8 Years with Cluster Headaches

Last updated: June 2022

I was diagnosed 8 years ago with cluster headaches and also have migraines too. I have tried all types of medications and now take a combination of medications to ward off the excruiating pain as I have several episodes per day that can last for hours or days. I can see why they called them "suicide headaches."

I have had migraines since I was a teenager and then they came back in my 30's. They went away again but came back in my 50's and have been with me ever since...

Hoping they come up with medications for cluster headaches soon.
