    Just got diagnosed

    Hi guys, I was diagnosed with Cluster Headaches about a week ago and have been on Verapamil and Sumatriptane ever since. I started having these headaches about a month ago and my diagnosis was only just confirmed last week. The headaches occurred once every 5 to 6 days at the start but ever since I started taking these pills, I've been having one every day. The pain is on the right side of my head, my right eye starts to tear up and becomes visibly red, and sometimes my right nostril get's runny too. I've heard people say that the pain is unbearable but the first headache I had would be an 8 (on a pain scale) and the subsequent ones ave gradually declined in intensity but they've also gotten longer. My last headache lasted two hours while the very first one I had lasted only 20 minutes. Right now the pain would be at a 5. I'm not sure if I have a high pain tolerance or I'm just one of the lucky ones (some luck huh). I would appreciate any advice I can get.

  3. After multiple trips to the doctor and ER for headaches and a clean CT scan, my neurologist diagnosed CH. She said that my eye swelling and pain were indicative of CH (actually, she said Horton's Syndrome). My eyes hurt 100% of the time, and the headaches come and go (2-3 times per weeks) but always leave their shadow. I haven't seen any posts where someone refers to this eye pain. I have large swellings under both eyes that are bruised, red and raw, and my eyelids are extremely swollen, but not red and raw. So, I guess I have two questions. Is this eye condition related to CH? And, if so, has anyone found something to relieve the pain? Thank you in advance. It is so nice to have a place to go to ask my questions. Angie
