Scalp pain... is this normal?

I've been having headaches very similar to those described on this site, but have yet to see one particular sympton that I have, and was wondering if perhaps I just overlooked it.

Since these things began, I have had an extremely painful scalp. It starts just above my right eye (which is where the headaches always are) and covers most of the area under my hair (specifically the right side of my head), not quite to the base of my skull and not quite as low as my ear. It feels almost like a sunburn, but at times it feels, in certain spots, like someone burning me with a cigarette. Though the headaches go away after a few hours, the scalp pain and tenderness remain pretty much constant. Is this unique to my situation, typical cluster pain, or could it possibly be something else all together. None of my doctors so far can figure it out.

Thanks in advance for your response.
