The prevalence of cluster headache is about one in 500. In people coming to a headache clinic, the prevalence is about 10%.
Cluster headaches are excruciating and incapacitating, and affect quality of life. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can make a big difference to the outcome – so it is vital that we get the diagnosis and management of this condition right.
