Thank you for contacting us on the forum. Cluster headache is indeed a most distressing and difficult condition.
We are here to support anyone with a neurological condition including cluster headache. We have a benefit adviser with experience in helping people with cluster headache with ESA claims and we can advise you on what to do next. We can also talk to you about PIP and whether it is appropriate to apply for that.

Did you guys ever try using medicinal marijuana for severe headache or migraine? I'm really curious about this matter and wanted to ask if you guys have any experience using cannabis. I came across some article that says medicinal marijuana can help you cope with these types of problem and some other health issues. I have 0% experience using cannabis so I'm hoping some of you guys can enlighten me and give me more information about this. Thanks!
