In brief: Do tell.

How bad can your headaches be if you "forgot".
Cluster headaches are usually so severe that it would be difficult to ignore. "regular" headaches that come episodically, may not be "cluster" which is a varient of migraine. Nevertheless, if your headaches are becoming routine and frequent, talk to your doctor and list all the features and symptoms you feel so they can properly diagnose the situation.
