Being gay - nope, doesn't appear to make a difference. The Beast doesn't care even if you like sheep.
Distorted sleep patterns, 4 hours here, 4 hours there - yep, I think that's a commonality here.
Early mornings - sure is a common thing for my sufferer. He's up before the birds.
Anxiety - again, sure - I think CH causes anxiety.
Binge drinking - can't really comment on that one, doesn't apply to my hubby.
Psoriasis - actually, strangely enough, this HAS been discussed here. There is a direct connection between psoriasis and a candida overgrowth. There has been a lot discussed here about the candida connection to cluster headaches. Just type 'candida' in the search button, above right (or 'psoriasis') and get comfy to do some reading. I remember hearing/reading that there is often a psoriasis outbreak before a cluster cycle starts.
Hope this answers some of your questions, Sam.
