I can understand your feelings...I felt the same way when all I had to rely on were abortives. But things got alot better when I found a preventative that worked for me. Have you ever tried any of the preventatives used for chs like verapamil, topamax, lithium, depakote? I can remember when Imitrex is all that I had and because of the expense and the problems with my insurance company, I felt so hopeless every time my ch cycle hit. I was diagnosed chronic a few years ago but recently I was put on topamax and I can deal with this diagnosis alot better. I don't have to deal with every clusterheadache and wear myself down everytime I am hit....this is what made me start to lose hope...talk to your doctor about finding a preventative that will work for you...If you are interested in topamax, email me. smiles,nancyc
