part of the brain we call the "body clock" its also the part of the brain that influences the production of serotonin. For some reason the deformed hypothalmus causes a gross enlargement of blood vessels around the major facial nerve which runs thru the back of the eye, face and jaw. Imitrix is actually a "blood pressure" medication and has nothing to do with "pain killers".
OK.... So Imitrix can "TEMPORARILY" prevent an attack if taken soon enough... Verapimil can help stop a cycle after about a month of use! (DAMN PHARMACEUTICALS) And then Lidocaine in your nose or even better (so they say) COCAINE in your nose has been said to abort attacks (Ive even had "imitrix nasal"). Hallucinogenics like LSD and Psylociben mushrooms are said to abort and prevent cycles! What do all these drugs do to your Hypothalmus?????
