There's no perfect cure for cluster headaches. Your treatment will be aimed at decreasing the severity of pain, shorten the headache period and prevent future attacks.
Some types of acute medication can provide pain relief quickly. These include:
Inhaling pure oxygen using an oxygen mask
Triptans (migraine medication)
Calcium channel blockers (these have side effects such as constipation, nausea, fatigue, swelling of the ankles and low blood pressure).
Lithium carbonate (side effects include tremors, increased thirst and diarrhoea)
In rare cases, your doctor may recommend surgery if there is no other way to get relief or the medication has too many side effects. Surgical procedures can be used to damage those nerve pathways where the pain is originating from. However, there are many risks and possible complications so this option is not commonly suggested.
