Welcome, though sorry for the reasons you had
to come here.
Your general description does have the ring of
cluster headaches to it. I would suggest you
try the link to left side of this board that
will help you determine if you do suffer CH.
Then also see a neurologist (if you saw my post above...that's frustration) but, they CAN at
least diagnose. You want to make sure to have an
MRI to rule out other possibilities such as brain
I imagine you'll get plenty of responses here.
Remember to realize what works for some, doesn't
work for another. This is very common to CH sufferers. Hang around though Ron, you will learn
much. The first thing you'll find, is at least a
relief in knowing that there are others who DO
understand the pain. Hard to believe, but...yes
we do! You'll find several here in this site that
are very knowledgable about different meds, some
with alternative treatments, many with ways to cope during attacks..etc...
We're all here to share with each other, you can vent your anger, express your frustration, share
some hope, laugh and cry. We're all in this together. Feel free to e-mail me, or for that matter anyone in here, you will not be alone.
This is a unique group of caring people. This is
where I find my strength, and I'm sure you will
too. If we can't ease the physical pain, we can
at least support and understand. Stick around,
and join in with questions or thoughts.
Hope you have a pain free day,
