My brother and I have fought the BEAST for 30 years. The best pain abatement/reducer we have found is SNORTING cayenne pepper...just a SMALL amount on the end of a flat toothpick,small pocket knife, or snort thru a straw. Yes it does BURN for 8-10 seconds and sounds terrible/crazy but it is 70-80% effective in stopping the pain or 80-90% effective in greatly reducing the pain. Another high percentage "helper" if you catch the cluster soon enough is a fireball jawbreaker placed on the effective side. My doctor knows I do both.
