I am so glad I found this website. For about 4 years ( I am 30) I being suffering from some of the cluster headache symptoms. Once in a while I get the worst pressure sensation in one of my eyes (never both at the same time), it feels like its going to pop out of the socket. At the beginning I was very concern about glucoma and everytime it happend I went to the eye doctor for a pressure reading - it was within normal range. The other thing I noticed was that it switches sides almost immediatly. I associated this pain with eye strain (too much computer), alcohol intake, sinus congestion, but unfortunately I have not been able to establish a correlation. Some times the pain will last 4 hours sometimes a whole day. One of the major differences of my symptoms vs. the ones describe on this site is the severity of the pain. Although the pain is pretty bad it doesn't prevent me from working or sleeping. I would say the pain is a level 3-4. All the information I have read talks about extreme pain. Is this mean I might have something else? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
