In brief: Like a migraine

But different. Very severe headaches that throbb, make one want to move rather than stay still and are treated by oxygen therapy most successfully.

In brief: Type of migraine

Cluster headache are considered vascular in nature, unlike classic migraine they tend to last for several days.
Cluster headaches usually last 30 min to 3 hours, appears at the same time every day (alarm clock headache) they often respond to 100% oxygen. It is important to get a proper diagnosis.
