Cluster Headaches Pain Relief
Definition: A cluster headache is severe episodic pain or discomfort located in the head, scalp, jaw, or neck region classified as a vascular headache because of the vascular changes associated with the onset of the headaches.
Cluster Headaches Information
Cluster Headaches: Cluster headaches, often difficult to distinguish from severe tension or migraine headaches, involve frequent episodic bursts of headaches lasting a few minutes to many hours followed by a pain free or pain reduced period of minutes to hours. These sets of headaches may resolve spontaneously and not recur for weeks or months. Pain due to cluster headaches is usually of sudden onset and excruciating. The headache pain is usually sharp and stabbing often described as a hot poker. These headaches usually occur in one area of the head and most frequently in or around the eye. However, cluster headaches may also spread to wider areas of the head and are usually located on one side of the head. Cluster headaches can be associated with other changes such as a red or watery eyes, nasal congestion or runny nose. Custer headaches may begin in the sleep. Men between 20 and 40 are the common victim of cluster headaches. While the exact cause of cluster headaches is not known, these headaches are classified as vascular headaches and have triggers in common with migraine headaches including some environmental toxins, smoke, foods, food additives, or fragrances.
Cluster Headache Treatments
Of course, for headaches that are suspected to be a result of any of the life-threatening causes noted above, emergency services (911) should be contacted immediately. However, treatments of headaches due to benign causes vary and depend on the type of headache. Many causes of benign headache pain may be treated, such as visual correction, improved medical treatment of high blood pressure. Tension headache pain may be improved with a change in life-style, a reduction of work hours, relaxation techniques, or improved rest and regular moderate exercise. Cluster and migraine headache pain may respond to regular rest, moderate exercise, and an avoidance of triggers. Physical therapy and nerve injections are sometimes used to control headache pain. Medical treatments for migraine headaches have improved over the past decade with the introduction of the class of medications known as the “triptans” such as sumatriptan. However, these medications do not always help, especially if not used as soon as the symptoms start, and can be associated with severe side effects such as vomiting and are not generally effective for sufferers of cluster headache pain.
The standard treatments for moderate to severe or acute or chronic headache pain are over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription narcotic and non-narcotic medication. As most patients who suffer with this type of headache pain soon realize, these treatments are usually not sufficient and many, especially the oral medications, are associated with serious side effects such as sedation, nausea, constipation, and even addiction. Extended use of some over-the counter (OTC) medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen may even result in stomach ulcers, kidney failure, heart failure, and liver failure. Many headache sufferers often search for alternative solutions to the usual over-the-counter and prescription medications.
