Clusters usually hit 2 to 6 times a day. Each headache lasts 30 minutes to 2 hours. If you had a cluster headache I can assure you that you would not have made it to your therapists office. People just do not function with CH. It's all I can do to stagger 20 feet to the bathroom. People in cars when one hits usually have to pull over to the side of the road and sit it out. I don't think anyone has held a conversation while getting hit. It sounds to me like the second half of your therapist diagnosis is correct, Migraine. It doesn't sound like cluster to me. Imitrex is a migraine medication first and foremost. It just happens to work on some clusters too.
Hope this helps.
