Yesterday I was diagnosed with CH and put on Imotrex injections. I can't say I'm happy to be in your company, but at least I was diagnosed quickly (3 weeks) and didn't have to go through some of the horrors you folks did.
I am thankful that there is a place on the web for people with CH, it's makes it easier knowing that I'm not alone while my left eye seems to be trying to seperate itself from the rest of my head. I've only been going through this for 3 weeks now and am praying that it go's as fast as it came.
Thanx folks for being so informative it really gave me some ammo to throw at my doc before he mis-diagnosed me. I do have a question......I gave myself my first Imotrex injection last night and had some tightning of my chest and neck and a kind of burning sensation through out my head, have any of you had this side effect? According to the info that came with it
, these this seems like it may be common, but I was just wondering. However it did relieve my pain realativly quickly (about 6 mins). Again, thanx for being here, I'm sure I'll check back from time to time and will most certainly be lurking around. :)
