I have some info that I was hoping someone could use, or expand on.

I'm in the (hopefully) ending stages of a cluster right now. This is my 3rd cluster that I've really had to pay attention to. They start around Thanksgiving and have in the past ended some time in April.

Once thing I've noticed about my own behavior is that I typically work out 3 times a week from April to November. Usually at the beginning of November I get burned out and stop hitting the gym. A few weeks later the cluster starts and I'm on a death spiral. Once the cluster begins I don't go to the gym at all.

This cluster was the same. I haven't been to the gym since November.

Also, sometime when I start to feel a headache come on I'll do fifty pushups, or fire off as many pull-ups as I can, and sometimes (if I was able to do get off some brisk exercise before it hit) I can ward off the attack before it gets really bad.

Has anyone else had any experiences similar to mine?

Once I start the Verap it gets harder and harder to hit the gym.

Going to try the water thing, and come hell or high water, I'm working out today.
