I have been diagnosed with “cluster headaches” which has not been under control in over 2 years.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I started getting very painful stabbing pains in the left top side of my head. It is so painful I’m literally crawling out of my skin trying to get rid of it. No medicine helps. Every time I go to the ER for this, they treat me like a pain pill addict and send me home. I have never been addicted to any drugs. I only go a few days at a time, maybe 5 days out of 6 months, without a cluster headache. I have became extremely depressed due to the fact of I cannot go anywhere or do anything at all without an attack. When it hits me all I can do is cry and scream in agony! I’ve had ONE MRI and they put me on a blood pressure medicine that just made me fat and did not help with the cluster headaches. Nothing can make it go away until I just fall asleep from exhaustion. I cannot lay down not look down, sit down too long, bend over, and I can’t even pick up my children and hold them without an attack! All I want to do is be able to be a normal mother again! I want to be able to do fun things with my girls and take them places without my oldest worrying if mommy is sick again! Please help!
