I agree with your definition almost entirely. Mine started when I was in the Army. Just *thinking* about going on leave was almost enough by itself to bring on a stress-relief migraine. I can’t tell you the number of times that weekends, holidays, vacations, and evenings spent just quietly watching TV with my wife after a day’s work have all been destroyed by these damned stress-relief migraines. Last year, I spent an entire three-week vacation in bed with a stress-relief migraine-cluster.
I disagree with you on only one point: from *my* personal experience, for pure, unadulterated, agonizing, excruciating pain, the cluster headache clearly takes the Oscar, the cake, or any other award you care to name. I *will* say that a cluster is worse than a migraine. But please note that this is just *my* personal experience. I don’t intend to imply that your personal experience or your personal opinion is in any way “wrong” or somehow “inferior“ to mine.
Peaceful days and pain-free nights.
