I'm Colin, 35 YO male in the UK. I was diagnosed with cluster headaches last summer after 4 days in hospital being tested for brain tumours, meningitis and God knows what else. My cluster lasted 3 months, and since then, touch wood, I've been OK. I just wanted to say how emotional it was for me when I discovered this site last night. At last, people who know what it actually feels like. My partner was very sympathetic when I was in my cycle, but to be able to communicate with people who know what it feels like to wander aimlessly round the house with your eyes shut wailing like a zombie while your brain tries to escape through the front of your head. I don't really know why I'm writing this down, you all know what it's like, but it means a lot to me. Sounds silly, but I actually feel like crying right now. I've never spoken to anyone who suffers with clusters before. Thank you to whoever set this site up.
