My son started getting headaches at the age of 4. He is 13 now and was diagnosed by his pediatrician at the age of 10. He is episodic, generally related to stress and allergies. I continue to wonder if he really has CH. He says they always occur in the middle of his forehead, they are sometimes accompanied with a stuffy nose. He goes months without them then has them daily for a week or two. He can relieve them with Advil, crackers,Sprite and a 15 minute nap (must go to sleep). They are not as debilitating as some of the examples I have read about here. Or he has an incredibaly high threshold of pain. Have any of you experienced these types of conditiions?
