  • What makes you think that the migraine diagnosis is incorrect? How were you treated? Were you started on a triptan (maxalt, etc.)for abortive therapy and if so how did you respond? You are kind of young for a diagnosis of Cluster headaches, but you give a pretty good story for it. Do you have tearing on the affected side during an episode/at the heigth of symptoms? What are you worried about/do you think the diagnosis is?

  • my Nero perscribed mydrol for the migraine. Even tho that's an anti inflamitory. My physician gave me espic-plus? Its for cluster headaches. And no I dont have tearing in the eye. Just have alot of pressure built up along left side of head and back left side of head. My left cheeck is tightness. Also tightsness along left eye. I guess the fact that this problem has been going on for almost two weeks and the medication is not working has me confused and scared
