referred to the prior statement...that this is the first time I recall this subject coming up. Individual frequency has been posted by nearly everyone (i.e., 'Hi,I'm new. I get x to y attacks per day....).
What I don't recall being discussed is whether there is a difference in the daily number of attacks between chronics and episodics. So far, 5 in 24 hours is my 'record'. I'm episodic. Elaine spent years having 7 or 8 per day...she's chronic, but now medicated down to 4 per week. Could it be that the damaged myelin sheath or the high/low seratonin levels or the amount of excess gray matter is more severe in a chronic, accounting for both the chronic state and a greater incidence of attacks per day?
I'm absolutely interested in individual experience...collectively :-)
