Imitrex (and the other triptans) are miracle meds for many of us. I knock on wood that trex will work again the next time I go into cycle.
But triptans are hard on the heart and circulatory system, and thus are not for everyone. My heart hurts for you, my friend.
Part of the OUCH thrust to open discussion with Glaxo is and has to be to build a relationship so that we can eventually bring up these issues. Imitrex is a great start...now, how about continuing the research and find one that doesn't have the side effects?
A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step.
As far as the aging thing goes, not much I can say. There are thousands of us down here in Florida still looking for Ponce's Fountain of Youth. No luck.
Since I can't go back to being 30, I've decided to set my sights on aging gracefully, in hopes that one day I can achieve the level of dignity, honor and respect that you have. Given my age and yours, I reckon I've only got a year or two.
