I am 72 years old. I have had migraines for over 40 years. I have been taking Amerge, a triptan, for several years. I believe that I have triptan overuse headaches. I have not taken one in 11 days now. Do you have any information on how long it takes to recover from overuse headache? I have been taking ibuprophen with very little relief since I stopped the Amerge. Thank you, LaVerne.

At first, you celebrated when your girlfriend got the amazing Internet job in Seattle; but that was before you got a fellowship to N.Y.U. Now, six months later, the two of you are experts at the ins and outs of cybersex, you've racked up enough frequent-flier miles to circle the globe, and your phone bills are through the roof. Welcome to the long-distance relationship, 21st century style. If this scenario sounds familiar, you're in good company. There are some very high-profile LDRs (long-distance relationships) out there. Just ask Bush's Britain-bound Gavin Rossdale how much he misses his L.A. woman, Gwen Stefani of No Doubt. Or Yalie Claire Danes, who's literally on the other side of the planet from her sweetie, Australian rocker Ben Lee. Even those of us who aren't dating rock stars know that our turbocharged ambitions and fast-paced careers are taking us, and our relationships, across the country and all over the world.
