I am also glad to find this web page. I am 28 years old and also suffer from both cluster headaches and migraines.
I was told by several doctors that it is impossible to have both in the same person. Well obviously they
were wrong because I have both. I have tried almost every medication for migraines with no help. Most seem
to make the headaches worse or have severe side effects.

I usually have severe migraines during the periods when I don't have the cluster headaches. I am lucky to have a
very understanding wife. Except she has no idea how bad the pain really is, she has only had three minor sinus headaches
her entire life. She can't immagine headaches that are so severe that they cause me to black out.

I felt better at first when I found this site but then I felt bad when I realized that I felt better because there were
others who suffered as bad as I do. I guess I felt guilty.

When I get the headaches I usually lie down, pretty much pass out and wake up several hours later and the headache has
subsided to a tolerable level for me.

I can honestly say that I am very tired of having constant headaches.

Sorry to complain, but aleast who ever reads this will understand.
