The study mentioning nitrate and lack of stress among others, was by a Swedish university in a newspaper - keep trying to find it again as I've printed out hundreds of pages re CH, will get back to you later.
In the meantime, try interview with Dr. Goadsby:
where he clearly states CH being a problem of brain function, NOT blood vessels - and that the brain is subtly abnormal in CH.
If you want to try Swedish university research:
Brief translation of the last paragraph:
"Neuropeptides play an important role in pain perception. The pharmaceutical industry works hard to develop new pain medication. Horton's headache (CH) is a condition of great pain. It has been discovered that 2 peptides are set free in connection with this pain and that knowledge is being used for development of a new medication. Patients will be painfree by taking medicine which will "close off" activity of peptides. Neuropeptides will be very important in the future for health and sickness. ..... Next year the European neuropeptideclub will meet in Pecs, Hungary...."
There is hope, you see.
Try US research regarding neuropeptides - maybe something similar in English version.
