Two weeks ago, I started a cycle of CH. Before that time,
my last cycle was in 1993. I called my doctor to renew
my perscription of Imitrex (injections). She gave it
to me with no problem....however, she did ask me to
consider light exercise when I feel an attack coming on.
Since then, I have had 8 beginnings of an attack and a
couple of brisks walks around my block (breathing in
through the nose and out through the mouth) seemed to do
the trick for each episode.
I have kept up the exercise every night even if I don't
feel a headache coming on (I also need to lose weight).
I have only had one headache that woke me up....but
nothing major.
I guess the idea of exercise is similar to breathing introduces more oxygen into the blood, and
increases blood circulation. works for me.....I hope it works for others.
I have not had to use my Imitrex yet.
