Sorry, of course, that you have to be here, but glad you found us; surely you know you're among friends.
About stress exacerbating the headaches there seems to be some debate, but don't despair yet about going from episodic to chronic. Does it happen? Yes! In fact, after almost a year of daily headaches last year, I was convinced I was "going chronic" and it really laid me low in every way. Still, my headaches eventually did go away, and I've been okay since last February. The thought of them NEVER leaving, however, always lingers in one's mind.
You mention that you're on verapamil, but at which dosage? Maybe if your Dr. upped the dose, you could knock them out.
In any case, I'm sure a few people will log-in with their take on stress, but meanwhile, stay tuned, and I hope you feel better soon.
