For the curious http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_headache If so how do you deal? After a couple of pain free years, its starting up in february, with the seasonal change.... like clockwork. I havent started getting the headbangers yet, just the dull ones. For me, no over the counter stuff works, it just makes it more intense..though sometimes shorter. I have been getting these things off and on since around 14. The usually come everyday for 2-3 months, and stress, noise and bright sunshine make them monumentally worse. I have found that rubbing my head continously lessens the pain. Any one else deal with this? PS...I did not start this for any kind of pity party or whatever these types of threads usually devolve to on this board, just curious. My head is starting a dull banging right now..
