Recently my doctor has told me that CH may be related to cycles of light-- hypothalamus-- change of season. My attacks came on like clockwork (no pun intended) I got the first one on Oct. 18th. It was about a 7 (kip). From then it's been hardcore. I've had about 40 attacks, about 8 of which were 10s. I notice that before a meteorological event (i.e. rain, snow or big temp change), I get an attack. Coincidence or not, it's pretty strange. I got 2 shadows during the night and a 6 this morning. It was dark when I was woken up during the night and I just went for the oxygen, but when I looked outside this morning there was snow on the ground and now it's falling pretty steadily. The last 2 major attacks I had, the temp changed 15 degrees in 24 hours. During the summer I'm usually much better. This summer was beatiful and I felt great.My second point, or question rather is whether anyone has had any side effects from taking too much oxygen. Aaaaaahhhhhh cluster fading. I find typing these posts can be therapeutic during an attack. :)
