Preventing cluster headaches thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Cluster headaches are a very serious kind of headache that occur in the form of attacks. An attack can last between 15 minutes and three hours and a person may experience up to eight attacks a day. People affected by cluster headaches suffer from unbearable pain. One notable characteristic of these headaches is that the attacks often occur at almost exactly the same times of day. Cluster headaches are roughly three times more common in men than women and mainly affect people between 20 and 50 years of age.
