Welcome to Healing Well. Sorry to hear you are going through this. I do voluntary work on a Helpline here in the uk for Clusterheadaches, I hope you don't mind me asking a few questions to enable me to get a clearer picture of a way forward.
Can you describe to me the symptoms you get and the type of pain i.e. throbbing, stabbing, burning or sharp? How long do your attacks last? How often do you get them? Do you get them during the night? Do you know what was in the 'migraine drip'? This seems an odd way to treat Clusterheadaches, especially the dose of Prednisalone you were given!!! Prednisalone for CH should be given in a very high dose for 5 days and then tapered down gradually whilst bring a preventative in slowly! Or, on its own as a pain break!!!
You need to see a Neurologist, if possible one that is a Headache Specialist!!! They should do an MRI to rule out the nasties - I would expect an MRI to come up clear as CH does not show up in any test!!
I am not surprised you are depressed, living with this kind of pain is depressing!!
Although you have been told you have Clusterheadache, from your descript
ion of your first attack it does sound like a Hemiplegic Migraine, so any info you can give me will help. Having said all that I am not medically qualified to make a diagnosis, I can only suggest what it may be for you to discuss with your Doctor!!
Polyps in the sinuses can produce awful headaches too, but some of your symptoms so far do not indicate a sinus problem!
