The clusters vs. migraine battle......thought I had said my last piece on that, but......
I, too, experience both. I still cannot say which is worse. (sorry, Drummer!) Because of the "wonder drug", Imitrex, I DON'T GIVE A FLYING F*** what others say or think is worse. With the Imitrex, a ch is gone in 3 minutes. A migraine is gone in 15 minutes. The pain is definitely worse in a cluster. BUT, that pain only lasts for around 3 hours or so for me. This is without the Imitrex injection aborting the ch. A migraine, without the Imitrex pill, I am in bed for 3 days, pucking my guts out and dead to the world. Granted, the pain is not as severe, but the effects of the migraine are so debilitating that it is a real pain in the ass. Now, without the Imitrex, which would I prefer? Don't know. I hate both head attacks. Both ruin your life in some way, shape or form. Because of that, on a scale, I would weigh them equally. I know those of you who do not suffer from both may not agree and I can appreciate that. BUT, because both attacks can impair your life to such an extent, I say that we end this war as to which one is worse. IMHO, both are damn shitty and I still ask God why he had to hit me twice. Once would have been sufficient. All I know is that I love Imitrex and would go to the ends of the earth for it.
