"Lyme patients don't get migraines as first symptoms".

Cluster headache patients don't get migraines either.

To me this just enforces why we shouldn't be too quick to let someone believe they have cluster headaches. I know we're trying to be nice and understanding and all that "stuff" but CH is different than migraine or CPH or tension or sinus. We don't do anyone any good by quickly reinforcing their belief that they have CH.

Having had CH for 30+ years, watching the postings on this board for more than a year and a half, I belive 30%-50% of the new posters showing up here, DO NOT HAVE CH.

Sorry if anyone takes offense to this post but Jeanine is a perfect example of the harm that is done. For a year she's been trying to cure CH only to find out she doesn't have CH but headaches from Lyme Disease.
