In brief: Tough to treat

This can be quite debilitating to some, but many treatments are avaiable.
Indocin belongs to the antiinflammatory meds and it is often first choice, but does not work for everyone. There are other classes/meds used for this: calcium chanel blockers (i.E verapamil), steroids (prednisone), acetazolamide, and topamax (topiramate) have been used successfully in many patients. So, consult doc. Good luck.

CPH is characterized by frequent brief, intense unilateral head pain attacks daily.
The headache attacks of CPH are localized in the temporal, frontal or ocular regions. Almost all cases of CPH are relieved by indomethacin.
