I don't want to barge into this thread disrespectfully, but what you describe is what I would call "oh yeah, another one - there I go again". I have those "headaches" pretty often. I've had them for... "decades" sounds too grand, but that's what it is.
I wouldn't wish them on anyone, but... we all have different perspectives.
Of course we do, but you must realize that such headaches are not day-to-day life for most people. I have known two other people who get something very similar (cluster headaches), but they do at least know from experience that the pain will end (although I'd imagine the first one is fairly terrifying). This woman had no idea how long it was going to last, or if it was possibly going to be permanent...and had absolutely no idea going in that she was risking headaches at all.
