I had migraines called 'cluster migraines' in my right temple from age 26 till age 46. They were random and on and off like 4 or 5 times a day for a month and then quiet for 2 or 3 months. Then, they miraculously went away. Now I am 62 and after a bout with the flu 3 weeks ago I have been having strong attacks of cluster migraines again. I remember back in my younger days that always after the flu I would have the headaches on and off for a month. I had them otherwise at random times, but always after the flu. I haven't had flu symptoms for years, and then when I did just recently, here came the migraines. I am confidant that soon they will be gone!View Thread
