While at the doc's one day I described a headache to him(I
thought was a migraine) and he said "you have cluster headaches!"
A type of headache I had never heard of prior to his statement.
Amongst the forms of headache I get, this particular type starts
generally with "fortification spectra" ( lovely dazzling
colored lights that look like the tops of castles surounding
my visual field in both eyes; this causes tunnel vision
then usually after an hour or so of not being able to see
I get this piercing pain in one spot in my head, my nose
runs and my head throbs. It can last a hour or more.
It does not incapacitate me with pain like you poor folks out there
so I question if in fact this is a true cluster headache.
Any ideas?
