all of us have been there at one time or another with chs...One thing I can share with you is that anxiety makes my chs when I get to the point you are at, I have learned that I need to get busy...and that is a difficult thing to do...but start writing people via email...reach out to someone ...let others reach out to you...Believe me , it helps..If you think you are really having chest pains due to the imitrex, contact your Doctor...If you think you are having chest pains just because of anxiety after taking imitrex tabs, then go for the shots...I can tell you this...When I have to stay up nite after nite waiting on the pills to go to work, I get really worn down...and Don't take but 1/3 to 1/2 of the shot...I take 1/2 shot and in about 6 to 8 minutes I am pf.(click on the "imitrex tip" on the left) ...Boy, that is a big relief not to have to suffer long...also, there is another tip I learned here..dissolve a imitrex )or whatever you take) in a pill bottle of warm water...have it sitting there in case you wake up or just need to get faster relief...I think it works faster this way...And at nite, you may want to take a dramamine tab to help you sleep....There is so much good info here at some of it and see what works for you...Just dont ever give up...You got family here to help you when times get bad...smiles, and good luck, nancyc
