Thanks for that, I will definatly use the headache diary. And no more drinking for me, I have hardly been smoking in hope that it stops it too. I can predict how they work everyday for 7 days I have been hit with it between 8-8.30am and fairly constant (a few 20ish minute breaks) until 5.30. then it goes away for the night. weird. Hope I can get some effective relief soon.

I am undiagnosed but after going to the hospital the other night when I could no longer stand it the doctor seemed to think there was nothing wrong, gave me some oxygen (which I had never heard of helping headaches) and when that done the job he suggested it might be cluster headaches -which Id never heard of before. I came home and googled it, found this site and I have most of the symptoms here. I went to the doctor today for a follow up (the pain is driving me crazy, but I did get a 5 hour break last night) the doctor I saw today was very unsympathetic and prescribed me some maloxin...waiting for some relief....I understand why they are called suicide headaches, I feel like sticking a syringe into my head and draning some fluid or something!

Oh, and I spoke to my grandmother (my mother died when I was young) but apparently my mother had headaches a lot. Wish she was around so I could quiz her as to where it hurt. Right now Id say my pain is at about an 8/10
