Hi Jasmine & Welcome to clusterville

The answer to this question is "the jury is still out".

Some people report being effected with CH after a trauma but others who like in my case have never been in an accident or traumatic situation but have still got CH.

Yes I have had my fair share of sporting accidents but nothing that could be considered as traumatic.

Cheers
Barry

Hi Jasmine

I have no evidence to suggest there is any correlation between head trauma and CH.

But in my case I fractured my skull in a pushbike accident whe I was 11 years old and then had a concussion and damaged my neck in a collision in a game of AFL when I was 22 that resulted in a 2 day stay in hospital and a week in a neck brace
3-4 weeks later I started getting CHs.
I did read somewhere some time ago that in a survey of sufferers of CH that over 45% had had severe head trauma at some stage in their life prior to CHs starting .. Often many years before
Cheers
Chris

Yep, the jury's out on this one- no proof one way or the other, which is to say, it's possible.
I've never had a severe head trauma, but I played rugby union as a second row for 19 years for split eyebrows and busted teeth etc, and also had encephalitis as a two year old, so who knows?

Seeing as there is no definitive known cause for CH, it's questionable to rule out anything.

cheers peter.

Agree totally
Heather

but there again anyone playing rugby union!!! Sorry could not help myself there being an AFL fan. Albeit my team were beaten yesterday--YES A TOTALLY COMMITTED PORT POWER SUPPORTER. Just love a good game of footy no matter who is playing and at what level--nothing like a good country game.
