I'm writing this to the tune of raging pain at side of head, so please bear with me.
I just discovered several days ago, that what I have is a cluster headache.
I'd never heard of them before.
It's been several years, since I had one.
This time, my right eye has been like a sieve, which is how I discovered
my symptoms matched the cluster headache.
No wonder the ibuprofen wasn't working.
I think it's interesting that, when running, the right side of my head becomes
much hotter and sweats far more than the left.
I'm 61 years old, and now going into the third week of pain.
The pain doesn't go away, as some sites suggest, but sits there
as a dull ache, with little reminding stabs, that it will be returning.
Coffee helps a bit, but the lack of sleep is taking a toll
That's all I can manage right now.
