I recently appreared before the Social Security board in an on-going attempt to obtain disability. Iam a chronic sufferer of CH and had to retire early as a result. CH is basically unknown to them and I was asked to describe the pain. I described same as follows as would be interested if my description and experience is similiar to other CH's out there.

"Take a 100ft coil of barbed wire....heat in in a very hot fire until the entire coil is red hot...then slowly feed one end of this coil through your eyebrow and down and around and into your left temple running it behind the eyeball...and then every few seconds pull about 10 ft through as quickly as you can and continue this process until you run out of barbed wire then start the whole process over again at an undetermined time.......several times during the day"
