patriot1314 BS: Migraine sufferers, advice please? (140* d) RE: BS: Migraine sufferers, advice please? 22 Jul 04

I can sympathise with fellow sufferers, I've had cluster headaches for years now. I can be fine for months or even years, but when they strike! oh boy!
My headaches don't last for very long, 40 minutes would be a long one, but the pain is intense.
Two things have worked for me. I had a course of "Bowen Technique" from a qualified practitioner and I was fine for about 5 years. Earlier this year I had a cluster period again which coincided with a strain on my neck muscles.
I saw an Osteopath and had a few appointments where my neck was gently manipulated and..... touch wood..... I've been fine since.
I hope this helps anyone who suffers from the same thing.
