Hi, I have to agree - you all have been my education and now I've found a Dr. who knows CH's and backs up what've I've learned here. My first CH - the one that got my attention and I KNEW it was not a "weird migraine", hit at a 9 and progressed to 10, lasting 3 days, now I did a Morphin induced break from the ER, but it did'nt like my repreive one bit! I've had a few that last 2 hrs or less since, but normaly they run 3-6, or worse they last 6+ and the shadow and residual pain holds a 6 or 7 till the next one follows usually in 45 minutes. Dr. Golnick says I'm Chronic, not magic to my ears, and I started the buildup to 80mg/3x day yesterday along wtih a steriod, not prednsone, sorry, I dont' recall name just starts dest... to try to stop the cycle, He's gone as high as over 700mg of the verapamil with patients so, I hope this works...so far, I'm now on DAY 5!!! without a nasty attack, shadowing today is even behaving, not had more than 4 days with bad shadows, so this is wonderful!!
