I have migraine-like stabbing pain and headaches in the front and sides of my head, behind my ears and eyes as well. Could I have cluster headaches?

In brief: Possibly migraine

Cluster headaches are severe type of headaches which often occur in middle of the night and affect men a lot more commonly compared to females.
The pain in migraines can be as severe, but is often longer lasting. The head pain in cluster headaches is often accompanied by eye redness, etc. Consult your primary physician as soon as possible.
