I have a little bump on my gums that I can feel with the tip of my tongue, but this bump itself is less sensitive to touch than the surroundings. When an attack is imminent, this spot start to hurt, not much (I could live with that all day), but after 5-10 minutes the the pain flares up and within minutes reaches peak level (which is now damped down to a K3 or K4 by Verapamil).
If I get to O2 during the first phase, the attack never goes beyond a slight twinge. The same for the nightly attack, and I am in the lucky position to wake up when the precursor starts, and there is always ample time to get on the O2.

Probably you are unconsciously suppressing the precursor signs during sleep (who want's to get a CH attack?). But if you could train yourself to use these precursor as a wake up signal, there would be more time for abortive measures.
I have no idea how such a feat could be achieved, but maybe one of the many meditation experts on the board could help.
