MIGRAINE & CLUSTER HEADACHES

We are currently accepting participants for cluster headaches only

Migraines

Migraines are recurrent throbbing headaches that typically affects one side of the head and is often accompanied by nausea and disturbed vision. Globally, nearly one billion people are affected by migraines – about 15% of the world population – and over 2% of the world population are affected by chronic migraines. Migraines can cause nausea, vomiting, hypersensitivity to light, sound, and smell, and can severely debilitate patients at the onset of their migraine attacks.

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches occur in cyclical patterns or clusters and are one of the most painful types of headaches that may last from 15 minutes up to 3 hours long. A cluster headache commonly wakes you in the middle of the night with intense pain in or around one eye on one side of your head. Bouts of frequent attacks, known as cluster periods, can last from weeks to months, usually followed by remission periods when the headaches stops for months, or even years, at a time.

​​Fortunately, treatments can make cluster headache attacks shorter and less severe. In addition, medications can reduce the number of cluster headaches. At Princeton Medical Institute, we are researching various treatments for the prevention of migraines and cluster headaches. We are currently running clinical trials for cluster headaches and are currently accepting participants to be a part of the study.
