Dr. Have put me on antidepresstion med tried for a 4 days slept around the clock. Went & saw a nerologist he perscribed 400 mg magnesium & oxygen I went 41/2 months without a headache compared to 6 to 8 in a 24 hr. Period I quit the magnesium "just to see if I could w/out a cluster 2 wks I was having them & still having them oxygen is the new cure !! I hope this helps everybody out there as these clusters are the most horrible pain one can endure !! Best of luck !! Please let me know if u have tried or will try the magnesium : )
Hi, thanks for sharing that with the forum. Very interesting. I used to get horrible migrane's twice a week when i was younger. Luckily, it seems i have grown out of these, thanks goodness. But i understand how debilitating headache pain is, so am really pleased for you to find a cure! : )
I'am 53 and have suffered from cluster headaches.I have read some deplorable advice from DR.s.My neurologist said said to do Ti Chi.I'am lucky I didn't toss him out his window.But my gp fixed all.He researched..and this is what he said.Theres a main artery that flows lots of blood to the brain,That particular one on occasion... will flutter so that part of the brain is hurting because of the inconsistency of blood moving to that part of the brain.Thats where verapamil comes in.1 aday for 8-10 days,fixes the fluttering artery.He also gave me a inj product to use for immediate relief.It's called Dihydroergotamine.This is a inj... trust me it works.If your Dr. pisses abt bring him a medical journal.Also for you none believers.Please get to the chiropractor.They will align everything,and when i go on a reg basis my spelss are 3-4 yrs apart.So take this message as someone who has looked for ansewrs and talked to Drs. in the UK Europe asa Mt sinai.These work for me.So good luck to you all.Sincerely Timosh
