Hope for cluster headache

I want to bring a new report to cluster headache sufferers.  As the name implies, these patients have severe headaches during a period of weeks to months followed by headache-free remissions that last for weeks to months and even years.

The new study was a well designed double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled crossover trial of 109 adults and showed that high-flow mask-delivered oxygen for 15 minutes gave pain relief that lasted at least an hour.

This result should come as no surprise to regular readers of this blog.  Hyperbaric oxygen has long been known to alleviate migraine and cluster headache is a closely related condition.  Perhaps neurologists will be more open to prescribing hyperbaric oxygen for their refractory patients.

    Greetings everyone, This website is excellent and so is the way the theme was expanded. I like some of the comments as well although I would suggest we all keep it on topic to add value to the topic. It will be also encouraging to the one who penned it down if we all could share it (for some of you who use bookmarking services such as a delicious, twitter,..). Again, Thanks..
