Thanks so much for all the kind responses- it's been suprising and saddening to me and my husband that this community exists. Heart-warming, also. It's 1:45 and his ch's are back again. We are
definitely going to look into the oxygen therapy that seems so prevalent on this message board. We've had two little valium in our medicine chest since college- about 8 years ago- and he took one last
night out of desperation. They help him sleep a bit, but we know they're not the wonder drug. We will try the oxygen. I feel lucky, in a very guilty sort of way after reading so many terrible stories, that his
headaches have been so long (4 years) in returning. I hope his personal pattern keeps up.
I've read that smoking doesn't exacerbate the ch's, but that alcohol does. Any feedback on this? We live in Austin, TX and frequently go see bands: smoke and a few beers. Do we need to stop that?
Love and empathy to you all.
