Daniel Radcliffe takes blood pressure medication to ease excruciating cluster headaches!
Dont Worry I Am Fine: Says Daniel Radcliffe!
Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he’s on blood pressure medication - at the age of 25.
The actor told how he has seen his doctor about getting painful cluster headaches which he has suffered for two years.
He said: “You have to be on blood pressure medication and have an ECG every so often.”
An ECG is a test which records the rhythm and electrical activity of your heart.
But Daniel reassured the interviewer: “Don’t worry, I’m perfectly fine.”
The former Harry Potter star first revealed he was suffering from cluster headaches in 2012. He was forced to cancel several work commitments due to the agonising medical condition.
At the time, he said: “I was in the middle of these weird things called ‘cluster headaches’. It’s very rare evidently, but it’s exceptionally painful. It makes a migraine look quite tame.
“At the time I thought I was being a wuss. I was taking 12 (strong painkillers) a day and going, ‘Why do I still have a headache?”
Daniel also suffers a mild form of dyspraxia - a common neurological problem that impairs the organisation of movement.
And he has previously admitted to turning to alcohol to help with his fear of failure. Now he wishes he never spoke about the issue.
Daniel spoke out about his problems for the first time
He said: “If I had to give my younger self one piece of advice it would be, don’t talk about that in an interview.
“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 it.”
Daniel also told how him and Rupert Grint, 25, went to Reading festival - in gas masks as a disguise.
He said: “I was with Rupert Grint and we didn’t want to be recognised. I wore a gas mask for most of the time.”
When asked if he worries that he missed out on a normal childhood, he said: “I mean, maybe? I don’t know. I still got to go to Reading. I still had a great time.
“It’s one of those things that everyone wants to tell me I missed out on...but I wouldn’t know, I’ve only lived my life this way.”
