4 weeks ago my daughter Sue(13 years old) started to complain about severe pain above her left eye between the eye lid and eye brow. This pain is unbearable for her and lasts for between 1 and 5 minutes and then she feels totally exhausted for the next 20 minutes.The number of attacks have been as many as 14 a day.Currently its 3 a day normally always coming at night between 6pm and 11pm. For the last 4 weeks she complains of a constant background type headache also.
Oxygen helps shorten the attack and the doctor thinks its cluster headaches but is puzzled because she faints/passes out when the attack happens.It happens so quickly she just falls to the ground.Does this happen to anybody else with Cluster Headaches????
