: my husband who is 63 has had cluster headaches since he was in his late teens - almost every single year since then he suffers from them - we never know what season it will be - one period of time he went almost 2 years without them - doctor has put him on prednisone the last couple of years - increasing the dosage then decreasing it - also we were able to obtain an oxygen tank for his use - which is the "only" thing that has helped. the pain is very bad and nothing helps - they last from an hour to 10 minutes - hot packs also help some. does anyone out there suffer from these "clusters"? i know what he is going through i have had them since i was a teenager too but just lately found out what they werethey run my live and are getting worse the pain isjust about to much or i think so when i have one well just thought i would let you know you are not alone maybe we will talk later good luck
