I been having this headache for weeks now. It seems like it wont go away. Its like my head hurts everytime i shake my head. ALso my neck hurts too..Anyone have any advise that will help me get rid of ...
I am waking up almost every morning with a headache, any ideas why?
I very rarely drink alcohol and get at least 8 hours of sleep but I wake up most every morning with a headache. Sometimes they go away within the first hour or so and then sometimes they linger all day. Although I say I get 8 hours of sleep I'm a light sleeper and my sleep is interupted probably 4 times a night (kids waking up and trips to the bathroom). I don't know what the deal is but am tired of dealing with the headaches.
You might need a new pillow. You can pinche a nerve if the pillow is too soft or too plump.
Sounds like a new pillow is order, as well as, deeper sleep cycles so that you can get fully rested. The muscles in your neck and shoulders get tired and start to tense sending tension up and over your head, causing the headache. I would suggest taking Valerian root, it will help you sleep deeper and also relax those muscles. The deal is, you are overtired and your muscles are screaming "let me get some damn rest!" Try putting a heating pad at your upper back/neck area............feels wonderful. Also, there is a spot on the back of your head,right where your neck and head connect.There's kind of a dip there(on me anyway),press in a circular motion,rubbing for a few minutes. You will actually feel the sinus cavity draining when you have hit the right spot. Good luck.
Do you have allergies?
It could be sinusitis or a sinus infection. Is it in your face like it's going to explode from pressure?
How long has t been going on for? Any other symptoms?
You could try running an air purifier in your bedroom and drink my water and see if that helps.
Maybe it could be something you're eating or drinking. I have reactions to an artificial sweetener in yogurts and some very common drinks and I get headaches, migraines, and even throw up from depending on how much I consume (which I try my hardest not to consume it). I try to consume as little processed foods as possible and staying away from stuff I know is not good from me. Just a thought.
Have you changed anything in your environment or diet recently?
Riddle me This!
I've had this same problem. I changed my pillow and that helped. If you have neck or back pains when you wake up it is most likely your pillow, bed, or the position you sleep in.
Also, what do you do during the day? I set in front of a computer monitor... I get headaches related to my eyes that sometimes that can last all night.
Other than that, you may want to go see your doctor.
Check for high blood pressure -soon.
SAD IN N.M.
See a doctor, it may be serious or nothing at all. or carbon monioxide.
You may be grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw. Your dentist can usually tell if thats happening
That could be a lot of different things: teeth-grinding, neck or back problems (most headache's originate in the neck or face), tension, dehydration, or something more serious. Definitely get to a doctor, but don't let them prescribe anything until you are confident of the cause--it is a nightmare trying to sort out the original problem from prescription drug side-effects.
There could be a number of reasons why you could be having a headache. The most probable reason though is: Headaches that are present when you wake up in the morning or get up from a nap may be caused by bruxism or clenching and grinding teeth during sleep.
