What are symptoms of cluster headaches?

ANSWER

Symptoms of cluster headaches include:

  • Intense one-sided pain described as having a burning or piercing quality that is throbbing or constant .
  • Pain is located behind one eye or in the eye region, without changing sides.
  • Pain lasts a short time, generally 30 to 90 minutes (but can last for three hours); the headache will disappear, only to recur later that day (most sufferers get one to three headaches and some up to eight per day during a cluster period).
  • Headaches occur very regularly, generally at the same time each day, and they often awaken the person at the same time during the night.
