I have found various methods of coping with severe episodes, however not all techniques work every time. Just wish to share my experiences, and hopefully help someone else.It is so great knowing that others understand what a devastating thing cluster headaches are.My last series lasted from March until mid July, and I lost 40lbs.With assistance from my G.P., and an expert neurologist on severe headaches I tried various pharmaceuticals, some had unpleasant side effects,I was desperate for releif even if it almost killed me.I am now in remission. I have found that a combo of approaches worked for me.Relaxation through holistic methods proved to be of important benefit, without the side effects of the drugs.I still needed the drugs for a while,but by combining both methods, I was using fewer drugs with each passing day.It helps to keep a diary of how one copes,for future use when the next episode resurfaces.
