There are a number of things that could cause this. One of the most common reasons for waking with a headache or a Migraine is a sleep issue. Too much sleep, too little sleep, sleeping on an irregular schedule, disrupted sleep, and poor quality sleep can all be possible issues, even if we think we're sleeping well. Take a look at Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep: Video.


Unexplained headaches should always be checked out. It's time to see your doctor about these.
