...near the end I noted they said "symptoms (modules)" ...I then went back and reread it using the word "symptom" in place of "module".

...and so there are many types of headaches with many varying symptoms (modules) I missing something? What's the big deal with that?

If there's one thing I learned from this board...not all CH's are the same. Though similar in many "modules", there are as many variations as there are people's names. Ergo: no "magic bullet"

If the knowledge gained from this "discovery" results in in an overall treatment plan which is based on "whatever works best for each different person" ...duh...

So I see three lights lit here...
1 (the good)...those that pontificate about and set themselves up as omnicient judges about who does and who does not belong to our Cluster Club get the wind knocked out of there sails.

2 (the bad).....every Tom, den and Mary with a headache get a Cluster Club badge.

3 (the ugly).....some fuckin idiot, instead of researching clusters, is gonna get a million dollar gov't grant to change the word "symptom" to "module".

Good Grief
