Unfortunately, there isn't likely to be any "proof" of a mechanism for CH for a long time. What I offered earlier was merely an hypothesis.
The serotonin theory doesn't really explain the pattern of your attacks either.
I have no idea of what might iniate a cluster bout. It may have to do with a splitting of the phases of the two SCN on either side of the brain. I don't know if there is actually a way to measure this in humans (as it has been done in lab animals), but I think it would be really interesting to test, both during and after a cluster bout.
Keep up the good work. That's a heck of a schedule you've got there.
