You asked, ďWhy couldnít a TV show do that for CHís?Ē Dr. Becker is very, very cynical. So am I. I believe I may have the answer to your question. I think the answer is marketing.
Let me explain. Open your local phone book to any page you wish. Pick a name at random. Call that number. Ask the person at the end of the phone if they have ever heard of an illness known as Migraine. Iíll bet the person at the end of the phone line says yes. Iíll bet the person even knows someone who has Migraines. Iíll bet the person on the other end of the phone line can talk and talk and talk about Migraines. Now ask that same person if they have ever heard of an illness called Cluster Headache. Iíll bet they say no.
Yes, it would be wonderful to see Cluster Headache mentioned on television. Iíve only seen it mentioned on television when I did an interview with the local news stations here in Rochester, NY. Iíve never seen Cluster Headache mentioned before or since then on television. Iíll bet I never see it mentioned again. I sure hope that I am wrong.
