An uncommon type of headache is cluster headache. Cluster headaches usually occur about the same time every day. They are often centered over or around one eye. The eye can turn red and tear. The headache is usually severe and lasts a couple hours, returning the next day. During the first week of new cluster headaches, the daily pattern may be less established.

Do your symptoms suggest cluster headache?

No, I don't think so.
