Day and night cycles differ perhaps due to body
chemistry and what affects sleep-wake cylces.
Also, with some evidence suggesting that CH may
seem to enjoy the benefits of being in part a
psycological disoroder, as well as seemingly be
part stress "hangover", the lowering of psycological
barriers (focus, concentration, positive self-talk)
together with the relaxation (stress "hangver")
of attempting to sleep may very well influence
the severity of the attacks in daily/nightly cycles.
Then again, all of the above may be completly wrong
and the difference is simply natural v. artificial
lighting influences. Who knows.
To test what you have noticed, and draw a hypothesis
you may want to change your sleeping habits - sleep
during the day instead and see what happens and how the attacks
measure with those you get at night.
