I have been suffering from CH for 20 years now.Only last year i have found a drug called imigram.It WORKED!! where as nothing up until that point has even scratched the surface of a CH attack.But as i only had this drug towards the end of my last attack (week 6 out of 7) last August i am somewhat anxious that was it the drug that workedand not the fact that the CH was on the way out.I am lucky that i only suffer CH every 18 months or so . So i am waiting for my next attack which by my calculations is about 6 momths away.When it comes i will be ready with my imigraminjection, only then will i know if this drug really works. After 19 years of taking every kind of tablet that did nothing to stop the pain you begin to wonder and i am sure most of you sufferers out there can relate to that.Anyway does anybody know how long CH lives for ie. will i suffer all my life with CH?I am presently in between attacks, what are the odds of CH never returning?Does CH cause any damage? You know the pain it is that strong surely something is going on.Will it eventually kill me? Believe me when i saykill me because during an attack anything is possible if you know what i If you have not tried imigram yet and nothing else is working for you give it a try, you might get lucky.Simon
