and there is definately some type of physiological disorder. An important characteristic of CH's is the stuffy nose, rhinitis, or whatever you want to call it. Irritants can exacerbate this condition and is this physciological disorder is unkown, one simple alternative is to avoid these irritants.
From posts on this board, weather conditions were contributed by some, twisting of the head, I have stated a sinus virus that augmented the affliction. Nothing could be done about that. Why not observe the conditions where CH's are more prevalent? At present there is no cure for CH's.
Perhaps my choice of a permanent oxygen mask was poor, should have said a space suit just meaning for this child to try a different environment. I hate to see a young child suffer and the variety of common CH treatments for children is very limited.
So why is O2 is effective? Is it that it flushes the body out of these toxins? I didn't invent this concept, but was suggested to me by my neuro that specializes in CH's. He still tells me the cause is unknown, but to attempt to learn where your CH's are worse. Certainly doesn't hurt to try.
I have never stated that irritants were the cause of CH's, I don't think anyone knows the cause. but irritants can make both the intensity and the frequency of these headaches worse in some people. So let's get this straight.
How many people have come unto this board thinking certain foods were the cause? I won't discount this either, but if avoiding certain food groups helps, then avoid.
