I tend to agree with Ted - you either didn't mention the main characteristics of CH or said things that implied other HA types.
For example, vision loss, vomiting, tingling and loss of feeling in limbs are not typical CH symptoms.
Additionally, one of the most telling characteristics of CH is the rapid onset- 1 to 5 minutes, usually.
Some people (myself included) tried in our early CH days to find a dark, cool, quiet place and ride it out, but sleep was and is never an option.
And tylenol is generally regarded as totally ineffective for CH.
Check out the link below for a comparison of common traits of various HA types.
I hope you find some help for your suffering.
