I think it would be easy for anyone to say thay people who suffer from migraines or CH are likely candidates to get "moody" or suffer "anxiety".
I'd tell this "doc", well Duh! Though I'd also bet if a poll were taken on anxiety disorder, the majority of sufferers would have had this disorder for years before CH.
Sad thing I see going on these days is that the pharmacuetical companies have found a new target audience. They don't care that there's a huge difference between stress, anxiety, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, depression, and various types of phobias. They see cash flow. So we see commercials of people dancing around in the clouds in purple robes all ready to rejoin life at it's fullest. Take Paxil ... all will be well ... Busphar, live again! ...etc, etc.
They and the doctors hand this stuff out like candy and could care less what your real problem is. How many of us have been given antidepressants at one time or another for CH treatment?
Money ... it's a crime!
(I really really really held back!) ;)
