    Am I developing CH?

    Hello, this is my first post and as of now I'm not sure if I've ever had a cluster headache. I'm 20, male. I apologize if it's disrespectful in any way for me to post here, but talking to doctors is difficult and this is the best place to get expert opinions. For a few years now my left eye has always felt goofy. Sometimes a dull pain, 4-5/10 tops, develops behind it, but never lasts more than 30 seconds. occasionally, this pain is sharp, but only lasts a couple of seconds. Sometimes this eye pain leads to a light headache that I can always kill with ibuprofen. This week the feeling in my eye had been more consistent. I haven't risen above a 2/10 at any point, but I've consistently a feeling of slight pressure, or even tickling, behind, around, or to the sides of my eye. Occasionally the feeling moves to my temple. I haven't had anything like drooping eyelids or runny noses. But the eye does tear slightly when when these feelings are more present. I'm going to be honest, I've been scared of these headaches for years now, so part of this is confirmation, or being able to prepare and not being blind sided. My anxiety levels over the whole thing are quite high. I'm not sure I'd be able to deal with the pain people describe. Does this sound like the beginning for a lot of people, or are there things that get mistaken for clusters frequently? any replies are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I should also mention I don't drink or smoke, I'm completely sober.
