You're confirming what the study says: STRESS is not a trigger factor, rather the opposite.
The hypothalamus IS running your body clock, your hormone system, your digestion (hunger, thirst) and your emotions, also your temperature regulation. That's why you get this "whacky" feeling, when it is overactive and causing what you call "biochemical imbalance".
Just like you I can tell when I start having a lack of appetite, suddenly go up a few pounds in a day (water retention), feel different mentally, worry a lot, anxiety, etc. Once it sets in, fluids are shed - I also often notice a strange sensation of being very hungry and not wanting to eat at the same time. Have you ever noticed that your head temp. increases during attacks, also sweating on head ?? That's the increased hypoth. activity and overheating of it.
You may have a typical cluster with a clearly defined period, but once it has become chronical they just come to stay - no more parties then.
