Hi guys, been reading you all but first post. My husband is going on the third straight week of CH. Doctor gave him a prescription for Imitrex which was 6 sprays and insurance company says it should last 20 days. He is almost out. When it's gone I don't know what will happen. Does anyone have ANY suggestions? Anything to try? Caffeine, no caffeine. Anything. It's happened 3 times now with long times in between. And all 3 times it started the first of August. I noticed other people mentioning August as being a bad time. Any ideas? I'd appreciate any help or suggestions that you can give. He has an appointment Thursday with a neuro doc but I don't hold out much hope till he does all the tests that they like to run, MRI's and such. Do MRI's actually show anything? He is self-employed and can't work so we really need to get this show on the road. I work but this is going to ruin us in short order if we can't find something. I've heard Midren (spelling?)is good for migraines. Will it help with CH? I'm pretty sure the regular doctor will give him those. Please, ANY suggestions out there?
