According to my neurologist I am cronic. When I first saw him n september last year, I was having up to 8 attacks a dy each lasting anything between an hour and three houers. This lasted two to three weeks a few days rest and then it restarted. This went on for about 6 months. In these six months I think I only had one scale 10. I was walking and had an attack which caused a blackout. Next thing I new I was lying on the pavement. No pain exept in my badly damaged foot and ancle, I had to go to outpatients for exrays on my foor. My neuro prescribed verampamiel and imigran injections. In 14 days before medication I had 64 attacks. 6 days ch, 2 rest 3days ch one day rest one day ch one day rest. The first two days that I started verampamiel I had 9 attacks. 3 days rest one attack. This time I was armed vith imitrax. What a relief that first injection was. The only problem was that I felt very tight chested and had difficulty breathing. Luckily I new that this was a side affect. after this I had 18 day PF days. What a blis. I fealt in heaven althou I had constent shadows. So you may understand I am willing to send fou my log boek as I call it. I hope for your sake that you do not become cronick. Latly I had been redusing medication and it all went hay wire. I had 5 days CH 2das PF. Now I am back on my old dosage things are calming down. Ihope you may find the right medication. I wish this for everyone.
