CAM for Migraine and Cluster Headaches (cont.)

Cluster headaches are given their name based on the fact that the attacks of pain occur in clusters that may last several weeks to months. The pain is agonizing and usually affects one side of the face, involving severe pain behind one of the eyes with associated nasal congestion and runny nose. Men tend to get these types of headaches more frequently than women.
