It has been my theory (everybody has one) that deprivation of oxygen in the bloodstream--and of course there could be many reasons, thus the numerous triggers--is the one common factor in CH. Drummer says no, and I haven't found him to be wrong on the facts, yet. Many years ago, a flight surgeon in the Air Force told us that the blood stream will accept nicotine and alcohol more readily than oxygen! It is logical to me that the brain says, "Hmmm. I'm not getting enough O2. You blood vessels expand so more can get through. The vessels stretch the encircling nerves and OUCH! I am not educated in the sciences, especially the human body, and I'm sure there are many more complicating factors involved. It just seems that our oxygen delivery abilities are basically involved. I guess you can tell that I like oxygen, especially when the bad dude comes knocking.
