Cluster Headache Causes
No one knows exactly what causes cluster headaches. As with many other headache syndromes, theories abound, many of which center on your autonomic or "automatic" nervous system or your brain's hypothalamus. These systems play a role in rhythmic or cyclical functions in your body. The involvement of either system in the syndrome would account for the periodic nature of the headache.
