I haven't been to this site before ... it is informative.
To get to the point, I am 32 years old, male, non-smoker, don't drink,
pretty healthy at 6-3 and 240, but I get these crappy cluster headaches and they kind of
suck. At first it was called a sinus headache, then TMJ, but I guess everyone's heard that dog bark.
Here's the point: I have tried everything to kill these headaches when they arrive, and usually
I find something that works. But with every episode (I get one per day at 3 p.m. for about four weeks, usually every February)
it's something different. It used to be hot coffee, then it was three Goody's powders, then it was two powders and a cup of coffee.
Now, and I really am ashamed to admit it, I've found something that, at least for my last two headaches, wipes it out almost immediately ...
masturbating, believe it or not! I know, it's funny though I don't mean it to be. I swear, it has worked! Am I crazy? To be honest, I wouldn't care if I had to hop around on one
foot and sing the national anthem to get rid of the pain, I'd do it! But who'd have ever thought the answer was ... "OK, to get rid of the most
excruciating pain you can imagine, try sexually pleasing yourself." That's like saying, "Ok, to resurrect your dead mother, you must eat these steak and lobster dinner."
Please, no, don't force me!
Has anyone else had this experience? I just put my email address here, and I don't know if it's listed, but if it is, reply if you have any information.
Now I will go and at 2:34 p.m. tomorrow plan my next attack against this TMJ ... er ... sinusitis ... er ... cluster headache.
Thanks for the information!
