your symptoms do sound like cluster headache, but it's best to get a confirmation from a neurologist who is familiar with clusters. Go to the OUCH Website button on the left, and then press the Cluster Help menu. There is a listing there of Recommended Doctors, sorted by area. These are docs who our folks here have visited that we know understand clusters.
You might also want to try the oxygen therapy as an abortive. If you can't get your hands on oxygen, some folks here have experienced success doing deep breathing or physical exercise to get the oxygen flowing.
Best of luck to you and stick around. You can learn lots here.
Oh, and if your fiance needs help understanding what you're going through - press the Family Services button on that same menu on the OUCH website. There are a bunch of us supporters here who totally understand.
Hang in there, Jason.
