Recommendations for CH literature/research papers?

Recommended Posts

Greetings one and all!

                  Anybody know where a fella can find some good, quality, print literature on CH? I'm specifically interested in those early, 18th century patient descriptions, as well as any new and cutting-edge research work. Or even just in depth analyses of CH pathogenesis. The more technical the better. I'm kicking around the idea of writing a sort of memoir-exposition hybrid covering my own experience with the disease, mainstream treatments, busting, and a general history of the medicinal applications of hallucinogenic tryptamines. Basically an advocacy piece for the legalization of medicinal psychedelics.

                  Summer has come and gone, but it's never too late to share your summertime CH reading favorites!

There's a lot in this book, including the canards about leonine features, hazel eyes, and rarity in women, as well as some other even crazier previous assertions.  I think if you click on this it will take you to the general area of the book: https://books.google.com/books?id=aJRV199FZcoC&pg=PA306&lpg=PA306&dq=natural+history+of+cluster+headaches&source=bl&ots=fyJk6GA3h7&sig=4b9Sr072xVPYxzucg8arOZIX-fA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CEgQ6AEwBmoVChMIvbuq563kyAIVRRo-Ch2bIw6P#v=onepage&q&f=false     If not, the book is Wolff's Headache (2001), beginning on p 283.

 

This article also looks interesting -- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15745624 and on the right side of the page is some other stuff.  There's this:  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2117620/    The wikipedia entry has some info, including this: >>CH has alternately been called erythroprosopalgia of Bing, ciliary neuralgia, erythromelalgia of the head, Horton's headache, histaminic cephalalgia, petrosal neuralgia, sphenopalatine neuralgia, vidian neuralgia, Sluder's neuralgia, Sluder's syndrome, and hemicrania angioparalyticia.<<

I've never heard of it called "Sluder's syndrome". I despise the term "headache" associated with clusters because this term is so misleading. I looked up Sluder's syndrome and found an interesting article (For 2 reasons). I've had 2 SPGNB's before and this was apparently done the first time in the late 1800's by Dr. Greenfield Sluder. (Article written by Dr. Steven D Waldman. MD)

PS. These 2 SPGNB's that I had done by a pain management doctor did NOT help me and in fact, made me worse !!

Thanks for the info on SPGNB's... apparently this the newest cutting edge treatment according to the docs at Stanford. I just gotta laugh at what the so called "experts" are really doing with their research time. I would remove Stanford from the preferred list of doctors personally.
