This is my first time posting here.
My partner Dan suffers from cluster headaches. His cycles vary a lot and sometimes they last a few weeks up to a few months.
Recently he started trying alternative methods but he's still trying to figure out doses and amounts - but let's leave this for another time.
My question is if anyone else who has cluster headaches has the same pre symptoms he has...
Right before a new cycle starts, Dan has days when he feels extremely depressed, empty and sometimes enrage. A few days later he has his first episode of the new cycle.
Even now, with his alternative "medication" which subdues the intensity of his episodes, he still has these dark moments.
He only realised there's a correlation between this negative thoughts preceding his cycles maybe a year or two ago, but before that, for the 12 years he's been suffering from cluster headaches, he always had them.
As I haven't read anything about this so far, I was wondering if anyone experienced them before and so, how do you deal with them? These moments with dark thoughts really distress him.
