It seems strange, as the definition of chronic is no breaks of more than fourteen days within any 12 month period (and that fortnight must be without medication being taken).
I don't think inventing a new phrase is going to help any of us, especially one which is peculiar to one doctor, and not recognised by the International Headache Society!!
Sounds to me like your doctor is trying to make you feel special. Being chronic is special enough thank you! :-)
Hope things improve,
