Cluster headache patients seek pain relief

Patients searching for treatment ask US Congress for special attention to their pain.

The pain of a cluster headache has been described as intense as childbirth or amputation without anesthetic.

Affecting one in every 700 people in the US, patients have convened on Washington DC to appeal to members of Congress for help.
