... are you saying that the pain switches side from one individual attack to the next, or switches only from one cycle to the next cycle but remains on the same side while in a single cycle?
This does not seem to be the "classic CH" etiology, but from what I'm picking up here, it is not as uncommon as I thought.
CH being misdiagnosed as something else is entirely understandable, although unfortunate. That is the route most of us arrived here by. My concern here is whether the CH diagnosis might be masking the diagnosis of something else, but for the CH would be more visable for diagnosis and treatment.
