This is so sad. I feel for your mother and for you also. It is hard to see someone else suffer.
There are clinics that do treat cluster as well as migraine, but no one has ever given any of them
a glowing recommendation. Still, I think, personally, it would be worth a try.
I know Dr. Diamond at his clinic in Chicage does treat CH specifically and has success with some people.
Is Demerol the only abortive she has? It does not work for me - not even for an abscessed tooth or childbirth. It dulls the pain somewhat but not entirely.
Does your mother apply heat or cold to her head with any success?
You didn't mention breathing pure oxygen. I have not tried it, but some swear by it as an abortive.
Do tell you mother about this site. We would like to welcome her and give her any support possible.
