I'm so sorry you are all going through this hell....like I said to you in email - it's very unusual that true cluster attacks last this long and I'm a little worried that maybe something else is going on with Greg....HAS he been diagnosed with clusters by a neurologist? Please don't get me wrong - I am in NO way trying to discourage you from posting or seeking support here. Chronic pain SUCKS and it affects the whole family but, what if something else is wrong with Gary? What if he needs some other kind of treatment and cluster "treatment" won't help?
I, believe me, KNOW how hard it is to convince someone to go to a doc who has lost faith in doctors in general but maybe you can get in touch with a neurologist who can help you.
ANYWAYS, having said all that, the home remedies we have used to help Mike with his clusters have been the water treatment, oxygen, ice and gravol (Dramamine in the States)....the Gravol really does help him sleep through the night and sometimes a full night's sleep can do wonders to make him strong enough to fight the next day.....
I haven't read your email yet but I will go do that right now....
Hang in there, lady - we're all pulling for you here.
