I think Goadsby pioneered that study about seeing the deformity but other studies have since confirmed it.
I'm not saying anyone here isn't a true clusterhead, you've misinterpreted that. I'm just saying that I can't believe that head trauma can cause clusters, simply because the area of the brain that dictates if you ARE going to have clusters (seratonin balances/hypothalmus function) is so deeply protected within your skull that an injury on the outside of your skull can't go there. I think the two events are totally unrelated. As Paco said, I think stubbing your toe has as much impact with regard to clusters as a knock on the noggin.
Pardon me for having an opinion. I'll just be going back to my corner now and firmly shutting m'mouth.
