Hi all...16 year episodic sufferer here. Have my doctor's appointment next Tuesday to start the prednisone again. Went a whole two years this time. It started 11/15, but I could feel something funny happening before. When they strike (left side, near the nose), it feels like a heavy guy with golf spikes standing on one side of my face. Two to Three episodes a day. Taking tylenol with codine to somewhat control the pain until it goes (usually about an hour). My doc is not fond of taking Imitrex for every episode. Ginger tabs also seem to help prior to the CH. Just want to say "Hi", and I feel your pain.
