This from a spanish medical journal
(really, was 1st hit doing a Yahoo search):
SUNCT type headache: a new case
We report a new case of short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing (SUNCT). This rare headache, described in 1978, shares clinical traits with trigeminal neuralgia and cluster headache and its diagnostic classification as a unilateral headache with autonomic involvement has been the subject of considerable debate. The etiology of SUNCT is unknown, although it is considered a highly difficult pain to treat. We discuss our patient's symptoms and response to treatment with carbamazepine.
Key words: SUNCT. Carbamazepine.
my STUPID comment of the day:

I think I have a whole new syndrome myself-
lets call it "Maine Air Influenced Cephalgia",
MAIC Syndrome

it is bafflingly similar to cluster headache and SUNCT, but only occurs within an hour of taking a brisk walk in the woods on a warm winter day, near the 45th parallel, within 20 miles of the Atlantic Ocean

like I'm beginning to get right this minute BTW-
some of you characters may claim you can type with a level 4 or 5 attack, even higher-
I personally think that claim would do well on my tomatoes next summer

heading for the O2 - ketch ya later
