Sorry to hear you're suffering. It does sound like you have migraines because of the length of the attack, the vomiting and the preference for laying down in a dark room.
I remember a conversation on the board a while back that said it is possible to have groups of migraine attacks - or "clusters" of migraines. Now, "cluster headaches" are a whole different kind of attack that really do need a new name - this would end a lot of the confusion out there between the two totally different syndromes.
As a layperson though, I cannot tell you precisely what you are going through but I would hazard a guess that you are suffering from migraines and not clusters. Different drugs treat each so please be careful and see a qualified neurologist to accurately diagnose and work to find you some relief.
Hope this helps.
