I wrote this as response to someone's post on the harvard neuro message board. He propossed a theory that pounding 4-5 beers at the onset of a CH could abort it within 10 mins. he admitted this was not a good practice, but was just sharing his experience.

So i thought i would share mine...

Funny you mention this. I was in a strong cycle the end of Febuary and went to Mardi Gras with some buddies. I drank HEAVILY for 5 days. no head aches.I was drinking mostly vodka, but drank about 5 shots worth in a night, a few beers as well.

got home and didn't drink. headahces came back.

the other night i had exactly 1.75 beers when it happened. a full out 10 in the kip scale. worst ever.

who knows. could be chance, luck, what not. might be something said for alcohol effecting the nervous system. similar to pain killers.

interesting theory
