Hi all,
I have just found this site, superb amount of info.
My name is Craig I'm 28 and live in the U.K. I have been suffering with CH's for about 7 years now and am glad to find a site that has been helpful.
I thought I would share some of my remides with you.
There a few ways wich I deal with CH's, When I'm nearing the being of my cycle I start taking a Tablet called Propranolol (40mg) twice a day,which is a Beta blocker. They don't actually prevent the CH's but help relive them when they start. When I eventually get an attack I take 2 Co-Proxamol (325mg) tablets just as I feel it starting. I generally find that them combined with the Propranolol reduce the severity quite a lot and the CH's tend to only last about 10-15 mins.
Anyhow I hope this helps someone.
