Hi Masta
Welcome to the site. First of all work through all the information on the site. The Full Medical Info on the left would have to be the most helpful--just read through slowly and absorb the information. With regard to oxygen‚ many find this very helpful as did I in the early days and certainly in the early stages of headaches. I am afraid I have gone into the chronic stages and it doesn't help me all that much but dont use that as a negative. Here in SA all that is needed is a note from a Dr saying that medical oxygen is needed and a cylinder can be hired from a "gas suppliers" and a regulator from medical suppliers. I had no problems with this at all; your GP should be able to help. Not cheap but worth it if works for you. Re cafergot‚ I think there is something on this site about it; perhaps have a wander through some of the postings--this will give you the added bonus of getting a greater understanding of what some of the other treatments are. The greatest support you can give your partner is having a good understanding of what he/she suffers and how you can help during an attack. Remember we are here even if it to blow off steam.
