Does anybody else experience the euphoria that comes with the passing of a cluster headache. Especially, the morning cluster headache that wakes you up. After taking a vicodin and pacing the living for 30 minutes the pain goes away. As the pain is going away, there is about a ten minute state that is better than any drug I have tried, legal or illegal.

Now for the part that will get everybody crazy. I love those ten minutes of eurphoria. The disappearance of pain, sleepiness and narcotic buzz is great. It gets me through my headache.

I find I can abort a cluster headache and reduce it's duration too about 45 minutes to an hour by taking vicodin. Somedays I take 1 pill, some days I take 4 pills and eventually I won't take any pill. That is, until my cycle of hell starts all over again.

Take care
