Morning Clusters are the worst (?)

Hi all,

My clusters came back after 9 months of remission :(

During this cycle, I've noticed one disturbing trend (as if CH's weren't disturbing enough!)

If I get a CH first thing in the morning, like 6 or 7AM, they seem to last FOREVER. Like today, I got a headache at 6:30AM, and it didn't really go away until after 9:30. This sucks! 3 hours of excrutiating pain. I took a Percodan after the first 30 min, but it didn't get rid of it, just dull it a bit. I was finally able to go to sleep at about 9:30, and when I awoke I could still feel it like a shadow (but luckily no pain).

Has anyone seen anything like this? I get clusters at other times, too, but they never last nearly as long. My neuro has me on Sansert and Verapamil, and that seems to keep them away for all but 2-3 times per week.

Thanks in advance for any insight.
