It has always occurred to me that the pain of cluster headaches is so intense precisely because the brain fails to recognize any injury or invasion and fails to induce shock; i.e., fails to release endorphins to modulate the pain. If one were to have lost a limb, to have suffered a gunshot wound, etc., then some relief in the form of naturally occurring morphine-like substances would be forthcoming. How does this relate to clusters? What am I missing, Q?
