Not sure just that the cluster headaches subsided around 3 or so years ago after getting 1 cycle every 2 year's at the same time around spring i had a year when i had 3 cycles then they stopped completely with regards to the migraines i wonder if they were perhaps related to the high blood pressure as when i took my bp meds i haven't had as much as a tingle since though seem to have developed sleep apnoea lol gotta go to a sleep clinic appointment at end of the month

Guess that's why I've stopped coming on here not that i don't appreciate your help and support but i feel like I'm no longer a sufferer ☺

Pleased that both types have gone feel relief that i am no longer troubled by them though at the moment the sleep apnoea if it is that is debilitating enough wonder what exactly is going on with regards to my bodies oxygen

I have asthma but I feel it encourages the clusters due to less oxygen.

That's what i would have thought i have the abdominal distension along with the breathing discomfort and the sleep disturbance since i took the blood pressure meds hardly had any headache related pain at all another thing is I've had all the top row of teeth out if my headaches are cured I'm very happy with that Smile

top teeth out is interesting I have loads of bouts pain in the roots of my teeth mainly upper jaw one side at a time often during evenings when my clusters are at their worst, but lying down though aggrivates the clusters eases the pain in the teeth roots.

at times I feel like ripping out my top teeth.

 

[ a night gum shield made by dentists helps the teeth pain]
