The best you can do is to visit a neurologist

If you read about the symptoms and they match yours, go see a neurologist. He/she will send you for an MRI of your brain to see if there are other reasons for your pain. You may be sent for a sleep study tor rule out sleep apnea. Basically, based on symptoms one is diagnosed and especially if the doctor can see the patient during the attack or watch a video of the patient having an attack.

The symptoms are typically. Quite difficult from migranes. The pain is hardly to bear, it takes three hours and sufferers walk around screaming.

Unilateral supraorbital pain, commonly described as a level 8 or greater. Autonomic signs like slowed pupil response, swelling, tearing, and congestion. Can wake you up at night, occurs after going to bed our shortly after waking. Responding well to high-flow oxygen can be diagnostic. Agitated behavior during an attack, and pain occurring nearly the same time each day for many days.

Google Cluster Headaches, there is a lot of info online. I like Clusterheadaches.org and the Cluster Headache Support Group. Generally symptoms are severe pain on one side of the head, commonly around the eye area, that lasts no more than an hour or two and reoccurs frequently, like daily, at the same time each day. OTC pain meds don't touch it.
