I`ve been taking between 4 to 6 powders a day for the last couple months and they are the only thing keeping me sane.
O2 and Imitrex do nothing for my headaches,but those powders will numb all but my strongest headaches. Sometimes the powder will last up to 5 or 6 hours and other times the pain will come back within the hour.
Many people here will say that nothing over the counter will help us,but everyone is different.
I also dont believe I have typical CH and all my symptoms point more towards Chronic Paroxysmal Hemicrania.
The above site mentions that aspirin is often usefull (but not quite fully effective) in treating CPH,so it makes sense that the powders (more powerful than aspirin alone) would help me out a bit.
Indomethicin is supposed to be THE test to see if you have CPH instead of CH since it is 100% effective in stopping the headaches. I`ve had a prescription for it for over a week,but I havent gotten it filled yet because I`m a bit afraid of it`s side effects.
