Cluster headaches like migraines affect people in recurring patterns or clusters. Cluster headaches are very painful and tend to wake up those affected in the middle of the night with sharp acute pain on one side of the head or around the eye with extreme cases experiencing a feeling of the eye pulled out of the socket.
Cluster headaches can last anywhere from few weeks to several months followed surprisingly by cessation of attacks for long period of time.
Symptoms of cluster headaches
- Sharp burning pain on one side of the head or around the eye with possibility of pain spreading to neck, shoulders and the head
- General restlessness
- Excessive watering of the affected eye along with reddening
- Pale skin on the face
Causes of cluster headaches
Although it is hard to pin down the exact underlying cause of cluster headaches, it is the cyclical nature of the attacks which occur with clockwork precision in a 24 hour period that gives a good idea of where they originate.
The key region affected during a cluster headache attack is the hypothalamus. This is where the human biological clock (circadia rhythms) is located deep at the center of the brain.
Compared to migraines and tension headaches, cluster headaches are not affected by external environmental triggers like stress, food consumed and hormonal changes.
Magnetic therapy treatment for cluster headaches
From the results of a study conducted by Prof Anninos and neurologist Dr Sandyk, they have been able to treat a variety of neurological disorders using time varying magnetic fields.
Magnetic therapy is believed to provide highly beneficial biological advantages in the treatment of disorders that are caused by neurological or endocrinal malfunction.
The research in the latter part of the 80s clearly proves that apart from treating musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders, pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) are known to hugely benefit the treatment of psychological disorders.
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) are both proving to be a boon in providing tangible benefits and also risk free in treating problems, especially in accurate diagnosis of existing disorders.
In TMS, electrical currents are induced in tissue using stimulative coil placed on the scalp at the affected area and subjected to varying frequencies and the whole process is totally non-invasive.
The pulses emitted stimulates the brain by altering the electrical activity of the nerve cells in the affected area in the brain.
Some of the disorders include cluster headaches, migraines, epilepsy, depression, attention deficit disorders (ADD), attention deficit hyperactive disorders (ADHD) and Parkinsons disease.
