After incurring a sports related concusion, I was referred to a neurologist to examine and assess the severe (!!!) headaches that I was experiencing. After a CAT scan and a birage of tests ..the Dr. diagnosed my condition as one of having 'cluster headaches'. He gave me a prescription (the drug's name escapes me) and told me to take it easy for the coming months. After about five months of pain free living..the headaches returned with avengance. Tylenol 3 was not working so my GP prescribed TECNAL to help ease the pain at the onset of the symptoms. This seems to be working, albeit in a limited manner, but the nausea that seemed to accompany the original headaches has now returned and seems to be present most hours of the day. It is especially prevelant at night and is very very strong. Is this common? Do others who experience cluster headaches also experience this severe nausea? Any advice on how to control it? What about occasional sharp pains in the head (back of the cranium)? Is this also associated with the condition? Thanks......
