In Reply to: Sleep Apnea is found in 80% of CH sufferers... posted by Teviah on April 27, 2001 at 14:47:08:

Where does it say that a lack of O2 can trigger a CH?
I don't recall the article verbatum but I don't think it says that. I think it just says a lot of clusterheads have apnea. Does the article say if the apnea is obstructive or central? Other articles also say that a lot of clusterheads are smokers and drinkers. The survey shows an abnormal number with hazel/blue eyes. Do any of these things cause CH?
If we're just assuming that since O2 stops a CH then a lack of O2 must cause them, I don't think we can do that. That would be like saying a lack of Imitrex causes CH.

Just one of thoses things I feel strongly about. I guess I should chill out some.
