Mine is doing that also. I started in March and very few problems during the day but at night, every 1 1/2 hours I would awaken with one. Mine would usually subside in 15 min with the oxygen next to my bed and i would go right back to sleep. This would go on every 1 to 1/2 all night. The last one before i awoke was the worse. It was almost like they were building up during the night. Anyway, I added verapimil to my arsenal and after a week, down to one or sometimes none. Well two weeks ago I realized that I had not even had any shadows day or night so I came off the verap. Cut them into, I was taking 120mg before bedtime. Two nights later I went to bed without any. Went another week with nothing. Then last Sat night, I went to a movie and felt a slight shadow during the movie but it went away on its on in 15 minutes. Sunday night I went to bed and was slammed with 2 8-9's and about a five. I immedietely went back on the verap and have increased the dosage to 240 but to no avail, as of yet. Last night I was awaken every hour with really bad ones that lasted 15 minutes. I just knew that after 4 months of daily ha's and then 3 weeks pain free that they were over. This has never happened before and so far the verap has not done a thing yet. May still be early. Needless to say, I am very depressed.
