Thanks for all the responses to my first post the other day! Saw the doc, she was in a big hurry and just gave me a prescription for a 2 week round of steroids, but made no provisions for what happens after. I didn't read the posts about high doses of verapamil working best until after I saw her, so I didn't ask. If anyone knows of any serious homeopathic remedies, please let me know because I'm not too comfortable w/all these meds (she gave me the prescription for steroids and one for sleeping pills in case they make me jittery - that's when I start getting nervous!). I have had some doozies in the past few days. Last night I just took the percadin before going to bed so I could be buzzed out through my first round of attacks. Worked, but I woke up 6 hours later w/about a 7-8 trying to resist pounding my head so my hubby and kids wouldn't think I was nutso! Arrggg! Yesterday I almost started crying and pacing in the video store. I just keep thanking God for every hour of headache free hours, few though they may be! Well, I'm off to get my steroids, so hopefully it'll smooth out from here. I hope others are having a better time than me! BTW, Carl, if you're reading this, you're not he only looser out there. I know I've been there and I'm sure others have too. Hang in there. Just make it from day to day and moment to moment. I'm pretty sure that becomeing a decent human being is about the only point there is too life, so try and concentrate on that and let the rest go by for now! Peace!
