1) From Stavi's description of her headache patterns, she would certainly qualify as a chronic clusterhead, at least for the last year. (see her post #57940)
2) You are correct - there are no toxic mushrooms to be found in the UK that even remotely resemble Liberty Cap (psilocybe semilanceata) mushrooms. There MAY be some non-toxic species that do not contain psilocybin that vaguely resemble Liberty Cap (none that I know of), but if they were consumed by mistake, the worst that would happen is your headaches would continue.
Liberty Cap mushrooms are very distinctive and difficult to confuse with other species, so you probably hit the jackpot, you lucky dog!
You may want to e-mail Flash about this, as well.
