But not an ordinary one. I'll try to use jstone to avoid confusion too. Does the Lithium you are on have any mental confusion, memory problems, etc? I believe you said that you also got your clusters in the morning as I do. There must be similarities with individuals that have clusters occuring at the same time. My grandfather had clusters too. Out of 11 children and dozens of grandchildren I seem to be the only one who has been lucky enough to share this wonderful part of his biology. As far as I know he got his late at night but the information is sketchy. I'm the one that actually diagnosed his headaches after my Aunt told me about the Horner's syndrome (weeping eye) and the nature of the pain, his pacing, etc. If this turns out to have some genetic influence, perhaps there is hope for a genetic therapy in the future. Cross your fingers.
