Hi Robin: I'm 54 and haven't suffered in many years (probably because of age and anticonvulsants (depakote) but when I was first diagnosed with these wall-bangers, I was taught a biofeedback technique. I was skeptical but it did help during the attacks. As these are vascular, I was told to "think" of redirecting bloodflow from behind my eye, down my neck and into my arms and hands. As my hands warmed, the throbbing gradually subsided behind my eye. It takes intense concentration, a cool, dark room, and for me no "help" as it just gets in the way. This kind of thing is fairly easy to learn and I found it lessens the severity of the attacks as well as duration and allowed me a little sleep. I also had good results with Inderal but I no longer need it. All the best--Charlie Strand
