Suggest treatment for cluster headache

Hi I am a man 48 years old I was diagnosed with cluster headache in 1987 Usually i had it for 2 months a year before the paint stopped. The pain is the worst i know. I am quite tolerant to pain and a broken shoulder and crushed knee cap is not something of pain at all compared to cluster headache. If i have cut myself at a accident at work i have the doctor stitch me up without any pain realif The last three years i have had cluster headaches everyday so i have not been working at that time. I had the house checked and the basement was full of mold behind the paneling. Can the mold effect.trigger cluster headaches or do i have cluster hedache chronic? I am very tired of having cluster headache almost every day Regards Roger

Actually there are chances for molds triggering your headache. Because molds causes irritation and results in headaches,Nausea, dizziness etc. I advice you to:
- Take Triptans as subcutaneous injections 4mg
- steroids like Tab. Prednisolone 40mg/ day & tapered off in 3-4 weeks
- have oxygen inhalation at the rate of 8-10litres /min
- avoid factors that triggers your headache
- Neck massage & exercises
- Periodic examination of eyes by ophthalmologist

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Get well soon.
