hi i'm new to this so please bear with me. My daughter has been having headaches for a long time now we went to docs and he put her on amitriptyline which had no effect so we eventually stopped them. She had a couple of months headache free but now they have started up again. We went back to docs and hes put her on propranolol which don't seem to be helping. These headaches are affecting her daily activities badly. The doc reckons they are tension headaches but I don't think they are. They are always there and then suddenly she will be hit with excruciating pain generally on one side of her head and it also affects they eye. I don't think they are migranes. She is only 18 and misses work or has to leave college early cos of the pain. I just wondered if someone could help me with more about cluster headaches as there is so much conflicting info that i'm not sure thanks
