I don't want to say for certain that it's not cluster headaches since I am not qualified. But most, if not all, clusterheads can't go to sleep with an attack. Actually quite the opposite. When we get them in our sleep we get woken up because of the excrutiating pain they inflict.
Migraines also stem from the trigeminal nerve, which would explain why some of your pain is in a few of the places you mentioned.
When you say they come in clusters, what do you mean? How long does a given attack last for?
