‘What If’ Star Daniel Radcliffe Treated for Cluster Headaches
Daniel Radcliffe has to take pills and undergo regular check-ups to manage debilitating cluster headaches.
The What If star is receiving special treatment for the painful condition, which is said to be more intense and painful than migraines, and he has to see his doctor on a regular basis to make sure the strong medication he is taking is not affecting his heart.
Radcliffe tells Britain’s The Guardian, “You have to be on blood pressure medication and have an ECG (electrocardiography heart monitor) every so often… but don’t worry, I’m perfectly fine.”
Daniel has admitted to dealing with drinking problems in the past, even using them as inspiration for a 2012 video he starred in, Slow Club’s Beginner, and told the Guardian, “If I had to give my younger self one piece of advice it would be, don’t talk about that in an interview,” he says. “Because I’ve answered questions on it for three or four years since. And it’s such an insignificant part of my life that everyone just wants to talk about.”
