Cluster Headaches are accepted to be because of a blend of ecological and hereditary components. Around 66% of cases keep running in families. Changing hormone levels might likewise assume a part, as headaches influence marginally a bigger number of young men than young ladies before pubescence, yet around a few times a larger number of ladies than men.
All inclusive, around 15% of the populace is influenced by headaches sooner or later in life. 3328 patients were analyzed retrospectively and divided according to gender, age, race, school instruction, onset of headache until first consultation and diagnosis(ICHD-II, 2004). Sex ratio (Female/Male) was 4:1, and the mean age was 40.7±15 years, without statistical differences between sexes.
Preventive medications: These types of drugs are taken regularly, often on a daily basis, to reduce the severity or frequency of cluster headaches. The FDA is currently reviewing a new migraine drug called Trexima, which combines the migraine drug Imitrex (sumitriptan) and naproxen sodium (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) contained in Aleve and other over-the-counter medications. The triptan prevents blood vessels from dilating.
