    Smoking and CH

    The new theory still needs to be tested ... but implies that cigarettes might create CH and happens when testosterone is low... (my understanding). The hypothesis theory will include several principles: (1) the need of double lifetime tobacco exposure, (2) that cadmium is possibly the primary agent in cigarette smoke that leads to hypothalamic‐pituitary‐gonadal axis toxicity promoting cluster headache, (3) that the estrogenization of the brain and its specific sexually dimorphic nuclei is necessary to develop cluster headache with tobacco exposure, and (4) that the chronic effects of smoking and its toxic metabolites including cadmium and nicotine on the cortex are contributing to the morphometric and orexin alterations that have been previously attributed to the primary headache disorder itself.

  3. Vitamin D deficiency in patients with cluster headache: a preliminary study (https://thejournalofheadacheandpain.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s10194-018-0886-7) Results: There was no significant difference among the patients with cluster headache, migraineurs, and controls. (...) In the 14 patients with seasonal periodicity, patients with periodicity of winter to spring had a trend of lower serum 25(OH)D concentrations than those with periodicity of summer to autumn. Any episodics Winter and Summer on vit D feels improvement while on the regimen? I feel that vitamine D effects testosterone level so any increase could help?... Thoughts?

    Smoking and CH

    Swedish population study founds that onset on episodic for smokers and drinkers were less intense and early; http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0333102417731773 Conclusion; A majority (66.7%) of the patients reported that attacks appear at certain time intervals. In addition, cluster headache patients who were current tobacco users or had a history of tobacco consumption had a later age of disease onset (31.7 years) compared to non-tobacco users (28.5 years). The Cluster Headache Severity Scale score was higher in the patient group reporting sporadic or no alcohol intake than in the groups reporting an alcohol consumption of three to four standard units per week or more. Maximum severity cluster headache patients were characterised by higher age at disease onset, greater use of prophylactic medication, reduced hours of sleep, and lower alcohol consumption compared to the non-cluster headache maximum severity group.

    2017 Clusterbusters Conference

    Hello there, First post on CB! Got (finally) diagnosed last summer while on kip 8 and 9 as episodic after 15 years of "weird" headaches. Thanks to all of you at CB; I bust, i take d3, energy drinks, oxygen and loads of information... and it helps. I feel so isolated though... so i'm going to Chicago; see you there! Jeff
