...who said that OUCH could become a data bank for cluster researchers, like the Kettering Institute on cancer. It's likely that every clusterhead has had an MRI, or will eventually. This imaging test is used by neuros to rule out tumor or other trauma as the cause of your pain. It occurred to me that these images could be an important research tool for some future scientist, or even our own Dr. Goadsby, who would not be looking for tumors. We, or our insurance companies, paid about $1000 for these tests, and as someone said a few days ago, our records belong to us. I'm sure our science committee would not mind archiving our records, huh, Paul & Jack? Why not get copies of all our medical records while we're at it, especially things like blood-chemistry readings? As with the cluster survey that Bennie Sue and others have worked so hard on, the more data we gather about this weird bunch of losers, the better. :-)
