Thank you everybody for your support. Many of your comments brought tears to my eyes this morning. It's good to know that there are other people out there who REALLY understand the pain I feel and can offer advice.
My next question as the new kid on the block: Several of you mentioned the terms, episodic and chronic. What is the diference between the two and how can I know which category I fall into? Like I said before, this attack began July 10th and hasn't let up. I still experience 3-4 headaches daily even on the 240mg of Verapamil. I would rate them a 4-5 on the Kip scale. Is my medicine not strong enough or is this normal?
