Well let's see. I'v had headaches since I was 9, Really bad ones, needed dark, quiet, I would cry, screem and throw up. My folks tried every test and exam known. I was finally diagnosed with Migranes. No drugs worked, finally my dad started putting me on Excdrine max strength, the adult dose, I was so small for my age that they knocked me out, that was relief at least. They have continued all my adult life, with other headache types along the way. Sinus headaches, that most strong sinus drugs take away, And these, cluster headaches, that I have never heard a name for before this. I always thought that these late night, head throbbing, need space, need clam, no loud thumps or noise, headaches were somehow not quite migranes. Noone other then my husband knows of the crawling, crying, head clutching, and wanting to die. I am releived to hear that I am not crazy. Someone else posted about symptoms such as coughing and sneezing adding to the pain. When I am in a bout of one of these, I hold off coughing or sneezing untill it is no longer bearable and then when I finaly give way to the need, I cry out in agony. This SUCKS!!!!!! and I know it kills my husband. My last bout was this last spring early summer sometime, I'm guessing, And it only lasted a few days. I'm not quite sure when they started because like I said, I thought they were all the same, Migranes.
Other drugs I've tried, Ercaff, worked ok for migranes. attenollol (sp eeeeek) wouldn't touch one of these. and Imitrex, that killed the head but wacked out my back and neck big time, this was not injections however, I'll have to loook into those.
Well thanks for careing.
