CLUSTER HEADACHE STORIES

We’ve collected a few stories of cluster headache sufferers (and survivors) here for you to read.

Henry’s Cluster Headache Experience
“My fight with cluster headaches began when I was 17. The first time I remember the pain was in Construction class in 12th grade. Since clusters come at the same time daily, it was always that same class. I was in so much pain I couldn’t talk to people, I didn’t know what to say. So, I went and hid in a small fort we had built. I thought something in the building was causing it (sawdust/paint/etc.) but when the class ended and the headaches continued; I knew I had to see a doctor.” [read more]

Steve’s Cluster Headache Experience
I am a 68-year-old male and my cluster headaches first appeared when I was in my mid-50’s. My pain has always been right below my left eye. It started by waking me up in the night and usually always when I had drank some alcohol during the evening before going to bed. I would have to get out of bed and walk the floor for 45-60 minutes until this strange and horrible pain would finally subside. [read more]
