Dear Cluster Heads round the world
Help me to create a poem, that describes our fait.
Several years ago I had an unbearable pain.
I thought I was becoming insane.
In desperation I went to my GP.
He said take this and we will see.
I taught it helped because the pain subsided.
It came back 2 weeks later unbidden.
The pains still had no name.
I thought I was Insane.
I was given another lot of medication.
I took them in desperation.
Two weeks no pain,
I am not insane.
Again in unbearable pain,
Went to see my GP again
I told him I had my teeth checked
I also had my eye pressure checked.
So I was sent to the T.N.E. (Throat, nose and ear specialist)
He found an abnormality.
From birth my write nose cannel was deformed.
Wanted to operate so that it would be reformed.
I did not like the idea.
I never had problems you see.
So en exray of my syneses was made.
These were in excellent state.
So back to my GP again.
I said this pain is driving me insane.
He said I want a CAT scan,
We will see what we will do then.
Luckily I was in no pain the day of the scan.
Can you imagine the sound of the had bang?
On the scan they saw nothing,
In the mean time I was still suffering.
So I finally came to see the neurologist you see,
In the mean time I was quiet depressed and angry.
He asked doe you get a sagging eye, a runny nose,
sweat on the forehead or a small pupil and a clogged up nose?
The diagnosis Cluster Headache.
