in my case i have the M.D. permission to take some meds he has on a standing order for me. i have had this problem for better then 40 years going on . along with aspirin till they subside :o([QUOTE=geno888;2439515]If you have a previous history of cluster headache, the best option is to see your doctor as soon as possible. If these episodes were solved in past for a long time, there must be a reason why they returned again.
I’m not saying that is something very bad, but only a medical checkup can determine if there is a cause of this return. Maybe it is only a temporary stressing event in your life that caused the return. Removing this stressful event (if possible, of course) can solve everything with no drugs at all.
Don’t take pills by yourself, because the most dreaded “side effect” of headache-killers is that they can become completely ineffective if abused, making then very difficult to reduce pain.
A couple of aspirin is good for the episodic headache, but more “serious” drugs should be avoided until a doctor decide if they can be used safely.
I hope that you’ll solve this problem ASAP [/QUOTE]
