I am a wife, mother of 3 grown up daughters, grandmother of 4 and I work full time. I was shocked when I started with Cluster Headaches (which took 4 months to be officially diagnosed by a neurologist
). I am currently on the preventer, Topirimate since December. My last attach was before Christmas and it was cortisone that aborted it. I am not allowed to have any more cortisone.
One symptom that I get before and during attacks is where the white of my eye becomes very red and swells. It has been swollen most of this week so I am nervously anticipating a possible attack. Interestingly, I seem to be having some pain twinges and swelling of my eye on the other side of my head as well! This is the first time that this has happened.
