I am a Cluster wife. I suffer from migraines, but I cannot imagine the excrutiating pain my husband is going through. My husband wants to believe his pain will go away on its own, but I know better. I must wait until the end of this cycle comes.
He is newly diagnosed, and I find what is helpful is to provide him with information. I do the research, set bookmarks, and then email him so he can read what I find. He has found this very helpful.
Also, my husband won't call the doctor often enough or report all the symptoms because he does not recognize them as being related. I have started watching and writing down what times he gets his headaches. With this information, I was able to tell the doctor that he always gets one exactly one hour after going to sleep. I also told the doctor about the sinus congestion on the affected side. This helped the doctor make a diagnosis. My husband is worried about taking time off work to talk to the doctor because he does not want to lose his job. He is willing to go the doctor, but I make the appointments for him.
Email me if you want. I will let you know anything that helps I we go through this.
