I'm 17 and started with my headaches when I was 3. I have typical chronic cluster headaches....droopy left eye lid, dilated pupil, unilateral eye pain, sweating, wake at night. My headaches come on suddenly and last between 4 days and six weeks. I used to have them 3 or four times a year but they seem to be changing now and I have them much more frequently...about every 3 or 4 weeks and they last for between 3 and 6 days (touch wood I haven't had a really long one since last year). I am also starting to experience sickness and occasionally flashing lights. I am on half-inderal and Imigran.Don't help very often. I used Sanomigran effectively but the side effects were bad.
Anyone else start as young as me?
