Thank you all for responses. He has not been "officially diagnosed. I was actually put on this trail by a resident Dr in the ER who had them. This was a few years back.
For some reason he didn't get them last year but now back with a vegence. We live north of Detroit & a victim of the massive layoffs here. Working but no insurance at the moment. He did see a Dr who gave imitrex but he hates them & says he can't really go to school after taking. Plan on getting him in next week see about oxygen script see how that works out. He should be about done with his cycle based on previous experience. Just trying to break it now, he's really at the edge & can't function for school & work. If mm will work, & may be why he didn't get them last year then that's the path we are going down. Just trying to get all the info I can. I was able to get a few O2 tanks to get him thru the last week but now he's out again & starting to panic. I couldn't believe the hassle they gave me just to buy a mask without a prescription, this is just crazy. They even gave him a hard time when he tried to get a tank from welding supply. He told them it was for work but he's not a very good liar so he just left. Keep hitting dead ends everywhere......crazy.
