I think that there is an important link between our spinal column and CH. When you impact on your tail bone or on your head, the force will travel through your spinal column and may damage more than one site. Imagine the impact of falling on your a... in your cervical column. If your nerves are in some way demyelinated and the opportunity exists for pain signals to travel in an inordinate way, you may feel great pain in your sinus or your maxillary region but it may simply be the reverberation of a pain you experience in your neck.
In this, CH may resemble a sciatica problem where the origin of pain is the lower back but the bulk of the pain may be in the middle of the leg for some, in the back of the knee for other or even in a foot.
A good article can be read at :
In that article, the intermingling of great occipital nerve with the trigeminal nerve structure is well described. It should be read by everyone here.
Best of luck and pain free days.
