Hi all ,
Finally i found a site that knows how it feels to live with this crippling pain , i have suffered with chronic cluster headaches for 16 years now and finally after being told be various Doctors that the pain was everthing from growing pains to wisdom teeth I have been diagnosed as suffering from Chronic Cluster headaches , after the first 15 years i thought i was going mad , nobody listened until i managed to finally get a doctor to send me to a neurologist who gave me CT scans and blood tests and in about one hour confirmed what i already suspected. I am no using Imigran Injections for the pain but am concerned with the doseage levels i can take , i have attacks every night with varing levels of intensity and am trying only to use the injections in the worst last resort cases. I have read all of the literature you have on your site and have learned alot from it , and i am wondering if anyone with the chronic attacks has found any other treatments to calm the attacks.
Hope you are all well as i type this ,
