I have am kind of coming to think I have hemicrania continua– judging from the description from other internet people and the my doctor’s guess at giving me indomethecin, the only thing that has WORKED yet, I am fairly confident this is what I’m looking at. After the max dose for 2 weeks I can’t believe that I’ve only had 2 severe days after 6 months of almost all severe days.
Anyway, since I have indomethecin responsive headache, I was looking for other remedies.
The internet suggests Boswelia or Galicin, a brand name which is more expensive but supposedly a “Special” brew.
My question is: Has anyone had any luck with Boswelia or Galicin if you have hemicrania continua? I have been taking Boswelia without a huge difference, and Galicin has big claims but its seventy bucks a bottle so don’t want to risk it. Wish they would send me a sample if it really is as good as indomethetcin…
Also I’ve heard people take melatonin during the day. I take it at night but I’m afraid to try in the AM as I have fallen asleep at my desk at work in the past.
Anyone have any experience with Galicin, Melatonin or Boswellia during the day?
