In Reply to: Has anyone ever found excercise to help abort the pain? posted by Ty on December 14, 2001 at 21:58:32:
I have had cluster headaches for many years. I have used the trial and error method to experiment and had discovered exercise can make them go away just like you. What I later discovered and now use is to run for 35 minutes ever other day and I have been able to eliminate them compleatly. I also drink alot of water. For the most part I have been better for over 2 years. There was one time I got lazy for a couple of weeks and did't run and they started to come back. Now I make sure I take my running medicine and drink alot of water and I am just fine. Perhaps any excercise like jumping rope for the 35 minutes every other day may work also. I also have discovered certain foods like chocolate or smoked foods can aggravate the headaches.
One note: In the beggining the running aggravated them for the first week or two.
