In brief: Pain relief
In the short term, oxygen therapy may help.
The best results I have seen in my patients comes when they begin taking verapamil on a daily basis until the episode of cluster migraine has resolved. Steroids may also be helpful but i try to avoid them if possible. If you have cluster, i hope you are seeking the advice of a neurologist. It is an incredibly painful and frustrating medical problem.
