I have suffered from CCH for the past 25 years and have been prescribed every drug possible although none actually helped. Nor did acupuncture, oxygen, hypnotism or manipulation. I saw some of the best doctors in this field who did their best but have to thank God for the late Dr. Philip Tydswell of Blackburn NHS, my hero. It took him about 6 appointments before he prescribed IMIGRAN SUBJECT INJECTIONS, the only relief medicine I know! It can take effect within minutes or it did with me.
Besides this he prescribed LITHIUM Carbonate and this worked in a way that controlled the onset of the headache and after a couple of years on lithium I now feel CCH free and drug free and have been for the last year. I still get the occasional sharp pain but only for a second or two. Just sorry I can't thank that lovely man.
