Hello everyone. I have just found this great site. After many years of struggling with this condition, I am now able to get more info on it. I started having them at age 20, and at that time thought I was having a stroke. I have seen several docs who were unable to put their finger on what was wrong. I ha Migraine, stress/tension headaches etc etc. My own GP diagnosed them as Clusters a couple of years ago. I am in the middle of a cluster at present, having gone 2 years pain free, and I am finding it hard. My main concern is the medication I am on. I am taking strong painkillers (Coproxamol) but feel I am having to take too many, and am unhappy with their effectiveness, I will be visiting him again to see if any of the medications I have found on the net would be effective. Lets face it, you would try ANYTHING to alleviate the suffering. I am walking about feeling sick, tired and stressed because of this, and to be honest it ruins my life when it is here. Feel fine as I post having fought another episode this evening. Thanks for listening, and for giving me the chance to share with others in a similar situation.
