I am 32 and have suffered from episodic CH's for like ten yrs or so... The character of my cycles has changed this year though... So, I have been curious...

I found this interesting because, for whatever reason, I have not really read anything on the CPH thing before.

In reading the posts that Johnny referred you to, about CPH, there was one post talking about a condition wherein one has a 'continuous headache' ('HemoCrania Continua' or some such). The individual posits that their 'normal' cycle ended and left them in this state. It just makes me think is all. I have been trying to put this into some context and maybe that is it.

Now, I KNOW I suffer from the typical episodic CH's. However, as I have said recently, my cycle never did stop as usual. Instead it has continued hanging around, though in a modified form, not as often reaching the deathly k9&10's and stuff but quite torturous and irritating anyway. And it does seem as if it is there all the time, kind of phasing in and out of your regular CH feeling numeruous times per day... I have usually been able to sleep ok after staying up until I am thouroughly exhausted so that is why I am saying it seems different...

In the past, I have had the light sensitivity and sensitivity to sounds. And I have been noticing that cropping up lately, seemingly touching off the other usual symptoms of the CH, except for it's like most of the time, in and out.

So, just what the heck am I saying? LOL! I don't know. Anyway, I reckon I should read up on this...

Ah, well. I have taken the shroom treatment again the other night and it does seem to be helping a bit.

Hang in there Pat. I think I know how you feel there bro. Good luck.

Lv, MikeB
