Iam a doctor and a C.H. sufferer so my sympathy with you lot is doubled!!!!!At some stage during my cluster I TOOK REFUGE IN THIS SITE AND IT WAS ONLY MESSAGES OF ENCOURAGEMENT WHICH KEPT ME GOING SPECIALLY THAT OF Mary from surrey.Iam now in remission since October.Ithink every one must try Sumatriptan injection for the acute attack.for prophylaxis Iam not as yet sure if anything will help but oral steroids starting at 70 mg or so and decreasing every third day by 5 mg does work and help to interrupt the cluster.
WHAT SO EVER YOUR PAIN IT IS GOING TO GO AWAY AT LEAST FOR A WHILE.MAKE SURE THAT THOSE AROUND YOU UNDERSTAND THE CONDITION AND THE SEVERITY AND DONT BE SHY TO CRY WHEN YOU NEED TO!WHEN YOUR HEADACHE IS AWAY ENJOY LIFE TO THE LIMIT.BY THE WAY GIVING UP SMOKING IS NOT A BAD IDEA.BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU.IWILL COME BACK
