Not to be nitpicky or anything. As long as I am, the physiological thing that has manifested in my brain is denser grey matter in the hypothalamus region. What manifests in migrainerurs isn't that at all. Also, what manifests in their brain is a wave, actually a tidal wave of electrical impulses that starts from the back of the head and surges up and forward (if I remember that Nature Magazine article correctly) which doesn't happen to CH folks. We have certain manifestations that allows oxygen to end the attack while migraineurs generally don't.
Did the missing slash confuse me? No. Not at all. How silly of me to have thought that punctuation added clarity to a written message. So you're saying that you have both conditions and that feverfew helped with your migraines? Great. Now I'm left with Annemarie's question above. As for me, after an MRI, piss test, blood test, etc... my doctor pronounced I have cluster headaches. Why? Did the extra words of different types of headaches confuse you?
Actually, I've found positive responses don't have to mean someone says *Yes. You are right.* While the word positive has a HAPPY :-) sounding ring to it, dissent can be quite the positive reply. However, quite frankly, I don't care if everyone in the world buys it. I just hope they wouldn't buy it from some anonymous person online.
