I have slipped on ice and landed on the back of my head with a loud crack many a time, was hit in the head with a baseball bat once as a kid, been in a couple of car accidents, once tried to put my head down on a rollercoaster and the wind jerked my head back up (which caused a mis-alignment in my neck - fixed by Chiro), used to head-butt lots of things and people as a youngster, banged my head on the concrete wrecking my bike a couple of times... Hmmm, still thinking...

It would be my guess though, that if any of these things were to be the cause of my CH, it would have showed up on my Catscan, MRI, or my MRA. So far, they have found nothing physically wrong.

It would be interesting though, if several CHeads could get a full body scan, and see if they have anything wrong inside the body that is evident in each CH sufferer.

P.S. - I still think that maybe the culprit lies elsewhere in the body, but the head is merely suffering the symptom - but that is just my uneducated guess. I just find it interesting that BP meds work for some, and there is a change in heart rate and BP during an attack.
