But your post doesn't tell us much.
You say headaches are a warning sign that is true about some headaches. They are signs of a stroke, high blood pressure etc...
Yet you talk about pain control. Pain control is a good thing. Learning to deal with the pain is great, I know and use a lot of pain control technics myself. These technics have helped reduce my pain but never took the clusters away from me. They always come back.
You said you don't have as many tention headaches when using pain technics my tention headaches do subside. Pain control reliefes tention and when tention is gone the headache is gone.
Clusters are different. You went out of cycle a year ago. Most cycles come every year to every two to three years. I hope you never have another cycle of clusters but I am afraid they will be back for you. I am chronic so I don't know what it is really like to go a year with out pain.
I do believe you think you are cured and I understand that, but its not been enough time to say this has relieved your clusters Pain just yet.
It would be nice to know some of these pain control technics.
I would also like to know what the four things you learned were in regards to the headaches factor.
Please tell us more in more detail.
