Just got diagnosed


Recommended Posts

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. 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.
