I was just diagnosed. I also have Cluster Headaches, so I’m familiar with how helpful sites such as this can be, even life-saving. So here I am
My jaw/cheek area is not as tender or as swollen as it was yesterday and the number of triggered-attacks has diminished (zero so far today). I was able to eat all meals so far today and drink without issues. But! That’s the kicker, I can still feel that the episode (maybe it’s the TN2?) is somewhat active. My question is:
If I continue to to laugh/smile/talk during an episode that seems to be dying down, do I run the risk of aggravating the area and extending the episode?
I’m still learning the terminology and what not, so I hope what I asked makes sense. I’ll provide more info on my story and background ASAP, I just had this pressing question throw out there.
Thank you and PFW to all!
