I have hesitated putting this on the board, but I have had some success at aborting the pain by putting liquid hot sauce under my tongue and keeping it there for about five minutes. I read about it in a posting on another site. Of course, a couple of results is not scientific evidence, especially since I'm pretty sure my HA's are diminishing into remission. Since I like hot food, this was not torture for me, but those who have not built up a tolerance for tabasco might find it almost as bad as the head pain. A note of interest: I tried the capsaisen (sp) ointment some years ago, a concentrated pepper salve that cost $40. It burned like hell when I put it on the right side of my head but had no effect on the cluster. Talk about doubling your fun!
