I have suffered with Cluster headaches since I was 17 yrs old. I am now 31. I get them btwn Dec and March and every other day. (i have kept a journal) I read everyday and keep up on what we can do to prevent sure pain for us sufferers. We need a cure! I dont wish this pain on my worst enemy.
Recenlty my headaches have come back. Last year was the first year I dodnt get more than one headache. This past week, I have had 3 in a row, piercing pain associated in the eye, forehead and spasims.
If there is anyone out there, if there are people who know what I and others are going through, please understand how serious these are. The pain. Its "suicide headaches".
I walk on egg shells everyday, scared that I will get a headache. I have excedrin ready to be popped in my mouth everyday when I wake. This isnt the way to live.View Thread
