it's going on 11pm, i'm afraid to even try to sleep, because i know it's there, lurking in the backround of the right side of my head. But i get so drowsy from the meds i'm on, that i eventually fall asleep, and wake up in intense pain, early in the a.m., pretty much 3am and again at 7am. It's so hard to live with it sometimes. A week ago the pain was so intense, i almost purposely went under the water in the bathtub. Finally my husband (and myself) convinced me to go in and see the Dr. Always seems to happen every fall... Anyways, Dr. put me on predisone, smz/tmp (anti-bio) and Zyrtec. But i'm still waking up with clusters, only once a night, instead of 2-3x a night. I am very happy I found a site on these, because i really need a place to go to, where people understand the pain. Thanks for the space.
