hi. my husband has recently figured out he has clusters. they are getting worse(part of the pattern as i understand). he's been waking up the past few nights at 1:30-2:30. he takes nasal imitrex(my presrciption) and it helps. but they scare and upset the both of us(him more than me though i imagine:))
i'm uncomfortable about continuing to medicate him w/out seeing a doc but as long as he's in pain, we will. i'm also concerned he'll build a tolerance to the imitrex. has that happened to anyone?
also, i've heard its best to use preventatives or prednisone or something to abort a cycle..
anyway, long and short of it-he has an appointment w/ my neurologist(migraines-keep out of our house:)) but it's not until end of august :(
does anyone have a dr in atlanta to reccommend? any ch specialists? we'd REALLY appreciate it.
