I'm a 23 yr old female and I've just been diagnosed with cluster headaches.
My Dr. said I just had to put up with the pain and to take Nurofen when it gets too much which doesnt seem to help.
The first thing I did when I had the chance was to look up cluster headaches and treatment on the internet, and it said that sumatriptan injections should be used as a first line treatment, so I rang my Dr. up and he told me that they were only used for migraines and they wouldnt work for me.
He has prescribed one tablet for me to try but I havent had it from the chemist yet.
Just wanted to know if it's worked for anyone else and shouldn't it be an injection he should prescribe? I read that tablets (5-ht1 agonists) don't take the pain away fast enough and that painkillers dont do anything to lessen the pain.
Would appreciate any response...
