In brief: Cluster treatment

Since a cluster headache is severe but of such short duration, treatment must provide fast relief.
An effective abortive treatment uses oxygen at a flow rate of 7-10 liters per minute.. The treatment of choice for the prevention of both episodic and chronic cluster headache is verapamil (Calan), a calcium channel antagonist. See orofacial pain or headache specialist.

In brief: See a neurologist

Short of a good neurologist you will likely not get better and will suffer.
