Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe says he is suffering from a rare, agonising medical condition known as cluster headaches.

The 22-year-old actor said he was forced to cancel a number of professional commitments earlier this year when the pain became extreme, reported Daily Express.

He was diagnosed as suffering from a condition which causes intense pain on one side of the head and is experienced by just one per cent of the population.

"I was in the middle of these weird things called 'cluster headaches'. It's very rare evidently, but it's exceptionally painful. It makes a migraine look quite tame. At the time I thought I was being a wuss (coward). I was taking 12 (strong painkillers) a day and going, 'Why do I still have a headache?'," he said.
