According to my calculations there are at least 100,000 "Women" with clusters. I'd prefer to call them special and not odd. Well, I knew a couple that were a little odd but that's a story for another day.
Drugs are and have been the best treatment for clusters. It is true that many drugs do not work for many people and it is a trial and error method. Sometimes a long and very painful method. But, as time goes by we are finding more and better ways of treating clusters with drugs. Some of them have been mentioned in this thread already. There was a listing of Resources a week of so ago on this board that will allow you to find out the latest research on all these drugs. If you'd like to take a shortcut, by all means, write to me.
As to what works besides drugs, there are things that "help" but in most cases they are most helpful when used in conjunction with medications.
There are things, with research to back it up, such as breathing cold air during an attack, Magnesium infusion or pills, Melatonin, Vitamin B2 (you may consider all of these drugs??) or surgery.
Now, answer this. How much of that corn whiskey had you consumed when you wrote that post?
