Well, I got what what I expected. That is why I stopped coming back here in the first place. First of all, I'm not a salesman. I have been in constuction since I was about 16, I am now 41. Next, I never said I was cured. I suffered from migraines from the time I was 10 til I was about 23. I had a few years with nothing and have since had clusters. After years of taking meds, screaming at my doctors, going to chiropactic offices, accupuncturist, massage parlors and hot tubs, I realized the medical field knew very little. I Stopped going to all and decided to ride out all CH. I also started researching on my own. I found the medical field knew very little and had done even less research. If you folks are happy with the meds your taking I'm happy for you. But remember ANY type of headache is a red flag and meds are just a temporary band-aid. I will probabaly never quite feel cured. I know clusters can come and go at any time. However, one year without is one year without. I do beleive that the exercises and therapy have and will continue to make a difference. Taking meds that they give pregnant women after child birth aint going to get it. Taking meds for seizures or depression aint going to get it either. However, I won't cut you folks down the way you did me. If your not interested, thats fine. I had my doubts too. But it has helped, not cured. I can tell you this. About 90% of all headaches are directly related to some type of stress. I have info and will work on puting something together for any interested. You may e-mail me, I'm in the directory.
