If 80% of clusterheads smoke, or used to smoke,
If 80% of us have sleep apnea,
If there's a high incidence of depressions,

These can NOT be the eggs. If either smoking, apnea or depressions would be 'the cause', all people with depressions, PLUS all who smoke ( or used to ) Plus .... plus ..... would have CH!

Thank god this is not the case.
To me it makes sense that there's more to CH than the headaches: it might be a "syndrome". And that fits in to the hypothalamus theory, as this thing controls MANY functions, not only having CH.

But the final question is: is it valid to apply logic to the beast? Whenever I seemed to manage, it escaped somehow *evil grin*
