Why Some People Wake Up With a Headache? Neurologists Have an Answer

Everybody has a headache once in a while, and the causes are multiple: stress, lack of sleep, alcohol consumption, and so on. But if you’re waking up with a headache too often, there’s a clear sign that you should seek a medical investigation as soon as possible.

Yahoo! Life (https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/neurologists-explain-why-keep-waking-123100434.html) speaks about the problem of headaches occurring just when you jump out of bed, and according to them, neurologists bring an explanation.

If headaches are affecting your life, go see a doctor ASAP

Simy Parikh, M.D., who’s an assistant professor of neurology from the Jefferson Headache Center at Thomas Jefferson University, declared as cited by Yahoo! Life:

It’s important for anyone with headache that’s affecting their life to see a doctor so they can be properly evaluated and not just rely on self-treatment or self-diagnosis.

Meds and lifestyle changes can prevent headaches from occurring.


Alexander Feoktistov, M.D., and also founder and director of the Synergy Integrative Headache Center from Chicago, said while also cited by Yahoo! Life:

There are also certain supplements and vitamins that could be beneficial, such as magnesium, biotin, riboflavin, coenzyme Q10, feverfew and sometimes butterbur.

The most common causes of morning headaches are the following:
 – Primary headache disorder
 – Sleep disorders
 – Stress
 – Dehydration
 – Certain medications
 – Bruxism
 – Low blood sugar
 – Musculoskeletal strain
 – Alcohol
 – Brain tumor
About 39 million people who live in the US are dealing with migraines, and according to the doctors, it’s the leading cause of repeated morning headaches. The good news is that developing repeated headaches in the morning is not necessarily a sign of something awful going on, like a brain tumor. But it’s a strong reason to seek medical guidance and talk to your doctor about your lifestyle and eventually, the pills you swallow.
