At first it was maybe 1-2 times a year, was brief and went to the doc multiple times. They thought ear infections, shingles
, nothing ever developed. now I get it almost every 3-4 weeks and it lasts 2 weeks. (don't fret, I am sure this will not happen for you.) At this point I have 2 different personalities, the "pain" me and the "normal" me. My kids, husband, family,neuro know exactly which one I am as well, immediately after seeing me.
