identifies CH. The last question: how long is an attack? (if it is in the range 20mins- 2 hours, it is definitely CH)

In this (and anyway, in all other) case.... welcome to your new family... :-)

About the question.... hmmmm.. I think you can get a lot of different responses here. I give you mine:
I was always allergic (cat fur, fish, and some other stuff) and I have had 25 years of CH (3 months per year, 4 attacks per day)

In the last 3 years, my allergies improved highly (e.g., if now I eat an oz. of fish... I could die for anaphylactyc shock)
In these last 3 years I didn't got CH attacks. I am pain free from 40 months!

I'm absolutely NOT sure this may be the remission cause. But these are the facts.

On the other hand, I'm more sure the remission comes from my modified life habits: I work, sleep, live always with a window open, I avoid any public place with few oxygen, or crowded.

Happy you find us, sad you have CH.... ciao from Italy, and sorry for my fractured english!
