Nope, blood pressure is normal, except when driving in NYC or sitting in NJ traffic.
No psychosis or depression or epilepsy. Great grandmother had congestive heart failure but she was 80 some years old and had pnuemonia.
BUT...I can say this much. I come from a LONG line of migraineurs. My grandmother used to tie strips of torn sheets around her head like a tourniquet. My normally very calm mother used to scream like a banshee...BUT only during a headache. My baby sister is coming down off of two months of medical tests because the migraines were coming CONSTANTLY. Now, she is showing signs of CH. My grandmother has told me my great grandmother had them and called them "Rose Fever" (Meaning the headaches came with the bloom of the roses...leading me to believe she may have had episodic migraine or CH)
