So, if everyone was chronic I could buy that it was caused by a pinched nerve or misalignment or something along those lines. Those things come and stay like chronic CH.

But my headaches would come every 8 months and last for 6 weeks. Are you suggesting that I'd get out of alingment, correct myself after 6 weeks time and then get out of alignment again in 8 months. And do this for 20 years with never seeing a DC? Just can't go with it, sorry.

I firmmly believe that TRUE cluster headaches are a brain chemistry thing. Serotonin is involved, the hypothalamus is involved, the blood vessels are involved, the nerves are irritated by the dilated blood vessels so they're involved. But that's as far as I can go.
