" With clusters, Dr. Kudrows believe only if you suffer headaches severe enough to the point of disabling you and not allowing you to work would he then consider you to have Cluster headaches."
Are you saying that Dr Kudorw is said that the pain of CPH is less than that of CH? This view goes against every single bit of information I`ve ever read about CPH.
There is no difference in intensity of pain (in general) between CPH and CH and the only difference between them is amount of attacks per day.
I know all this because I have CPH and it`s been proven by the 100% effectivness of Indomethacin. My headaches have all but vanished since I started taking these little blue capsules and to my knowledge,these little capsules are the ONLY way to prove if you have CPH or not.
Dispite what Dr. Kudrow believes,my constant parade of headaches were horrible and I wasnt able to do much of anything during the attacks. Driving,Looking at the computer,and any type of work was impossible.
My advice to you is that you look around the web a bit for more info on CPH and dont base everything on this website or what Dr. Kudrow has to say. No offense to this website or OUCH,but theres a lot more info on CPH out there than either of these sites mention.
It was MY own constant snooping around the web that figured out I had CPH. I got little help form my neuro or the headache quiz and info at the left of this page.
