just a clever ploy to really say that it is impossible for women to get CHs, isn't it? ;-)
OK. Seems like you do have material to back your claim up. Well, that's good, assuming that you're correct -- which I am starting to do.
I just read drummer's post from last July and have to say that I think that he's an idiot. But I say it gratuitously as that fact has nothing to do with what we're discussing.
If there is a trend in the diagnosis, I still believe, if it follows the way to all other trends, that it will be better for us in the long run as more and more will know of it. And then the trend will die. Let these simple fucks who wish that they had it, the overdiagnosing docs, and all else who want to wear billboards with the words Cluster Headache on it be our free advertising. And at the same time, while there is some noise being made and attention drawn to it, we can educate people as to what they REALLY are and what the symptoms really are.
