It was during second year at university, when I turned 20, that I started getting these persistent headaches that wouldn't go away. I'd investigated, and discovered there's one particular type of headaches known as *cluster headaches*, also known as suicide headaches because of their extreme severity, apparently. Mine weren't nearly as severe, however, they bothered me a lot! It was like my right eye/temple area (where the pain took place) would feel cramped a little momentarily, and then settle down with sharp pain! Keeping physically active was obviously the solution, as it would make the pain vanish away, but since most people I'd observed were settling for the more laid back lifestyles, I found myself having to make the same choice. I've been taking it easier since, but the pain hasn't gone away. It's still here. Some times, on rare occasions, the pain would transmit down to my neck, and shoulder (on the right side, that is). It's not a common health issue; approximately 1 in 1,000 people get cluster headaches, and again, I don't think mine are nearly as bad as said. They just made me feel crap for making me deal with them as an issue. What do you know about cluster headaches? Do you know any one who have them? How do you deal with a loved one who suffers from them?
