I have been taking a Calcium Channel Blocker for another disorder and my Neuro expected it would help reduce my cycles. Instead of getting the cycle at about 13-16months it delayed until 20 months. But now this cycle seems worse. I even had a daytime one yesterday after sunbathing.


1) I have a strange like thumping in my upper chest/lower throat near the beginning of an episode. It feels like I got the wind knocked out of me a little. As the episode progresses this goes away.
Anyone have anything like this??

2) My whole body feels messed up and I have some dizzy feeling at the onset as well.

3) If I decide to take a course of Prednisone will this make me more vulnerable to colds, etc.

Thanks for any help. I am in Vietnam and have little access to good medical attention.
