What are Cluster Headaches?
Cluster headaches refer to a type of headache causing severe pain over a series of days, weeks or even months. Generally, the headaches are short; however, the amount of pain associated with cluster headaches contributes to complications in your normal routine.
In most cases, the headaches occur at the same time of the year on an annual basis. They may cause intense pain around one specific eye. The pain associated with cluster headaches may become more intense than the pain of a migraine, but it usually lasts for a shorter amount of time.
Causes of the Headaches
The actual causes of cluster headaches are unknown. Since it does have some seasonal aspects to the headaches, many individuals assume it relates to allergic reactions; however, the headaches do not actually stem from allergies.
Since the most intense pain usually occurs around one eye, it is likely that the cluster headaches relate to a nerve or a set of nerves in the face.
