Yes, sorry to say, I get them. IF you’re not completely hip on what it is, here is the wikipedia’s definition of it:

“Cluster headaches are rare, extremely painful and debilitating headaches that occur in groups or clusters. They may also be described as suicide headaches, a reference to the excruciating pain and resulting desperation that has culminated in actual suicide.”

Inhaling oxygen through an inhaler thingy does help with the pain, unfortunately, not many people can afford it. Our friend “Anthony Amabel” is a good example of that.

What will i do to change it? I will blog about it and hope that people read it!!!!

Hi everyone. I am Pablo and I am a cluster headache victim. I said victim because I don’t know what to do, I not under my control and life is bad becouse of it, sometimes.
I heard about ‘clustertab”
It works?

Is expensive?
Somebody can, please, answer my questions?
I hope you, guys, still doing this forum, I really need to know more about my disease.
Thank you.

Hi Pablo,
I am a new “victim” also…so far…I lay sideways on an ice pack. I’m sorry you are part of this 🙂

But don’t let something like this ruin your life. Do what you can under your “control” and seek a great support team.

You must remember that you control your actions pain or not. Foolish actions cause nothing but trouble.
I read with my other eye while laying on the side that hurts until I fall asleep.
Sometimes if I act quickly enough Aspirin(3) will make it less severe.

Marry an Brittish girl is my advice!
You get free O2, free imigrin injections and free access to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery!
I’ve had this for 11 years and, had I owned a gun I would of shot myself in the head on more than 1 occassion!
If you’re in the UK, don’t rest untill your GP has refered you to the above hospital. If he won’t refer you, change surgeries! It’s NHS so it’s free!
There’s hope my friends!!!

hi there… I’ve been having this cluster headache for quite sometime already (20 years maybe) & I noticed that you can prevent the pain (not all the time tho)

Normally what i do is i’ll keep track of each attacks. The key things to take note is the ‘FREQUENCY of THE ATTACKS’, from the data if you plot a graph it will turn into a ‘bell’ shape/curve & beside that you need to ‘KNOW the CYCLE’ of these attacks. In my case the attacks normally last between 1 ~ 2 weeks & these cycle will repeats it self every year (sometime longer)

The other thing to take note is the ‘SYMPTOM’ of how/what do you feel(s) each time before the attacks, form me I’ll normally feels this sensation at my shoulder (right side) similar to stiff-neck which slowly moves towards my head.

With these knowledge what i do is each time when the CYCLE is about to start I’ll take Proponolol according to my doctor it helps you relax (ask your doctor, that’s what my Doctor prescribe me) & whenever I noticed the SYMPTOM, I’ll take a painkiller (PONSTANT/IMIGRANT) by doing this I escape the pain.

Hiya!! Im a cluster sufferer for 2yrs. Might not seem like much, but dealing with this pain almost everyday it feels like it. I really was moved by your cluster art work. Truely it captures what we all feel!!

Hi Pete

My wife and I are both British/English and there is no proven treatment for cluster headaches so marrying a British womam and overburdening the NHS will simply not work, very irresponsible of you to surgest it

i had suffered from cluster headaches for several years before I discovered what was ailing me. Last year I was in the middle of a cycle tat was 1-3 a day for 3 months in a row. LSD has provided me with total and absolute relief. It disrupted the cycle entirely, and I haven’t had a headache in the last 8 months. I can’t begin to explain the amount of relief it had provided me. I was very skeptical before trying this method, and glad I was. I was personally comfortable with the experience enough that i would consider it again if i find myself in another horrible cycle. Check out what peoples experiences are
