As a child, I took a pretty good fall at age 5 but X-rays showed no damage. I am above average in height (6'3") and until I took Sansert for several months, was skinny. I am an on again off again smoker. When I get in a cluster I quit. If I am in a cluster and have a cigarette, I will have a headache tomorrow. Once I go about three of four days w/o a headache, I will have a cigarette to see if they have passed. Butalbital will knock out headache triggered from cigarette, but will not touch one triggered by alcohol! Alcohol will trigger one within about an hour. I have never been a heavy drinker or smoker, but do consume both at times... The headache book I read also notes CH sufferers as having hazel eyes (mine are blue), and tall lion-like features. It talks about personalities, too. It says the male CH suuferer comes across as a dominent male, but in reality is a passive male motivated by a dominent female. (Somehow, they even know my wife??) Also says many are alcoholics or ex-alcoholics and heavy smokers. Not all of their data fit me, but some was pretty close.
