I have gotten migraines since I was a teenager. A few years ago, I started getting these headaches in my eye on the right side. Feels like someone is trying to take my eye out with a spoon. I went to the local ER and I had a wonderful younger Dr who diagnosed and treated me for cluster headaches. I have them frequently, and even at my work. I don't have insurance so treatment is really hard to afford. When the headaches hit, I rock, toss and turn, use a ice pack or hot shower, or whatever I think will work. People don't understand the pain or issues associated with these flares. My head is so sensitive to touch, and I just want to scream.
