Hi. I'm s sufferer of cluster headaches. I'm currently 6 weeks in. I've just finushed a course of steroids. During my time I've gone from having them continuously all day every day. My only relief was short breaks while psin relief took away the pain to 1 or 2 attacks a day. I'm currently taking 3 x 0.5mg pizotofen per day. I've noticed that I seem to get an attack about 2hrs after I've fallen asleep.this in turn makes you apprehensive to sleep as I know what's in store. I use sumitriptin nasal spray as it's fast acting and ice . I've been told that amitriptyline is also used and us normally taken at night before going to bed. Could I use the two at the same time.
I'm also trying to explore any alternatives such as pure lemon juice / chiropractor etc. Try to follow strict food sleep routines rtf. I've read that these headaches arnt food related but as theyre tring to take over my life( i can't even enjoy reading a book in the bath anymore as heat seems to trigger them). I'm just looking for help / advice and some means to get my life back to some sort of normality.
