Was reading an article by a Dr./Professor of neurology at Baylor College of Medicine regarding how to distinguish neck-induced from vascular pain. His essential diagnostic distinction is that a patient who has an aura, nasal congestion, eye tearing or full Horner's Syndrome has a vascular headache. He also mentions that headache caused from neck problems (skeletal or muscular) often present as pain behind the eye.

Not gonna make any judgements. Just thought that if anyone has pain behind the eye (thought to be CH) but doesn't have the teary eye, runny nose or Horner's Syndrome, they may want to explore the possibility that it's not a vascular headache.
