I have often thought that many of my CH-attacks were the result of a post-traumatic stress withdrawl. I used to run on stress. I was a stress-junkie. I used stress as a means of producing adrelene and endorphins. Never got a CH-attack during the peak-stress event. Didn't need to, the body was already pumping out everything it wanted. Stop the stress and WHAM-O!
Perhaps the brain functions which normally guard against brain-flooding are relaxed during REM.
As I keep saying, the CH-process does not have to be a coordinated event. Pain is apparently an easy thing to produce and as a by-product produces the chemicals which are desired by the CH-invoking cause.
Unfortunately, pain is designed to be felt. That is inconsequential to the CH-invoking process. If pain is not felt in the brain, but in the mind, even better for this theory, because wherever the pain is felt, there are cells right next door which feel the euphoria.
Einstien said "Keep things simple, but only simple enough." -- that's all I'm attempting to do here.
