My headaches are slowing down

The last really bad headache that I had was in November 2008.  They have slowed down a lot.  I get 2 maybe 3 small attacks a day but that is it.  I am so happy!  I am able to get a lot more done every day because I don’t have to stop and wait for …

No more meds

So, 2 weeks ago, i decided to quit taking my medication. The side effects got worse, and I could not bare it anymore. I became constantly tired. So tired that i could not drive, or do anything for that matter. I was increasingly dizzy too. So I quit. It took about 5 days for the …

This last week was the first time that these attacks were felt in my nose.  have you ever went swimming and got water up your nose?  It felt like that.  It was as if the ‘lighting attack’ ended in my nostril, and it hurt.  For 3 days it was on my right side, and then …

CPH —I HATE IT!

So, its been awhile now since I finally discovered whats wrong with my head. I have noticed that it seems to be seasonal. for me anyway. These headaches, which I call thunder and lightning headaches, seem to be worse in the Fall and Winter than in Summer and Spring. Since I won’t be taking any …

Whats going on inside my head?

In the spring of 1999,While caring for my boys, I had my first headache attack. It felt like lightening bolts shooting through my left eye. My eye was watery afterwards, and my nose was a little runny. Soon, the attacks became more frequent (both sides of my head, and on all areas), and I learned …
