Clusterheads know the relief in finding this site...since we have so many times been mis-diagnosed and never understood. Help for what ails a Clusterhead lies on the screen before you at this site. Check it out.
My opinions are:
Trauma causing Clusters? Not the norm here but it does seem to occur. I am one of those.
The worst pain ever: Bingo
Women get Clusters.
Length of a CH: ...1/2 hour to a couple of hours seems the norm...BUT...that has caused a lot of debate here, since some report LOOOONG bouts.
Painkillers:...Imitrex NOT touching it ,is unusual...but then again...nothing works for all of us...not good news huh?
Benadryl helping: Some swear by it.
Having toured this whole site: That is saying a mouthful. The archives are over 2 years long and contain a multitude of hidden pearls. The search engine doesn't work as well as I would like...but...it's what it is.
Keeping a journal of events is an excellent idea. Though it's often frustrating cause this demon wants to dance to noones plans. But it may help identify a trigger or a relief valve which is common to you. Then you post that on this board...and someone agrees and you may help someone else...and/or someone takes you out back and beats the hell out of you. (see Nancy's post about the Mule).
If this site helps you "know what is wrong with you"...be it CH or not...send DJ a kiss.
