Hi there from another UK sufferer. Sorry you had to
find us, but you're in the right place.

If you're using Imigran tabs, take at the first sign;
they take a long while to work (relatively speaking),
but with the jabs, you can afford to wait a little
to see if the attack is going to become full-blown.
Are you on any preventatives?

I was puzzled by your comment about your GP - surely he is
the one who should do the referring. Do you mean the
time lag before getting an appointment? If so, I know that
one or two here have had success by getting in touch with
Queen's Square in London direct (they're the place that knows best
what we're at!). Get in touch, and I'll dig out the
address etc.

If your bout only lasted a week, you're one of the
lucky ones, not that it would seem it at the time,
but do make sure you take the cluster quiz to check
that your GP diagnosed it correctly - they're not
omniscient, particularly wrt clusters!
