1. "have they ever heard of cluster headache?" if not, tell her to have them get their uninformed asses on this site right now and do some research. if the answer is between a grunt and a nod, same response.
2. if so, "what are the symptoms?" take any of the excellent descriptions of a cluster headache attack on this site. DJs intro page springs to mind. if the doctors fail to describe the symptoms you find here ... see number 1 above.
3. after 1 and 2 are answered to her satisfaction (meaning the doctor now can compare her pain to ours) then ask "do you think i have cluster headache?"
only then ... and not until then ... should she let them put anything smaller than a football into her nose.
my non-medical opinion ...
