WOW! This is an excellent summary of relevant research. I happen to have both chronic CH and chronic migraine along with vestibular issues (dizziness and vertigo). I've been led to believe this is rare, but according to a study cited here, it's not uncommon at all.

I found several abstracts here that I've been seeking to learn more about. Very happy this research is happening. Thanks for posting!

Not rare for me... A few times a year I get vertigo, blurred spots, traveling numbness on my left arm, followed by 2 hours of migraine headache, which is nothing compared to a CH I get. lol If it is rare, I have them as well. If CH weren't enough...
