my first cluster headache was nov. 27, 1990, the day I turned 30. 10 years later, sigh, i've still got 'em. i've missed 2 years in 10. this year is particularly bad. they started the week before xmas and i'm still clustering. ergocaf always works when "the switch" goes off. i just hate taking it. (better than the alternative, I guess.)

prior to the current cluster cycle i had gone 18 months without a headache. for the last cycle, my neurologist prescribed prednisone to "blow the headaches away". it did. for 18 months anyway. this time the prednisone didn't seem to work. i didn't get one while i was on them, but the day after i stopped, guess who came back?

i just popped my first verapamil. a calcium channel blocker according to cp.gsm.com. i hope it works. i'm back on prednisone too. maybe we'll blow these suckers away, again...
