In Reply to: Questions about shadows and cycle ending posted by Kiki on August 26, 2001 at 12:15:31:

My own personal experience is this:

I had CHs every day for 9 weeks, the longest yet and then I would wake up and before a shadow would come, take a imitrex pill. I had been using shots for the major pain. I dont know whether my cycle had finished or not, but I was too bloody scared not to take that pill in the morning. Then after a week, I thought that I would see if the beast was out there waiting and not take the imitrex pill. Thank god he wasnt. I had about 3 months totally pain free, but I now get shadows every day for the last month. Maybe they are 1 on the pain scale, if a 1 exists. I half expect a full blown cluster to start again, but fingers crossed, it hasnt yet. Funny thing is... the only way to stop the shadows is to drink whisky. Therefore I guess I have nothing to worry about. Perhaps its all in my mind. Heres hoping that your cycle is ending and many pain free days lie ahead.
