Answer

In this disorder, headaches occur in groups or clusters. Nasal discharge, congestion, and a watery, red eye are present on the same side of the head as the headache. Pain localizes to one side of the head. Cluster headaches often awaken a patient from sleep and most often occur in middle-aged men. Cluster headaches are rare in children.
