My name is Mike I'm 28 and recently diagnosed with ch. I feel a little better knowing I'm not going mad. I've been having trouble for a while Having attacks that lasted two or three day. However I am in the longest bout I've ever had. so far I've been off work for six weeks I'm getting 3 -8 attacks a day. It's driving me up the wall, how ever I have to give praise to my gp who picked up on it being ch as soon as I described the attack in December. This bout started back on the 5th of Feb I booked in with my go and She put a referral through Stright away and prescribed imagran injections and ordered O2 for me as well. I saw the neurologist on the 5th March who's given me 240mg of varapamil a day. Just hope they kick soon. I've got a follow up on the 20th and just hope they calm down soon. The name cluster headache really isn't fitting for the pain we go through. I can't stop laughing at the people hear the name and can't resist saying "oh I get headaches as well". The thing that run through my head I really shouldn't put down in words.
Anyway I wanted to say hi and if anyone has any tips in dealing with the pain or if anyone has any key signs that their bout is coming to and end. or any advice really. I would love to hear from you.
