Dear Monique-

First thing-------Don't call yourself a nut!!
We know what your going through. Has your
husband seen a Doctor? I know you posted before
but I don't remember what you said.

While these could be clusters it's unusal for
one to last beyond 2 hours. Typical attacks
are 30 to 45 minutes. While it is rare other
conditions need to be ruled out.

Possible triggers-------Alcohol, Chocolate,
Cheese or even medication.

When medication is not available or when I'm
waiting for the medication to work I do
a number of things------

Breath in cold or cool air.
Take a hot bath or shower.
Press in on my right temple OR place a tight
fitting cap on my head.
Use an ice pack for the top of my head and
a hot cloth for my neck.

The use of anti-histamines also helps.
