    Get some sumatriptan from your dr that is what I use and it works a treat, I know it doesnt work for everyone, but see how you get on. 

    It sounds like cluster headache you are getting,  Does your eye water as well?

    I take Rizatriptan ODT on the onset of headache or if pressure in the eyes as that is how my migraines starts.. if it's a sinus type head issue I do Flonase in nose and take Rizatriptan..  the key is to take the Rizatriptan right when you feel an issue coming on as if not and migraine forms then it's hard to get rid of it.

    Please check out with doctor...always so important.  We just share what works for us....we are all different.

    keep us posted.  I wish you well!
