.. I'm very happy to say that I think it's very unlikely that you have CH. It sounds like you may be getting sinus headaches, and possibly migraine as well. I know what you mean about getting to the doctor and forgetting everything that happens when you are having a headache. What I would suggest is that next time you have an attack, have some one around. Get them to write down everything you tell them about the pain - where it is, how severe it is, what you do to manage the pain (lie down, walk about, shut your eyes, cold flannel, hot shower - anything). It is important that you do this WHILE you are having the attack. Next time you see your doctor, this will act as a prompt list so you can tell the doctor everything and give them more of a chance of diagnosing you properly.
I hope that you find the correct diagnosis for your ailment.
Wishing you all the best,
