Sorry you're going through this hell, but glad you found us.
You say you're not 'on anything'. You'd be a good candidate then for the water treatment or the shroom treatment. Both treatments are described in the buttons on the left: The Water x 3 button and then the shroom treatment in the headache links, then Alternative Cluster Headache Treatments. For some reason, both treatments work better if the user is not on any other meds.
My point, however, is to help you get through tonight maybe. My husband has had big success using Dramamine (or Gravol in Canada) to help him fall asleep and stay asleep, unattacked. You can get it at the drug store, without a prescription and it doesn't let you get into the REM phase of sleep, which is where the Beast will find you. Granted, you will be a little sleep deprived if you do this for days on end, but sometimes ANY sleep is better than none at all. Try it, you just might be one of the lucky ones.
Best of luck to you, Dawn.
