I have clusters and so did my uncle. He was so bad and no medicine was working (which is the case for most of us). I recently was diagnosed and he shared much info. He said many years ago when he had headaches, nothing worked, but he went to this amazing doctor in NYC, the guy was a genuis he said. The doc took him off of all his meds and gave him an intense diet. He couldnt find the exact diet for me but he said that things high in salt and sugar were bad. Stay away from processed foods, focus on fresh veggies. DOn't overload on the carbs, look for foods high in the proteins. He said after a few weeks he was no longer getting the pains. 20 years later he swears by it. I have not tried it yet, but i think that i will. Another plus was that he lost weight.

he also told me, something i have trouble believing, when a CH is coming on, get ice place itonyour temple and down caffeine. He swore by it
