Well,apparently, I'm a pompous ass also because I am very possesive of my CH pain. I guess that comes from years of dealing with them on my own. Being so alone with that kind of pain creates all kinds of psychological issues not the least of which is "ownership" of your pain. I'm not saying that I wouldn't get rid of CH in a heartbeat if I could, but as of right now that is not possible so clusters are mine and anyone who says they have clusters just because they have a few little headaches several times a year better back off. For example, I'm a dental hygienist and a patient who is an R.N. told me she had clusters too. Well I knew she didn't and proceeded to tell her so but she said her neuro and her opthamologist had diagnosed her with CH. After much discussion of symptoms and how many uninformed M.D.s are jumping on the CH bandwagon I finally convinced her that indeed she did not have clusters but probably migraines. Anyway the moral of the story is even though this board is for clusterheads, we will get others who come here in the mistaken belief that they too are clusterheads. One of our jobs as members of this fun and exclusive club is to educate as many as we possibly can so if they ever know anyone with clusters they can be good support people. I also know without a shadow of doubt that my cluster pain is worse than other types of headaches.
Here's to no cluster pain for anyone and the complete abolishment of our club!!
