Several years ago I was suffering from headaches daily that my neurologist diagnosed as "icepick" headaches. She said there wasn't much she could do for me but that I should stay out of sressful situations. At the time I was in a very stressfull situation. The headaches slowed down considerably once I changed my situation but I still get them to this day. I don't seem to suffer all the symptoms of cluster headaches. For instance, when I get an icepick headache, I can be walking and all of a sudden I feel like I have an icepick driving into my head 5 or 6 times. Then it stops altogether.
Can anyone tells me if this is a Cluster Headache?
