|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Headache Migraine||Other: Carbon monoxide Other: Placebo||Not Applicable|
To investigate headache score and accompanying symptoms during and after inhalation of carbon monoxide.
With transcranial Doppler imaging, c-scan and laser speckle the investigators will investigate changes in blood flow velocity of the middle cerebral artery (MCA), diameter of the superficial temporal artery (STA), the radial artery and facial skin perfusion.

Active Comparator: carbon monoxide
Inhalation of carbon monoxide up to a carboxyhemoglobin concentration of 12% and 22%.
Other: Carbon monoxide
carbon monoxide, 4.7, Purity 99.997, inhalation of carbon monoxide in a volume corresponding to carboxyhemoglobin 10 and 20%, calculated from baseline Hg and body mass.
Placebo Comparator: placebo
- Headache scores [ Time Frame: 12 h ]Comparison between carbon monoxide and placebo (atmospheric air)
- Blood flow velocity [ Time Frame: 0-180 min after inhalation ]Carbon monoxide induced changes in blood flow velocity in the middle cerebral artery before and after inhalation.
- Artery circumference [ Time Frame: 0-180 min ]Carbon monoxide induced changes in the superficial temporal artery and the radial artery before and after inhalation.
- Facial blood flow [ Time Frame: 0-180 min ]Carbon monoxide induced changes in facial blood flow before and after inhalation.
