When during the day do cluster headaches normally happen?
Attacks of cluster headaches appear to be linked to the circadian rhythm, your body's 24-hour clock. They happen so regularly, generally at the same time each day, that they've been called "alarm clock headaches." One will often wake you up an hour or two after you go to bed. Nighttime attacks can be more severe than the daytime ones.
