I have CH's and I pace and beat the hell out of my head. My left eye tears profusely and turns red. Only the left nostril runs and most importantly I CANNOT SIT STILL DURING AN ATTACK. IT SIMPLY IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO SIT STILL. I don't have a lightning bolt pain shooting through my face as most people do with TN. The research I did before I had my surgery led me to the Gamma Knife Procedure which is the procedure where they use radiation to attack the nerves. In TN, the procedure is very successful but not for CH patients. Most CH sufferers who go through this procedure are still suffering w/ CHA's and have numb faces. I am so glad I heard from those of you on this site when I was researching the procedure. It sure saved me.
