I read on another site, that CH's commonly occur in jan and july due to being longest and shortest days of daylight, can anyone add to this claim. Because its always jan for past 10 years and around mid year. Thanks katy

Hi Katy

Ben started a thread some time ago about this & it does look like there is some connection.

I dug back through Ben's posts; click on this link it will take you to the thread concerned & I think you will find the answers there & it does make for very interesting reading.

Just my 2 cents worth...

As an former episodic suffer that then became chronic and now as currently not suffering not sure where I stand, but for 15 years my bouts would either start the last week September/first week October or last week February/first week March.

They then introduced a daylight saving trial in Perth for three years (moving the clock back an hour in November/forward an hour in March from memory) and my clusters then started occuring in December and would last a lot longer in fact they turned chronic.

So my experience says to me that there is a link between time and the body clock, although, not sure this relates to days of sunlight.

Hope this helps

Cheers
Guy

G'day Guy, good to see you've gone green icon

Katy, Ben was asking if anyone noticed their attacks coincided with the solstices i.e. longest and shortest days of the year. To many people the start of a bout seems to occur around about then.
For me, it's not the solstices but the change of season from Summer to Autumn, and especially from Winter to Spring (bear in mind i'm in the northern hemisphere, so back to front from Australia) .
Why is it so? Who knows, it just is. Except for the last couple of years i've missed bouts completely- which i'm not complaining about- it's just a little weird. Whatever, we keep on trying to understand what the hell is going on, and try and come up with some way to keep the attacks under control. Good luck to you,

cheers peter.

G'day Peter,

Agree for me, when I was an episodic suffer as mentioned not sure where I stand at present, it was never the change in solstices, but roughly the change of season i.e. winter to spring or summer to autumn.

Hope all is well with you.

Guy

Hi Katy,
My onset is usually at the end of winteer into spring and is often preceeded by some early season hayfever, so from mid to late July I can start anytime
