For what it's worth, I get migraines & CH. Migraine is a horrible pain, and you don't know how long it's going to go on for. As well as the pain, you have the added joy of vomiting your guts out, which makes the throbbing in your head feel even worse BUT there is plenty of understanding and support for people with migraine. It IS a horrible condition, but so many people sympathise and try to understand - almost everyone knows some one with migraine. Before I found this site, I had NO ONE who knew how I felt when I was in a CH cycle. There was no one to talk to, no one to empathise with me. My partner knew I was in a lot of pain, but just through looking through this site with me he now has a real understanding of just how debilitating and depressing this whole thing is. Without denigrating the misery that is caused by migraine, I for one think that this is such a valuable place for CH sufferers that it should not be clouded by including other - completely different - illnesses, no matter how serious they are.
