I'll repeat what I wrote on Elaines theory forum: when my nose is blocked during an attack it is not because there is too much fluid inside, there is actually very little fluid/mucus. It is like the nostril on the pain side had pinched itself shut.

Knowing this I tried, and with succes, to abort shadows and mild attacks by pulling open the nostril and giving very loud, unladylike snorts.

I don't think CH have anything to do with not enough fresh air, not mine anyway. I mostly get them when on vacation - walks on cliff tops and through woods and being outside much more than at home.

Let's think some more about the way oxygen reaches the brain or whatever.
