Very sorry to hear about your daughter's problem.
Passing out is not something I have heard of as being common among cluster headache sufferers.
The duration of her attacks sounds very short for it them to be typical cluster headache attacks. There is another condition with very similar symptoms known as Chronic Paroxysmal Hemicrania and this might be worth investigating. There is good information on this condition on this site. Suggest you print it off and then put it in front of your daughter's doctor/specialist and ask his opinion (don't push, they hate that!).
Are you aware of the UK Cluster Headache site
A good site, good information, good contacts, helpful people and in your(our) country.
I hope you are able to sort your daughter's problems out very soon.
