In Reply to: i just got diagnosed, please help me... posted by crystal on April 29, 2001 at 02:20:27:

when i was first diagnosed 10 miserable years ago, my wacko neurologist put me on vicodin. since then, i have seen another neurologist and he prescribed me verapamil hydrochloride. it make the ch's less intense 99% of the time. however in the last 2 years, i have broken my hand twice from hitting a wall because the pain was so intense and the verapamil failed to prevent a three hour attack. during those attacks, there is nothing you can do that i am aware of, that will lessen the pain. i started doing handstands ( you know, standing on my hands against the wall) and it totally helps, as long as i am upside down. ice on the neck and head also help me.
