Hi, I am Carl. I have had Ch's since age 17, and have always been curious as to whether or not they are hereditary. My father never talked about such things , though I speculate that maybe he had clusters and told no one (he thought he was some John Wayne super tough guy who only needed aspirin for 3rd degree burns).
I have been sufferiong with this chronically for the last two years (now in my twelfth year of these things.) I am so sorry your son has developed these, and especially at the age of 8, thats way too young to know this kind of pain.
That has got to be rough, to watch your son endure something such as this, I feel for you.
Stay strong, theres always the hope some drug induced genius might come up with a cure someday.
Take care, Carl D
