I'm really sorry to hear about your grandfather. I hope everything goes ok for you tomorrow.
Take the Verapamil with courage. You will be fine. I had no side effects. I started off with just a little on apple sauce and increased it from there. Dr. Hain said that was FINE to do. Remember it takes a good two to four weeks for it to start helping, so the sooner you get going the sooner you will notice improvement!
The Verapamil helped me more the first time I took it. It seems that taking a break from it for those two weeks made it a little less effective this time around. Ugh.
I thought of you tonight--I was standing in a friend's kitchen and everyone is just having the best old time chatting and what was I doing? Gripping the counter with both hands and a hip... I couldn't wait to get out of there--I felt like I was going to fall. This is migraine?!?!?
