New Inquiry - March 2008:
A father asks:
I am not sure if this of any use to you but I am a 40 year old Australian male who suffers from CH. However, I now believe my daughter who is now 7, has suffered from CH since about the age of 3.
She would tend to get what she called a dizzy spell when she was younger, to now a pain in her eye and forehead around the same time each night not long after she has gone to bed. She would be constantly thrashing around until the episode had run its course. A paediatrician diagnosed migraine pain, but looking at it now after just having a recent 9 day attack myself, I believe that what she has experienced on a number of occasions is a CH. She has not had any since our last Spring.
As I understand how painful a CH is, I am concerned for my daughter if in fact this is what she has, particularly as it appears that it is uncommon in minors.
