Cluster headaches

  1. Hey everyone!
    I am gonna try to pick y'all brains and try to understand about this type of headache.
    Background....son in law seen in ER last night with his worst one ever. Slurred speech, left sided weakness....severe, incapacitaing pain. CT normal.
    Have you all ever seen this before? I have been an RN for over 20 years and not much freaks me out anymore but this was very scary.
    Not asking for medical advice.....just similar stories and what is your understanding of this. Thanks in advance!

    That does sound very scary, unfortunately it would be extremely difficult to speculate about what is going on with your son in law, and the danger is that even though your not asking for medical advise your question is beyond the scope of this forum.
