My husband has suffered for 15+ months with this beast (which was his first cycle) and is STILL suffering. He thought it was a tooth, has a cavity filled, 3 root canals, MRI and ultimately had the tooth pulled! Finally this past friday he went to a neurologist that said it was indeed clusters. He put him on prednisone for 10 days, depakote 500mg twice a day AND a 4% lidocaine nasal spray to use during an attack. Has anyone else heard of this spray? He said he has a pharmacy that will specialy make it for him, and there is only one in our city that does this to his knowledge, so we will be trying this, just wondered if anyone else had heard this. The doctor he went to specializes in headaches!
