Speaking from someone who has had the episodic cluster since age 20 ( going on my 7th year) and who also gets migraines occasionally...neither one are any fun. ALthough yes, I would take a migraine over a cluster any day, migraines can last for days which is also pretty nasty. Somehow it's probably all connected. Imitrex, Zomig, Maxalt were all first used for migraine and I see these do help some people on the board with cluster. I feel for anyone who has either of these headache disorders.
Yes it does bother me though when the doctor tries to treat me for migraine instead of cluster, I like you know the difference and wish they could understand it to.
