I have been battling these clusters for 7 years now. They used to hurt more than anything (and they still do sometimes). But I have found something to take away the pain every single time. INTENSE EXCERCISE! As we all know these things tend to attack while we are sleeping (but not exclusively). There tends to be a very small "window" before the pain becomes unbearable (maybe 5-10 minutes). WHat I have done for the past 4 years is leave a jump rope beside the back door and when I feel an attack coming on in the middle of the night I go and jump rope on the back porch BEFOR ETHE PAIN BECOMES UNBEARABLE. What I have found is that the excercise stops the pain in its tracks and within 10-20 minutes the pain is gone every time! HAS ANYONE ELSE EVER HEARD OF THIS? HAS ANYONE ELSE EVER TRIED THIS? PLEASE RESPOND!!! WHAT WORKS FOR YOU?
