Now the fun part really starts - trying to find the trigger(s). I may never find it, which means taking some type of medication from now on. I also get to try out different types of medications (if needed). For the time being, I'm sticking with my current medication. I've gotten the OK to up my dosage another 10mg if needed. I go back in 8 weeks or if my meds don't seem to be working (i.e. blocking or stopping the episodes). In that 8 week span, C and I will be making a trip, so they are very interested to see how I do on on the planes and immediately afterward. They are also interested to see how I do in the environment I'll be in (in keeping with my tradition of not disclosing info about trips I take until I return, the destination will remain a mystery until I get back to post about it).
The real bummer is that starting tomorrow, they want me to cut out (as much as possible):
- wine, especially red
On a positive note, they told me that the vast majority of people who have this rarely, if ever, have headaches. I've been trying to remember when I last had a headache and discounting an after several glasses of wine one back in September, I can't recall one. So I have that going for me....
