... clusters I'm having them a lot. I seem to have some form of head pain everyday. The meds I'm on at the moment are topiramate 100mg twice a day. Also propranolol 40mg three times a days. And tramadol 50mg three times a day and diclofenac 50mg three times a day when I can't cope. Which is a lot lately. Today my doctor has put me on a weeks course of Prednisolone 20mg. To try and help. I just feel like my head hurts in some form all the time. And any advice would be greatly appreciated
I have really bad migraines all the time. Do you take any triptans? They are amazing at getting rid of migraines if you take them in time. Is your doctor a neurologist that specializes in your type of migraines? The only other thing that I can suggest that really helps immensely is an ice pack covered in a towel around my neck, (my husband prefers it over his eyes), but seriously, we must have 10 ice packs in the freezer, so that when one gets warm, we can take out another. Don't knock the non-drug answers. Sometimes they can be the best. Good luck, I really mean that, as I KNOW what migraines can do to me.
Have you tried craniosacral therapy? I get headaches that have both migraine and cluster aspects, once for 6 months straight. Nothing did more than dull the pain/pressure. One craniosacral session and I was pain-free by the time I got home. Now I see her every two months or so.
