trigger an auto-immune response that, in turn, invite all kinds of other problems, such as sinus infections. If your immune system becomes repressed or supressed, infections feel welcome to move right in.
I think the hypothalmic deformity is the root of all evil and it produces a domino effect, sending out inappropriate amounts of hormones that cause a storm in the immune system.
However, my question is why this deformed hippopotamus feels the need to come OUT of remission. DO circadian rhythms play a role? DO changing sleep patterns produce more or less of the required amount of seratonin? And if, so, how come not all episodic clusterheads go into cycle every season change? How come some of them go years between cycles?
Chronic clusters, I can understand - the hippopotomus is ALWAYS deformed, so it is ALWAYS doing funky things. Episodic clusters, a hippo of a different colour. I just don't get that part of the puzzle.
