Our experience with the ER was positive, but unfortunately, many people don't have that experience. My husband visited the ER 5 times within 2 weeks prior to being prescribed imitrex...he was given toradol, oxygen, demerol (once), but often the headache had begun to subside by the time we got there (1/2 hour drive). The docs and nurses were quite sympathetic, actually. Sorry your experience was so unpleasant...the medical field has a lot to learn about treating cluster headache patients!
