I am nearing the end of my clusters. Actually I am hoping that this is it, but I am afraid to say it out loud. I found this site a few weeks ago and I have been checking it quite often. It is overwhelming the number of new "guests" that write each day. I tend to isolate myself at home for the month when the attacks start, so I am feeling a bit lonely and in need of contact with others, but with others that can actually understand what these weeks have been like. I have tried so many medications over the last 20 years, at times swearing that I would never take any more or see another doctor. Then I tried Imitrex. It helped me cope, I could get through the headaches without crying and throwing up. But I started to react to the injections. Last year I tried Maxalt and it worked great. This year it didn't work. So I tried Zomig. It works 50% of the time. Do others have the same problem? When I think I find something that will help it is like the clusters change so I have to keep trying something else. It feels like a battle and I have to keep changing my strategy to just cope, forget about ever winning this fight. Thanks for being here, at least I know I am not alone.
