Been a CH'er for 23 years, but this last bout (almost 2 months into it) has brought a new twist that I think may be due to some new meds I on. Here it is....whenever I really exert myself, like intense exercise or romantic escapades, I get a sharp pain across my temple. It starts quickly like a CH on the left side, but then shoots across my temple. It feels like an intense hangover and goes away a few minutes after I stop. I think it has something to do with irregular breathing and maybe caused by the cocktail of drugs I'm taking. I take Imitrex inj and Amerge as needed. I take Depakote, Prednisone and Lithium daily. Didn't notice this twist until I started with the Depakote. Anyone else ever experience this? Any advice? It's ruining my love life.
