Tried energy drink and Panadol. Took the edge off a bit. Took 20mg Relpax at midnight and CH was gone by 12.10pm. Good stuff.

Took Relpax-Not much relief
Drank can of RockStar after about 30 mins of pain and CH went after about 5 mins. Maybe its the energy drink and not the relpax that works. Time to experiment.

Relpax + Mother energy drink = relief
Finally something that seems to work fairly fast
