Hi Friends,
Getting a bit nervous here. Been epsisodic for the last 5 years. Cycles always ran like clockwork from January through the end of March.
Since the end of my cycle last year, I kept having little "mini" attacks, lasting maybe 10 to 30 seconds a shot two or three times a week. No big deal. But, did go on throughout the whole year.
Went into my regular cycle about 2 weeks later that normal this year (2 weeks of pure hope shot), so I wasn't too surprised that I wasn't completly out of cycle by the end of March.
However, it's now almost the end of June! I still feel like I'm in the peak of the cycle with no end in sight.
This doesn't have to mean I'm going chronic right? Has this happened to other episodics and then they return back to their "normal" cycles?
I've been married a year as of April, I didn't expect to bring this burden on my wife, I'm more worried about her than me.
If you know, I'd prefer the truth. I'm 40 if that matters. Gone from 3 month bouts to 6 so far this year, plus those year long mini attacks.
Truthfully please, what do you suppose my odds or chances are that I may be going chronic. Are there any true signs? Any experiences? Anything at all?
