Here is an idea:
If you find yourself at a loss for words in describing cluster headaches - try this....
If you usually abort an attack - DO NOT Abort your next attack; instead just ride it out in its splendor and glory.
Next, after you come out of the attack, sit down at your 'puter and begin typing. I believe the intensity of pain and the "I-HATE-MYSELF-AND-I-WANT-TO-DIE!!! feelings may inspire you to put it into words.
I am blue in the face after years of having to explain it to people. Just think about it. You may have just as hard of a time trying to explain the feeling of an orgasm - but then again who has orgasms ten times a day (unless you are a pig or just are a 'handy' person.)
This is important. The people in the cellophane world will never know what a CH is like unless we can explain it to them, or beat them severely about the head with a 9 iron for about an hour.
Sorry, I am in a rank mood. I just came out of an 11 and right now I hate the whole f#@&ing mess that is called life.
