In Reply to: Could this be cluster headaches. What do you all think? posted by roses on April 10, 2001 at 19:03:31:
I don't think a diagnosis of cluster headache should be dis-counted because your not crawling around on the flo or from pain. I also don't think that your accou nt of being used to it is a diagnostic criteria either . We, to some extent get used to the fact that we are facing horrible pain everyday , but to get used to how horrible it gets...that's another thing entirely, at least personally speaking. The cyclical nature and durration of your attacks makes me wonder if CH might be a possibility. If you do have Ch, there are much better meds to abort than ibuprofen. You didn't mention if the ibuprofen helped or not. Lots of it can eat away at your stomach lining .
Rose, if you look to the left at the links click on the OUCH site, there you can maybe find a dr. that is listed that might be able to help you in your area.
Good luck to you R ose.
