Hi all, me again. When I was diagnosed last year, I was told by the hospital to steer clear of chocolate, coffee, tea, alcohol and cheese. Since then I have been to see my family doctor, but he knows bugger all about CH, which is helpful. I have been pain free apart from some shadows since last October, and have not eaten or drank any of the things I was told to avoid. The more I read about it, the more it seems to me that chocolate etc are connected with migraine - are they also connected with CH, or did the doctors at my hospital just not know the difference? I know that what I have is CH and not migraine - my sister suffers with migraine and gets totally different symptoms to me. Also reading about the symptoms of CH sufferers on this site has confirmed that for me. Should I be avoiding certain foods or does it not make a difference?
