What Are Cluster Headaches?
Cluster headaches are among the most painful headaches you can experience. The pain can be so intense that it even wakes you up in the middle of the night. They’re called cluster headaches because they tend to strike within a specific time of cluster periods. They typically affect just one side of your head, not both.
Between 200,000 to a million people in the U.S. reportedly suffer from this type of headache. About 12 percent of these have been diagnosed with chronic headaches, which means these painful headaches occur for longer periods that happen more frequently.
Cluster headaches tend to come and go in cycles that follow certain patterns, such as:
The most common cluster headache pain phase lasts several weeks to several months. Usually, the period is consistent throughout your lifetime. For example, you may get these headaches every spring or every fall.
Episodic cluster headaches continue for a week but can last up to a year. When they stop, the pain-free remission lasts for months or even years before the episodic pain phase starts again.
Chronic cluster headaches cause continuous pain for longer than a year. And once they stop, you may get less than a month of the pain-free phase before they start anew.
Most cluster headache sufferers fall between the ages of 20 to 50. Since the pain is constant and often unbearable, your best bet for relief is to seek medical help from a headache specialist at the earliest possible opportunity. With offices in NYC and Paramus, NJ (and throughout Bergen County), the Advanced Headache Center provides the best cluster headache treatment options.
