The statistical gap between men and women on CH
has been closing. It used to be 6:1, it now may be
as low as 3:1

I think alot of women may be either misdiagnosed as
having Migraines (cause that's what they're supposed to
get) when they have CH, or perhaps they get Migraine & Cluster
and they are only diagnosed with migraines

Perhaps workplace stress is a component, and as there
are more women in the workplace, more are prone to CH.

I was surprised to see the number of women on this board.
Given that the internet (at least a couple of years ago) is
predominantly male (is this still true?), it may be
that CH is far more prevalent among woman than is
realized. Of course this isn't a scientific sampling, just
my observations.
