I usually get headache in the morning and afternoon and it vanishes after an hour or also. I verified with doctors but nobody is able to give proper answer. They say it may be related to stress or because I am sleeping under ceiling fan. They even gave me some headache tablet, but it has not reduced. What could be the reason? Vijay
Your question is very broad and sitting down with someone who specializes in headache disorders would be great, but we realize that this is not always possible. In any case, if the headaches are gone in one hour, that is almost the time for many medications to begin working. There are 300 medical and surgical conditions that are associated with Migraines and headaches, and it's difficult to tell you much without more information and not having seen you in person.

Full Question: My question pertains to the CPAP machine that I have tried unsuccessfully to use. I have tried different face and nasal mask to see if it would help any but it hasn't. The sleep number and humidity numbers have also been changed by the doctor several times. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea so I really don't think the machine was necessary in the beginning. My question is: many times I would wake during the night or morning with a bad headache/migraine. The sleep doctor always said "NO" it was not the machine that was causing it but when I did not sleep with the machine there was no head pain and then when I would put the mask back on for several nights I would have the pain. Now I tried this on and off for 9 months and now have stopped completely. I can't say that I have waked with head pain since I stopped the machine. What is your opinion? Thank you, Marlene.

Full Question: I wake up every morning with a soreness in the back of my neck and a hang-over like headache which makes me nauseous. I do not drink. I have had previous neck discectomy and fusion at three levels. I suffer from chronic muscle tightness in neck and shoulders. The headache lasts all day. Any suggestions? Aidan. Answer: Dear Aidan; You most probably have cervigogenic headaches based on your former neck problems. I suspect you don't sleep well and I would recommend you talk to your physician about a medication called tizanidine which reduces muscle spasm and helps sleep. It also helps chronic daily headaches .
