The top of the list would be the people that hang a shingle and charge outrageous prices and loosely prescribe meds without checking neither your physical condition nor your medical records to learn what you have been on. They are just essentially guessing at which medication they think may work and even prescribe contraindicating drugs that make your previous CH's feel more like a migraine. The consequence besides having to pay the outrageous price, is too continue to suffer or suffer even worse.
Next on the list would be medical supply houses that fill your O2 tanks with car exhaust or whatever is handy at the moment. Not enough body bags for these kind of people.
I am sure the people that have headaches too are well meaning, so are they seeking sympathy? Doesn't pay to seek sympathy with CH's, best to keep it private, you just become a burden to both your employer and loved ones. Would be nice if CH's were just a one time affair like a broken leg.
Then there are those that always point out someone that has it worse than you, like that is suppose to make you feel better.
