  1. Hello fellow Clusterheads! This community has been super helpful in helping me to discover ways to better manage my chronic cluster headaches. Thank you! I've been in a great place with my cluster headaches now for a little over a month- which is huge for me. But, I am noticing I am starting to get more frequent migraines. I do have both, but I really haven't had migraines in years. Has anyone else noticed that a period of decreased/diminished clusters can increase migraine?
  2. Has anyone ever tried antibiotics to treat cluster headaches? So, I thought I had sinus infections when I first started getting CH about 10 years ago. I wasn't diagnosed. I was in my 20's and I think my stepfather would get sinus infections so I came to the conclusion I had them too. I have none of the symptoms of sinus infections however, aside from the splitting headache. I also get migraines so I would confuse my CH for migraines, but the CH lasts for days, even about a week or longer. So I was going to a doctor about 1 every 2 months for these "weird headaches" other than my
  3. So, I started to get migraine headaches around the age of 12 or 14. My mom took me to the family doctor, who prescribed Vicodin and referred me to a neurologist. I took the Vicodin and immediately fell in love with it. I started to overuse them, running out early, and making excuses as to why they were gone. As I got older, my headaches got worse. In high school I started to buy drugs, and was in full blown heroin addiction by the age of 22. Around this time I got a car for my birthday, and while driving I nodded off and crashed it. I told everyone that I had swerved the car in order to avoid
  4. I'm pretty new to this migraine business, but since they started they're pretty frequent. Pain killers work, but they're short lived and do nothing to prevent the attack. Besides, i'm worried about what these medications do to my liver. I want to try and unconventional approach. I talked to some redditors and found out about this place. Someone mentioned microdosing shrooms would work. My biggest problem with my migraines is nausea. I can stand the pain, but nausea cripples me. I'm willing to try anything that works. So does anyone have experience/suggestions in what to give a try? Plus a guid
  5. Yesterday afternoon around 3:30 I started to get a cluster headache. I've been running low on Zomig nasal sprays and my insurance is refusing to cover them so I opted for chugging a Red Bull. This has worked from time to time. Anyways, the pain began to increase and after about an hour and a half I threw up several times from the pain. Another half hour went by and the cluster headache subsided and I was able to lie down instead of my usual pacing around the house/rocking back and forth/kicking the mattress. However, The pain behind my eye turned into a different kind of pain, different from t

  7. Hi Everyone, I've suffered from all types of headaches for a long time. I'm currently being treated for migraines. However, my headaches often present significant cluster symptoms. My doctors and I are having a hard time diagnosing the type of headaches I'm having and subsequently, how to treat them. I'm already on depakote for my bi-polar II. It doesn't have an effect. I've taken lithium and topiramate for my mental health and those also did not have an effect. I take treximet (sumatriptan and naproxen) as an abortive, and it usually works, but the side effects are miserable. ANY help, f
  8. Hey. I haven't posted much recently, but am still around. Guess my beast has gone on a bit of a holiday, and isn't troubling me much. Or it's been scared away by the nearly daily headaches and migraines. Actually, they are worse than that, getting 2-3 a day many days. Sometimes my head seems determined to not let me have a break. But hanging in there. Cannabis in the evenings is helping me sleep, which reduces the migraines so that most mornings, I only wake up with a headache and not a thumping migraine. I've even had entire days that were pain free, or nearly so. Am trying to c
