Diagnosing cluster headaches
Signs and symptoms
The symptoms of a cluster headache include a sharp, burning pain that often begins while the person is sleeping and are often centered on one eye, causing the pupil to constrict and the eyelid to droop. Additionally, pain may radiate from the center to other areas of the head, causing a flushed face, tearing eye, or even a runny nose.
Cluster headaches may last as short as 15 minutes to as long as three hours. During the period of cluster headaches, attacks often occur every day at regular times. After the period is finished, the person may not have another cluster period for months or years.
Although the true cause of cluster headaches in unknown, the season is the most common trigger for cluster headaches, often resulted from stimulation of the hypothalamus. Although nothing is proven, most people report correlations between triggers such as alcohol, smoking, certain foods, bright lights, and many others.

How we help
Diagnose your cause of pain
During your first consultation, your chiropractor will start by asking you a few questions about your medical history, perform a physical examination, and discuss your symptoms to develop a working diagnosis. An X-ray or MRI may be needed to determine proper treatment.
Customize a treatment plan
Once your diagnosis is determined, your doctor will perform a non-invasive chiropractic adjustment using minimal force and gentle pressure to alleviate pressure and restore proper nervous system functioning, which should help ease the symptoms of your cluster headaches.
