Read Kris' question. He was obviously led to believe, by this article, that his clusters are caused by apnea. He thinks if he treats his apnea he won't get any more clusters.
Now if you said 8 out of 10 cluster sufferers are alcoholics you'd be closer to asking the same question (and having been at 2 OUCH conventions, 8 out of 10 is pretty close to right).
The article should say apnea and the associated lack of O2 may trigger a cluster headache but it is not the cause of the headaches.
