I just don't understand how head trauma/brain injury can cause the hypothalmus to become deformed/enhanced like it is in true clusterheads. It just isn't possible.
I think there are more and more neuros out there who are using cluster headaches as a catch-all diagnosis for mysterious head pain. That's a double edged sword, because we're getting the recognition we need by getting them to be able to say the word 'cluster' but what if they're giving non-clusterheads, clusterhead meds? (oops, sorry - Dr. Seuss possessed me there for a minute). But think about it. Playing with fire, if you ask me.
