Do children ever have cluster headaches?

Tonight my 8 year old daughter complained of a slight headache when I got home from work. Within half an hour she was screaming in pain, holding her eye saying that it burned and complaining that the "sun" was too bright even though we were indoors. About 5-10 minutes later she said she was nauseous and eventually she did get sick. After that she seemed to get better, said she felt really tired and went to sleep. In doing some research I came across a description of cluster headaches.From what little I've read so far it sounds like this is more common in older people (not children) and men are more likely to get them. That would seem to rule out my daughter. What do you think?
