After reading the posts to my question, I'm begining to feel a lot more comforted. I had been suffering with these headaches for half my life, and I always felt like I was alone. None of my family or friends have ever suffered like this, so they have no clue how painful this all can be. It's been frustrating because NOTHING worked. My girlfriend (now wife) would always try to force aspirin and such on me, and I'm sure you all know how effective that is!
A quick reply to jonny; You maybe be right about me not mentioning pulling my eye out of my head, however I have a different urge. When I'm in the middle of an attack, the only way I feel I can get relief is if I drive my left eye into the back of my skull!! Does that qualify? ;)
I have never heard of CPH, and it sounds like something I'm going to investigate. I've also never sought treatment from a doctor for these headaches, because I really didn't believe there was anything out there that would help.
The only thing that disturbs me when hearing about this CPH, is it's pretty depressing to know that I might have 2 distinct conditions involving my head! How many people are in the world? Can't we spread some of this joy around to other people instead? I'm not greedy! :)
Anyway, thanks again everyone. It's GREAT to know that other people like me are out there. I will be frequently visiting this board! Talk to you all soon...
