these also need someons atention.
I just found your website. It is really helpful to know that others suffer the same agony that I do. I have suffered from CH for about 13 yrs although I got a break for the last 4-5 yrs with no pain. Just when I thought they were gone they came back. Fortunately I only get one attack every couple of days. The pain seems more intense this time. As I have yet to find anything that helps with the pain, the information on your page is great. I now have some new things to try. Thanks.

I am having another attack. i would do anything not to have these anymore, anything. this is my third eposide. my attacks started seven and a half years ago. seriousley thought i had a tumor behind my right eye. the doctor put me on codine for the pain, becouse he was a family friend and he did know the history of my mother migranes. after visiting an opthmalogist then a neurologist i was diaganosed with cluster headaces. the pain had gone away before i was prescribed anything. two years laterit came back i was prescribed imitrex injections (miracle drug). made it through that episode okay until i ran out of injections.i just wanted to die. now it is that time again another two and a half years and its back. do have my miracle drug (imitrex) but the beast is visiting me more often this time and i can only take so much in a 24 hour period. great site. first time visiter and finding it very informative. now i am going to try the O2 for the attacks at night and when i am at home. saving the shots to keep on living in the outside world(going to work etc.).thanks for the info, i will return.

I get cluster headaches every two years (for the past ten years). Typically in the spring (but this year also in August), about every 2-4 days and typically in the first REM phase of sleep.

The suckers started when I was 18. Thought some invisible apprentice carpenter was trying out a 20mm drill bit on the back of my eye and my front teeth below it.Then 20yrs later they bring Imitrex to NZ. Cost the taxpayer $85NZ per jab. Cost me just $15. Stick that needle in my flesh, watch the clock count 90secs and feel my 'friend' just slide out my face. No-one but a clusterhead can know the heaven of a cluster headache just sliding out your face.Today,(5 yrs later) got a new lot of jabs for my latest round.$15NZ for six shots. We may not be a world economic power but the powers that be in NZ take care of their cluster heads. I thank God for them.
