You don't say what all you've tried (besides water), but maybe an industrial strength abortive like Imitrex would help. Yeah, it's expensive, but for me, choosing between money and CH relief is a no-brainer when things get bad enough. Another (much cheaper) option is to zap it hard with prednisone. I don't mean a few wimpy 20mg doses, I mean 60-80mg for a few days, then gradually tapering off to let the adrenals recover. This can be a life saver, especially if you're episodic. Okay, there can be side effects, but there's some kind of trade-off for almost any effective treatment (unless you can get Charlie's method to work).
