Something like over 95% of my CH-attacks are within the first two hours of falling asleep. Half the remainder are within 2 hours of my scheduled wake-up time. In my case, that is the way it is.

I usually sleep 6-7 hours a night and have one night a week of 10-12 hours sleep. Except for CH-attacks, I sleep very soundly, almost never being awakened during my sleep for other reasons.

A person's natural sleep requirement has nothing to do with the person's ability to fit that into the lifestyle. There is a great deal of stress involved in forcing the natural requirement into a standard lifestyle if they are really different. I believe the point is that the healthy lifestyle should conform to the body's requirement, or suffer the consequences.

As to the rest of the article, I thought it might be curious to look at the sleep research in order to better understand CH, especially the sleep-attack pattern feature of CH.

Todd, do you not get the mid-sleep attacks? I thought they were pretty much a "given" in the diagnosis of CH.
