To my knowledge, only two permanent physiological changes "might" take place as a consequence of prolonged CH's. One is some degree of permanent ptosis (drooping eyelid). This has been fairly well documented. The other is a phenomenon from personal observation. As a teen-ager, I used to have fun dilating my pupils on demand but lost this capability on the affected side after my first CH bout. Now whenever I try, only the left pupil dilates. (My CH has always been on the right side). Hope this helps answer your Q.

By the way, a question is stupid only if it is never asked. Just a humble thought.
