My sincerest apologies for not responding, I lost this site information and just today discovered it!!!
Have you had any change or improvement? I still have the headache, it has lessened in severity with the occasional bout of whopper headaches.
I have been through 5 Doctors in as many years and I have yet to find one who will address my headache, due to other severe health conditions they just chalk it up as a reaction to that...
I did however come across a physicians assistant who placed me on a heart medication - verapamil - which has seemed to lessen the severity of the pain and the frequency of the severe headache days.
I hope you have found some relief...I would like to hear how you are doing and about your experiences with the medical professionals.
