this is my 1st post on this excellent site. i have suffered cluster headaches for many years,i am a 47yrs old woman,up until a few years ago my gp diagosed me with migraines but after i started using the internet and reading info from this site i realised my gp had misdiagnosed. He now has put imitrex injections on repeat prescription. My bouts up till now have been between 15months to 2 yrs apart lasting about 6 weeks with a 4hour headache every few days,
However something has changed this time round they started as usual 3 months ago but after 6 weeks instead of dissapearing i have had 1 every single night and a couple early in day when i call for a repeat precription the secretaries are horrible to me saying things like ' you've just last week had a prescription' in there patronising way.I have purchased most of the injections from abroad so have not really had many injections from my doctor.
Does anyone on this forum know why after all these years my headaches being of the same pattern have changed so much this time round and any advise on what i can ask my gp as he doesnt really know much about cluster headaches
