  • Uneducated morons deserve one ‘ as bad as migraine’… how are these idiots allowed to say this? Heartbreaking for sufferers hearing that fool..

  • Nah man migraines headaches whatever you call it is nothing compared to a cluster headache cluster headaches make you want to kill yourself the pain is so intense there’s no cure for it you can only have preventive measures I’m allergic to ibuprofen so I can’t take anything in the ibuprofen family and Tylenol does nothing for my cluster headaches..my eyes droop my eyes water my head feels like it’s on fire and in a vice and someone is poking through my eye it is the worst pain imaginable it is indescribable.. there is no comparison to a regular generic migraine or headache

  • ​ @TheEndTrend First step you wanna do is shower in cold water for 2-3 hours and make sure the cold water hit were it pain after getting out the shower you will feel a lot of pain but not as much after 6 or 4 hour it was start paining again and that when you put a ice pack on your head or go take a shower again then take a sleep keep doing that routine and you will feel better i been doing it for 2-3 weeks and i do’t have the cluster headache no more

  • TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS a month? Damn thieves! Preying on those who have little means to get rid of their hellish experiences like that!. If anything, try psilocybin or Bromo LSD, or even DMT before you try this. A friend of mine has been suffering for years, and for him some magic mushrooms did the trick! You can even go out and find them in the forest yourself (make sure you get the right ones though!!), and it seems to be helpful to quite a few sufferers. Good luck!

  • I’ve had migraines. And since 2015 I have had 3-cycles of Clusters. Nobody I know has them. When u talk about it u hear, “that’s how my migraines be”. Oh man, stop it. I would love a migraine compared to CH. it’s 2019-10 and they are back. These clusters suck suck suck!!!!!!

  • I have been cluster free for almost five years. After I got my life straight and back on track I’m reminded they never go away. I’m currently going through my 4th week of CH and I would kill to just have a migraine. I can live with that!

  • Cluster headaches are not common. Migraines is a common condition that affects more than 37 million Americans while cluster headaches, more common in men only affect 1 million people. I’m sorry I don’t want to spread hate but my brother has cluster headaches, nicknamed “suicide headaches”. I really don’t want people to think they are similar. It affects a totally different area of the brain. While clusters only last 3 hours compared to a migraine that can last 3 days clusters can happen several times a day. My brothers highest count of clusters is 9 times a day for 8 months. Migraines can be associated with hormones and stress while clusters is a condition. Cluster headache is one of the most painful conditions known to mankind and women suffering from cluster headache describe the pain as worse than childbirth. You simply cant say they are similar. When someone tells my brother they understand cause they got a migraine once its not the same. You are incapable in that state which makes no one want to hire you. My brother had his cycle during college finals. When he gets one he must be rushed to his dorm on a cart for oxygen. This high dose of oxygen is higher than what most people sell and ergo more expensive. I want to clear this common misconception. Because this condition is 20 times more likely than any other pain to make someone take their life. While this video has good information it really doesn’t do this condition justice.

  • My headaches/migraines were caused by the dissolved metal in water and lack of salt. I now distil all my water and add salt, the headaches are gone. There is a lot of dissolved metals in water which vibrate when in an electro-magnetic field such WiFi, this vibration causes inflammation in the bodies tissues and particularly the brain which causes the headaches. This is known as electrical sensitivity. The salt helps to dissipate electrical charge in the body bring further instant relief.

    It seems to me that the magnet is only bringing temporary relief as the magnet moves the metal in one direction to the back of the head to elevate pressure on the eyes and frontal lobes.

  • I’ve had cluster headaches since I was 12. I totally remember the first one I got. So bad. I’m a girl so most Dr. Try to tell me I’m misdiagnosed until they see me coming in with one. Toradol is what I use. One Doc even said it brought me back to life.

  • My dad has cluster headaches AND THE SHIT SUCKS he pukes he beats his head with his fist puts his hand into a wall (drywall) and it scares the shit out of me I’m only 17 and seen him with a cluster 3 times my mom is there for support and also get what he needs (oxygen ice packs and imatrex shot) its unbearable to watch my own father suffer from this shit and wish he never had to deal with this bs

  • just as bad as migraines? CH is way stronger and much more painful. Ive had this for 13 years, and it destroys me everytime i get an attack

  • Known as ‘suicide headache’ for a reason. Up to 25% of sufferers attempt suicide, and one study cites 10 000 attempts in the US alone relatred to cluster headache.

    It hurts so much that you are literally crawling on the floor and banging your head against tables/desks. It’s no fucking joke.

  • Back in late 2008 I had a really bad one sided headache. It was a Friday and I tried to get a doctors appointment but could not get one till the following Tuesday. However on the Saturday morning the headache came back so bad that I went to the NHS walk in centre. There it was noticed that I had a drooping eye lid and the pupil of that eye was constricted. They arranged an appointment at the local general hospital where I had a CT scan and was told I had cluster headaches but they were not sure why and sent me home on the Sunday. On the Monday morning after very little sleep I went to my doctor for advice, he said that the cluster headache diagnosis was just a description of symptoms but told nothing of the actual cause of the headaches. He arranged an urgent appointment at another hospital to see a neurologist.
    The neurologist carried out a thorough examination and said that I had Horners syndrome due to nerve damage. He knew from my symptoms which nerve was damaged but I needed an MRI to find the location of the damage. The MRI indicated a left carotid dissection that was distorting the nerve bundle and causing the problems.

    I had to stay in hospital for further testing, I had serious hypertension which was the likely cause of the problem, which was not serious enough for surgery. For a few days I was tried on various hypertension medications until an optimal combination was found that stabilised me. I had another MRI scan on the Friday which showed some improvement and I was able to go home on Saturday and back to work on the Monday.

    Because Horners syndrome is fairly uncommon while in hospital I had a couple of small groups of medical students come to look at me.
    I had also developed a visual problem in my left eye and had to get new glasses with a prism to compensate for the double vision I was experiencing.

  • I would call Oxygen is quick effective treatment for cluster headaches,if we do not have to wait for 15 miunts, or if I do not have to wait for the next attack to come in..would not you?
    Let us stop that and look for the real cause.and treat the real pain.

  • @FRCDallas,No sir,I have not studied “human physiology and neurology” but I did my studies in numbers and logics, Which,Look like you do not agree with,again with all respects to you,what is the cause of Cluster headaches,and what is the logic into treating it by Oxygen,Sir??

  • Guys! Ive tried alot if things it does not work. But in 2012 my mother prayed for me and i drank Prednisone Pills. Ever since that time its been gone please do try it.
