The organisation I work for moved into a new building. After a few weeks I began to get a pounding, sickening headache during the morning. At lunchtime I used to go home and take 2 painkillers. The pain would begin to wear off but as soon as I returned to work in the afternoon the headache would return, as bad as ever. I took to keeping the windows of my office wide open, hoping that fresh air would do the trick, but the headaches continued. Then I realized that I didn't get the headaches at weekends or on public holidays. At that time, sick building syndrome was not very well known and I had a good idea what the doctor would have said if I complained that coming to work gave me blinding headaches. After a couple of years I changed departments and moved into another, older, building. The headaches stopped abruptly. Six years later I started to experience cluster headaches. Wondering if there could be any connection, I would like to ask any other CHers if they experienced sick building syndrome before their clusters began.
