Old age & injections

Hi,

I've been having cluster headaches for a number of years now and sumitryptan injections work their magic. But I'm now 75 and want to know if it's o.k. To still inject?

Hi, well we aren't health professionals so you would need to go by your neurologist's advice.  Other sufferers of similar age use them but it should always go through your health professionals who are aware of your medical history.

I'd seek a CH friendly neuro, my Doctors have tried to wriggle out of giving me my injections too often to trust their choice of Neurologist.
