I was diagnosed ~ 4 yrs ago. It took about 7 months of treatment before it "went away"...................4 weeks ago "Mr.Cluster" as I call it, :) came back. My neurologists told me back then that it could come back in a month, a yr, or in 10 yrs. In the meantime I suffered the worst night in this 4 week period......4 clusters between 11PM-9AM. The initial combinations of pill form medications are not working and I see my neurologists in a few days to try another "recipe" in hope it's the 1. In the meantime, thanks to THIS site I discovered 2 days ago that imitrex came in shot form ( I tried it 4 yrs ago in spray form but suffered very bad nauseau) and I requested it today and used it for the 1st time this evening (got rid of Mr Cluster in about 5 min vs. suffering w/ pills any where between 30-2hrs to go away). So far, so good. I pray that the next "recipe" of pill form medications my neurologist tries is successful.
I thank all to have found this useful info
