The Pain, is completely unbearable....I started to get headaches 4 years ago. I should be kinda greatful, I haven't have one now for two years, until last friday. That is when they started again.
I didn't find out until yesterday, at the emergency room, that it was cluster headaches. I have seen numerous doctors, and they kept telling me that there was nothing that they could do for me, because by the time I arrived to the doctor, and actually got in to see them, the pain had subsided.
The pain is so intense, in my right temple, my eye almost closes completely, and water will pour out. I have tried almost every migraine med out there, and nothing will break the cycle. I have to see a neurologist, in a few days, until then I have been put on prednisone 50mg to help with the pain. But that only help for a while, I am still 5 hours away before I can take another one, and I have already had 2 attacks.
Me,like, many others are dreading what not the next day will bring, but what the next couple of ours will bring.
Upon finding this website, I know that I can express my pain, to others, who will know what I mean.
