I was talking to my father yesterday who was at his 50th college reunion this past week. He was talking about CHs to an old classmate who's now a doctor and the doctor had apparently diagnosed himself with CH years ago and sometimes would try the latest meds for prophylactics, to no avail. He didn't do this very often because his headaches weren't so bad where he felt he'd need to take anything for them and would just wait the 15 minutes for them to leave. Something about a doctor misdiagnosing himself gives me a sense of justice (as long as you don't consider how many other people he's misdiagnosed too). Oh yeah, he also diagnosed himself as chronic even though he had long breaks between the single attacks he'd get. Oh yeah. The reunion was for Harvard. Not very encouraging, when you think about it.
