was diagnosed with cluster 12 years ago although all my life that I can remember getting them once a year for about six weeks. As a boy I found a way to ease the pain. Believe it or not it does help as weird as it sounds. I drop a hand towel in boiling water and when it is bearable enough to hold against my eye and head the scalding pain sort of takes away from the searing cluster pain. I am not suggesting you burn yourself but dealing with the heat seems for me a better option than the cluster. I know it sounds crazy but I believe we all have a "routine" in dealing with the pain and although it is by no means a cure, it certainly helps. I am totally convinced that there is no medication that stops the pain as the headaches go away after 20 minutes to half an hour, whether I take something or not
