Cluster headache is not the kind of medical condition that develops because of lifestyle choices. As far as the experts know, there are no documented risk factors for the development of cluster headache. The onset of symptoms usually occurs before age 30. It is a lifelong, incurable condition with no known cause. In the past, it was believed that only men with a history of smoking, drinking, and/or recreational drug use developed cluster headaches. While men still outnumber women 3:1, cluster headache can affect anyone, regardless of lifestyle. You did not do anything to deserve cluster headaches.
