not being able to move and headaches that last all day sound more like migraines and are much more common in kids than clusters. Has a neuro actually diagnosed him and treated him for clusters? The reason I ask is not to chase you away, yet more to find proper treatment for your son. Different headaches need different treatments. Have you taken the Cluster Quiz on his behalf?Go to the OUCH website and check out the Cluster Resources page - there is a great page there about headaches in children.Please be careful giving him meds and have him tested by a qualified neuro - get him an MRI or a CAT scan, read everything you can about migraines before you get him treated for clusters.Hope this helps.Margi
