whether it's clusters or not, is ice. Apply an ice bag directly to the pain or lay it on the back of your neck. It chills the skin so fast that the brain gets busy sending signals to that area to warm it back up that it just might give you a break from the pain. Frozen peas also works well for this, because the bag is pliable and can be molded to the shape of your face.I'd sure keep seeing doctors until they give you a firm diagnosis but it really doesn't sound like cluster headaches (they're really not called cluster migraines, not unless you want to get attacked here!) if the pain is lasting that long.Take the cluster quiz, read the traits. Arm yourself when you go to the doc - you ARE your own best resource when it comes to your body.Good luck.Margi
