I have been where you are and I know what you are going through. Have you tried any medications in the past. Verapamil will probably be your best bet, and try to get a script for 02 from your doc, which will abort an attack if taken through a NON BREATHER MASK at 8mil per flow. Verapamil is a god send to me. I take the time released form. 180mg 2x per day usually keeps me pain free. Some people here take a much higher dosage. You have to educate your doctors about this disorder I am afraid to tell you.
If you need any more help, questions answering...please email me with your telephone number and I will call you.
You can get this bastard under control Jim...all is not lost my dear, I promise you.
PS Don't drink any alcohol it will trigger a headache
