Patient Comments: Cluster Headaches - Triggers

What triggers your cluster headaches?

Comment from: JC, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: February 26

I have dealt with cluster headaches for the past 5 years. They can occur monthly or every 3 to 4 months apart. Last year I had a remission from these headaches but now they have returned. I don"t know if allergies or stress triggers these headaches.

Everything, nothing, I have no idea. What could be a trigger when you are sound asleep and wake up in a full blown searing, pounding, aching, screaming cluster!
