Introduction: Cluster headache is characterized by severe attacks of unilateral pain, but many patients experience symptoms more commonly associated with migraine such as persistent pain. Patients and methods: We evaluated cluster headache patients using a questionnaire and chart review to determine clinical characteristics. Results: Twenty-four of 50 subjects reported interictal pain outside of their acute attacks. Sixteen reported persistent pain more than half the time while in cycle. Unlike… Expand
Interictal Pain in Primary Headache Syndromes
TLDR
The incidence of interictal pain in primary headache disorders is described and the significance and biological meanings of this pain are suggested. Expand
Cluster headache beyond the pain phase
TLDR
Preictal and postictal symptoms are very frequent in CH, demonstrating that CH attacks are not composed of a pain phase alone. Expand
Cluster headache
TLDR
The clinical entity of cluster headache is reviewed by highlighting its unique and defining characteristics as an aid to correct diagnosis, before critically appraising current treatment methods. Expand

TLDR
Pre-attack symptoms were frequently observed in Korean patients with cluster headache, which was consistent with previous Western studies. Expand
Cluster headache: pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment
TLDR
The main focus of therapy is to abort attacks once they have begun and to prevent future attacks, and alternative interventions in patients with CH who have not experienced any meaningful benefit from preventive drugs are well defined. Expand
Phantom headache: pain-memory-emotion hypothesis for chronic daily headache?
TLDR
It is speculated that pain, memory, and emotions are interrelated in triangular pattern, and each of these three is related to other two in bidirectional pattern, i.e., stimulation of one of these will stimulate other symptoms/networks and vice versa (triangular theory for chronic pain). Expand
Chronic cluster headache and the pituitary gland
TLDR
Neuroimaging should be considered in all patients with CCH, especially those with an atypical presentation or evolution, and there may be shared pathophysiological mechanisms of primary and secondary cluster headache. Expand
Allodynia in cluster headache
TLDR
The high prevalence of cutaneous allodynian with similar risk factors for allodynia as found for migraine suggests that central sensitization, like in migraine, also occurs in cluster headache. Expand
The spectrum of cluster headache: A case report of 4600 attacks
TLDR
Clinicians attempting to personalise the administration of preventive treatment should pay notice to the variation over time in diurnal rhythmicity, as clinical characteristics of cluster headache attacks can vary greatly within the individual patient. Expand
Phenotype of Cluster Headache: Clinical Variability, Persisting Pain Between Attacks, and Comorbidities—An Observational Cohort Study in 825 Patients
TLDR
The aim of the study was to analyze the severity and extent of the clinical symptoms of episodic and chronic cluster headaches with regard to their variability and to compare them with the requirements of the International Classification of Headache Disorders 3rd edition (ICHD-3) diagnostic criteria.

Migrainous features in cluster headache
TLDR
It is not uncommon for a patient with a lifetime’s history of migraine to experience a typical bout of cluster headache, although the reverse is less common. Expand
Medication-overuse headache in patients with cluster headache
TLDR
Patients with CH, especially those with a personal and/or family history of migraine, must be carefully monitored for MOH, and medication withdrawal should be considered if a CH patient presents with features of MOH. Expand
Cutaneous Allodynia During Cluster Headache Attacks
TLDR
Two cluster headache patients who rapidly developed allodynia in trigeminal areas and in ipsilateral limbs, in one of whom accompanied by ipsilaterally limb pain is presented, and there is no report on spontaneous limb pain in CH patients. Expand
Chronic cluster headache: a French clinical descriptive study
TLDR
This study confirms the existence of auras and interictal signs and symptoms in patients with chronic CH, and male sex and smoking as CH risk factors, and primary and secondary chronic CH appear equally prevalent. Expand
Increased pain sensitivity is not a risk factor but a consequence of frequent headache: A population-based follow-up study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that increased pain sensitivity is a consequence of frequent tension‐type headache, not a risk factor, and support that central sensitization plays an important role for the chronification of tension‐ type headache. Expand
Quantitative Sensory Testing in Cluster Headache: Increased Sensory Thresholds
TLDR
The increased sensory thresholds on the cheeks as well as on the back of the hands are in agreement with an increased activation of the patients' antinociceptive system, suggesting that the hypothalamus is involved in the pathophysiology of CH. Expand
Dynamic mechanical (brush) allodynia in cluster headache: a prevalence study in a tertiary headache clinic
TLDR
There was no statistically significant association between the presence of allodynia and age, gender, diagnosis, disease duration or disease severity, and in conclusion, BA was common in this CH patient sample. Expand
Improved Identification of Allodynic Migraine Patients Using a Questionnaire
Using quantitative sensory testing (QST), we found that many migraineurs seeking secondary and tertiary care exhibit cutaneous allodynia whenever they undergo a migraine attack, but not interictallyExpand
Features involved in the diagnostic delay of cluster headache
TLDR
Cluster headache remains unrecognised or misdiagnosed in many cases for many years, and should be recognised as part of the clinical spectrum of CH. Expand
Cluster headache with aura
TLDR
Cluster headache with aura is rare and Auras always occurred with or were followed by a severe cluster headache, and two patients were related. Expand
