MARLBOROUGH - It's been called the worst kind of pain known to the medical world.

One patient describes it as “a red-hot ice pick going into your temple.”

It's not a migraine. TheyÂ’re called cluster headaches and cause excruciating pain around the eye. Attacks often occur without warning and the pain can strike as much as eight times per day for 15 minutes to an hour at a time.

Jason Cameron, 44, of Marlborough has been suffering from cluster headaches for over 10 years. He gets 200 attacks a day. Each attack lasts between a few seconds to a minute.

Later this month, Cameron and his wife will travel to Washington D.C. with a group to lobby for more funding for research into the causes and treatments for cluster headaches.
