Is it possible for someone to have a mild cluster headache? If so how likely? Can it vary in severity throughout a cluster period? if not? What can mimic this disorder?

In brief: Mild Cluster

headache may be hemicrania continua if daily occurs only on one side without consistent features of Cluster ) There is no tearing, nasal discharge or flushing with hemicrania unless it is a paroxysmal intensification.
Hemicrania almost always responds to indomethacin ( 25 mg three times a day with food)
