If any one questions that Ch is not physiological in nature(sp)I'd love to debate it.(please,please, debate me.)

You know why dr.s love twin studies? It's because they get to prove what is nature vs. nuture. Cluster headaches is nature. It's in the DNA. Maybe in 5 years down the road when they finish decoding the whole DNA structure of a human we will have the direct proof to what most of us already know. Cluster headaches is not in our minds, it's not stress, it's not what you ate last night, it's not psychological, it's not because of the great drugs you used in your twenties,(or still using now) It's a problem with your hypothalamus. How do i know this? Because my twin had ch on her left side, and I get them on my right. That's proof enough for me. If it's physiological in nature then it can be heriditary as well. The fact that medical journals do not report this is because they are not getting enough input from people that have a relative with Ch also.
