The best neuro I had was Dr. Phillip Savia. He is in SLC. Ihave been cronic about 10 years and the best results I could get were from 4-5 3 hour attacks each day down to 2 3 hour attacks each day. Needless to say I could not work at all. Dr. Savia referred me to a Anesthesiologist Dr. Lynn Webster just to try some better pain management. Dr. Webster has some very different ideas about pain management and explained to me a methadone therapy that if gave it enough time I might besurprized. After 4 months of slowly increasing my daily dosage I went from 2 attacks a day to only 2-3 a week and have been that way for 3 years now. Except for some side constipation I have virtually no side effects and can drive and work and hve a life again. I have got a lot of critisism on th9is board but why would I really care with these kinds of results!! My wife and children would never want me to go back. There is so much misinformation about narcotic use and because most victims of CH rarely get th right dosageof the right meds long enough this BS just continues. I have gone off the treatment several times and within weeks I return to 4-5 attacks each day.. ThanksMikeL
