hi I never been diagnosed by a neurologist but definitely have cluster headaches.Its been 3-4 years since onset(31/male).It usually happens same time everyday(sometimes for 2 months or more).My pain kinda feels like earache,sore throat,blocked nostril,upper jaw pain,temple pain,behind eye pain,all on right side,all at the SAME time. It usually only lasts for less than 1 hour.If I take something like excedrin for migraine when I first notice the beginning of my ATTACK,I usually will not geta head-banger.I do feel "stalked" by my clusterbuddy alot lately but take my over-the-counter medicine and the headbanger stays at bay but lets me know its still there(very slight dull pain).One thing I notice is If I talk about my headache or think about it I will get a VERY bad headache that day.Its like a jinx when I say "I have not had a h/a in a while" THEN bammm..its here.
