Cluster Headache Treatment

Pain behind one eye is the primary symptom of a cluster headache.

The cause of cluster headaches is still debated today, but is generally described as an imbalanced biological clock. Sleeping and eating at irregular times, and not exercising at a regular time of day, can contribute to chronic cluster headaches. 

A cluster headache is pain in a roughly ball-shaped spot behind one eye. Cluster headaches are similar in location to hormonal headaches, which are located around and behind the eye. The difference is cluster headaches are focused in one area directly behind the eye while hormonal headaches reach the back of the head. 

Cluster headaches are often reoccurring, repeating every few days for a period of weeks or months. The best way to combat chronic cluster headaches is to build a strong routine: going to bed and getting up at the same time each day, eating meals at regular intervals, and letting other elements of your life find a specific place in your routine. Our team is passionate about helping anyone develop healthy habits, and would love to meet to help build a solid foundation for your health.
