I was just listening to a program called The Health Show on NPR and they had a segment on headaches.Here is a briefsynopsis (with my thoughts in parenthesis) to what he was saying:

Dr. Katz: ...and then there are migraines. Those are very painful and can disable someone for one or two or even three days. (Great. This can be a great segue into clusters.) And closely related to the migraine is something called cluster headaches. (Yes! Good job Dr. Katz. Tell us more.) Those aren't as bad as migraines though. (You A**HOLE! Even if your limited knowledge means that an individual attack is not as long as 1 or 2 or 3 days, they are much more severe and we too can get them for that long with a break of an hour at best between attacks. And now you have put it out there that we don't have it as bad as migraine sufferers, where your wording very easily can also be construed to mean that it's less severe in intensity as well.)
