Outlook for Cluster Headaches
Cluster headache can be either ongoing or come and go, and people can jump from one type to the other. Many people who have cluster headache are pain-free for a year or longer, only to have the frustrating cycle of daily headaches begin again.
As is the case with migraine, people with cluster headaches respond to therapies that are widely available and are becoming less expensive. With proper medical treatment and guidance, you can control cluster headache.
