The official definition of chronic is headaches for at least one year with no more than a 14 day remission during that time. Now, by that definition I could get one headache every 13 days and be a chronic. I could live with that. Unfortunately, that's not how it goes. Most get a headache every day or two and a lot get them every day. I talked with drummer this morning. If he's not medicated he gets 6 - 12 headaches a day. Each one lasting an hour. With medication he gets 2 or 3 a day. Said he may get a 1 or 2 day break a few time a year.

It really keeps me in awe of these people. Tuff mother hunkers boy!

I'm trying to find out how many of the chronics are in that one a week, one every couple of weeks class.
