I don't claim to be any kind of expert on this condition, but I'd guess that someone could suffer from CH without having lots of pain.

It would all depend on how you react to pain, and how your body reacts to the condition.

For me, the pain is of a different type than any other pain I've ever experienced. It's both dull and sharp at the same time with a feeling of intense pressure. It feels like a small section of your brain is being destroyed over and over. I could never confuse it with a toothache or any other dental pain, it's much worse than that.

Then again, it seems that many people on this board have suffered worse pain than I have, and that is just sad. I feel for these people.

Anyone who suffers from this horrible afflication, regradless of the actual pain they suffer, has my symphathies.
