I have been getting night time headaches for 1 year most nights. Once I get up, it goes away after half an hour or so, but then I am tired majority of the day. My CT scan was normal. My neurologist could not help me. Any suggestions would be appreciated. please help me! Sincerely, Mohzgan.
Since your doctor is unable to help you, it's time for you to see another doctor. Without being able to review your medical history and family medical history, fully discuss your symptoms with you, and examine you, there's not much anyone else can do directly for you.

I sometimes go to be with a terrible headache or will wake up with one or develop one after a few hours. I cannot take it so I usually take 2 Advil just to function during the day. I have told my doctor but he does not seem to take my complaints seriously. What do you think it is? What should I do to get some help with this? I am so tired of having these headaches....I can't deal with it. I usually have to go lay down, however they are not as bad as a migraine....Thank you , Amber.
