ice for a clusterhead


Several years ago I was diagnosed with cluster headaches after years of suffering.  The latest cluster cycle has begun and I've been ramming ice into my eye, even though it doesn't help.  Today I was hit repeatedly by one attack after another.  If I make it through four or so weeks of agony, I should be home free until the cluster starts again next year.

that sucks! i just read the wikipedia entry on it and it seems really bad if the first sentence says "most prominent feature, an immense degree of pain" and that women say it's worse than childbirth. geez!

Wow Rachel - I never knew you suffered from these. I'd never actually heard of them before but they sound TERRIBLE! How long have you had these?
