Cluster headache is an uncommon ailment affecting only about 0.1 - 0.3% of the population. It is often confused with migraine disease whose
sufferers total about 13%.
Recent research into cluster headache has provided help in preventing and
easing the severe pain for many, yet CH sufferers often remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years. And patients may receive little understanding from
family members, friends, coworkers, medical professionals, insurance companies,
and the general public.
We hope our Main Topics

- the nature and diagnosis of CH,
- effective CH medications,
- professional medical help, and
- ways of dealing with problems affecting the CH patient.
