LONDON | The actor known for playing Harry Potter was diagnosed with a severe form of headache, called a “cluster headache” or the Cluster Headache syndrome. Radcliffe was forced to give up a number of professional obligations earlier this year as suffering headaches had become extremely painful.
The actor sought medical help and was diagnosed with a rare form of headache that causes severe pain in one half of the head. “In the winter, I was suffering from a strange condition called the Cluster Headache syndrome. It’s a very rare form, but very painful. Beside it, a migraine seems a joke. Back then, I thought I was a coward. I took strong painkillers, 12 per day and I ask myself: “How come the head still hurt? ‘”, the actor said on Sunday in an interview with the Independent.
