They must've chose that research in the pub.
I reckon Maggioni lost the drinking game.

Hi peter, I would be interested in reading this article, but am unable to download it.... Is it it an academic paper that you need to be registered for.....? Or can you put a PDF on of it, or a summary of the findings?

thanx

Ermm, I'm with Phil on this one, surely if you have committed suicide you are hardly  likely to be bothered about whether it causes cluster headache!  Seems a bit odd to me!  Definitely been at the funny stuff.

Because I can't seem to see the actual article.... I had assumed it was about.... If you'd been effected by another persons suicide, might this be a trigger for CHs?

I can't see how if you are affected psychologically by a suicide that it triggers CH which is a neurological disease.  We know head trauma can trigger CH, but apart from that it is still a primary headache condition, not secondary to some other disease.

Of course you are speaking of triggers in an existing condition, not the cause of CH.
Many things can trigger an attack whilst in bout.
A lesion in the brain can cause Cluster-like headaches, but it's fairly well assumed that a larger hypothalamus is responsible for the condition.
Extremely likely that's genetic.

It's about £2.50 for members to view, Registration is free.

A tub of ice cream would be a better investment. Smile
