I'm new here too - there are great people here who have a bevy of info and have been suffering for a lot longer than me, so I value their information.
My clusters also are on the right side, same symptoms as yours, eye droopy, watering, whole side of youf face feeling like it's gonna explode... been there, you have my sympathy.
Call your regular GP (Dr.), maybe you can get into see him faster than a neuro to get some meds. No one should have to suffer this unmedicated. One thing you have on your side is that you're male and they're bound to believe you have clusters - I had to go through 4 Dr.'s before one believed that's what I have, because I'm female... one of the few, the lucky....(yea, right!)
Anyway, you're not alone - anytime you need to yell, scream, complain about the pain... I'm here and I'm sure many others are too.
