One of her ex-classmates pushed her against a heater at school. That was about one year ago.
Since then she has about one attack a week (right now about one each day). Always at the same place on her head.
Since the accident she has seen many doctors who first thought that it wouldn't be a real headache, like my cousin would just THINK she had such a bad headache, and that it is caused by the shock of the accident. But her parents didn't believe that and finally found the doctor who diagnosed this.
Unfortunately here in Germany they just know how to treat adults (she's the only child who has this, another one died) who have this and now we try to find doctors who also treat children.
Her symptoms do coincide with those in the Cluster Quiz and it was diagnosed be a neurologist.
Hmmm... I dunno what kind of meds she's on right now. But it seems as if she wouldn't be able to take them much longer.... She's feeling worse right now and had to throw up blood the day before yesterday! They've tried all kinds of meds so far, but either she was allergic to them or they didn't help.
I'm going to ask about the meds she's on right now. I'll visit her this weekend. She's in hospital.
I'll let you know about it!!
