Thank you all for the response. Yes my husband is under Dr. Ford's care (of the Ford Headache Clinic in Birmingham, AL). Actually, he's been suffering from these for about 3 years, but this year has been the worst of all. He's going into the hospital on Monday for more treatment and possibly a nerve block (scary!). Verapamil caused a heart related reaction - they are going to try it in an IV and monitor him. That kinda scary too. But any kind of relief would be just dandy. We would love to have some sort of life back.
And I learned the first time about not asking things during an attack! Just get the oxygen and turn the heat up. You should see our gas bill this winter.....
Well, thanks again and I'll check back for more responses tomorrow.
Thanks to all and to all good luck!
