I was suffering from cluster headaches since I was 16years old. I went to see neurologists, and many other specialists because my headaches would cause stroke-like symptoms such as numbness and partial paralysis for short periods of time. However, about 2 years ago, I had a 5 day headache and I went to see a new doctor. Well, imitrex didn't work, duradrin didn't work, and it came down to the only thing to relieve the pain was a shot of demerol. After that string of headaches, my doctor put me on Atenolol which restricts certain T cells from your thyroid gland. I have not had another headache since. Just wanted to pass on the results from my experience, it helped me and there is no greater freedom than being rid of cluster headaches.
