cluster headache?


Recommended Posts

how can you tell the difference between a migraine and a cluster? i dont go thru long periods without headaches, but i do get the teary eye and pain on one side sometimes, and sometimes inhaling oxygen does help, so i was wondering if maybe i got both kinds, and is there any major difference in treatment? thanks

Radha, eMedicine had a good description of both:

here's the link to their description of Migraine:


and here's the one about Clusters:


After reading through, the primary difference seems to be that clusters are always on just one side (migraine can be one side or both) and severe eye pain with clusters.
