Another ICI diagnosis = A good reason for no blog posts lately

Recently I had my fourth appointment since November at a local neurologist's office. At this appointment I was finally diagnosed with a form of chronic migraine headache:

2012 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 346.11
Migraine w/o aura, w/ intract migraine, so stated, w/o mention of status migrainosus

Intractable Migraine
sustained, severe Migraine and accompaniments that are not effectively terminated by standard outpatient intervention. May evolve to a chronic and continuing form, similar to chronic daily headache.
Status migrainosus-- The medical term for an acute migraine headache that lasts 72 hours or longer.
