Sorry that you are going through them. My sister, I believe, has this type although she has never been formally diagnosed. She has the numbing of her face and body. She is lucky, she only has to take a nsaid, some caffeine and that usually works for her.
All I know, and someone correct me if I am wrong, is that you should not take Triptan meds.
Sorry that I can't be more help.
Please be nice to me, I'm a blood donor (conquering my fear of needles one pint at a time).
