the cluster h/a seem to prefer the left...the cph prefers the right, but occasionally will visit on the left.

I *know* how lucky I've been....the CPH has been under control since early November - I just didn't realize it.

For the most part, I can handle the CH - I know the h/a will be over in 1/2 hour or so, and that I'll only get 7 or 8 that day. Imitrex works 90% of the time as an abortive; oxygen doesn't help these h/a. I've been on lithobid as a preventative for 2 weeks.

The CPH has really thrown me... not even 2 minutes between headaches! they're so intense! they're either burning stabs, or freezing stabs...

How the heck am I gonna take part in Christmas celebrations like this? How'm I gonna keep my job if these keep up?

I apologize if this is a rambling, incoherent post (I feel pretty rambling and incoherent at the moment).

hugs, Elizabeth
